Friday the 13th sees red

THE day’s trading ended on a subdued note, with the big miners dropping after a strong week, including a lifetime high of 6195.8 points on the S&P/ASX200 reached in intraday trading before it closed lower at 6135.8. Bucking the trend, however, was the latest uranium listing, which proved that there’s still wind in the sails of the yellowcake boom.

Crossland Uranium Mines, which has prospects in the Northern Territory and South Australia, debuted at 59c and leapt to 72.5c in intraday trading before closing at 61c.
