3 ASX stocks that jumped more than 7% yesterday


The S&P / ASX 200 Index (Index: ^AXJO) (ASX: XJO) fell 13.6 points yesterday, or 0.3% to close at 4,123.3. Very low volumes suggest investors have decided to avoid the market entirely, given the high volatility and global economic uncertainty.

Despite the falling market, these three stocks managed to rise by more than 7%.

Lynas Corporation Limited (ASX: LYC) climbed 8.6% to $1.015 on news that an appeal to stop the company proceeding with its rare earth minerals processing plant in Malaysia, had been dismissed by Malaysia’s Minister for Innovation, Science and Technology. Lynas has faced strong opposition from locals concerned about the radioactive waste that could be emitted from the plant. The company and shareholders will be hoping this is the last legal hurdle they have to overcome.

Gryphon Minerals Limited (ASX: GRY) rose 8.3% to end at 72 cents. The mineral explorer is primarily focused on its Banfora Gold project in Burkina Faso, in West Africa, and aims to produce 200,000 ounces of gold per annum from the project. Gryphon also holds 15% of Renaissance Minerals Ltd (ASX: RNS), and 12% of Tawana Resources Ltd (ASX: TAW).

Integra Mining Ltd (ASX: IGR) jumped 7.5% to 43 cents, despite warning that its production guidance could take a hit due to delays at its Randalls gold project near Kalgoorlie, due to mechanical problems. The company was expecting to produce 16,000 ounces of gold in the June quarter.

Others risers include Medusa Mining Limited (ASX: MML) up 4.7% to $5.34 and Primary Health Care Limited (ASX: PRY) which gained  4% to close at $2.88.
