The market may be sinking lower again on Thursday but not all shares have been dragged into the red.

Three shares at the small end of the market that have made strong gains today are listed below. Here's why they are on the rise today:

The Beadell Resources Ltd (ASX: BDR) share price is up over 9% to 4.3 cents on Thursday. Earlier this week the gold miner provided its annual resource and reserve statement update. In the update the miner revealed that it has undertaken insufficient drilling to add to its mineral resources and ore reserves estimates in 2018. While this was slightly underwhelming, investors appear to have looked beyond this due to its future plans. Management advised that it is looking forward to demonstrating the potential of its Tucano mine upon completion of its transaction with Great Panther.

The Central Petroleum Limited (ASX: CTP) share price has surged 7% higher to 15.5 cents. This morning the energy producer announced that its customer Incitec Pivot (ASX:IPL) has advised that its Gas Sale Agreement is now expected to commence between December 29 and January 10. Management advised that these dates reflect when the Northern Gas Pipeline is anticipated to be ready for commercial operations. Furthermore, Central is currently selling commissioning gas to Jemena, and this is expected to ramp up as the date for Northern Gas Pipeline commercial operations approaches.

The LiveHire Ltd (ASX: LVH) share price is up 4% to 50 cents after the talent technology company announced an enterprise agreement with DuluxGroup Limited (ASX: DLX). The release explains that the enterprise agreement represents annualised recurring revenue (ARR) of more than three times the current average ARR across its clients, in addition to other non-recurring upfront revenue. Management believes the agreement signals significant progression in the company's direct sales strategy, as it demonstrates ongoing applicability and adoption of the LiveHire platform with larger enterprises.
