Green day, for some

DESPITE a red day on the bourse for the majority of resource players, Red 5 and Swick Mining Services had a day out on the green, notching up the greatest gains in share price for the day. Swick’s share price soared 17c to close at 94c after it won a rig contract to supply up to nine underground diamond drill rigs to Newmont Mining as part of a three-year tender, the biggest contract yet awarded to the Perth-based contractor.
