It’s a good day to be a shareholder in these ASX mining shares. They’ve each surpassed their previous 52-week highs and, in many cases, reached their highest point ever.
But, perhaps, mining shares might be a bit broad as each of these 5 stocks deal in a common commodity – lithium.
They were also all involved in S&P Dow Jones Indices’ March quarterly review.
Let’s take a look at the ASX lithium explorers and developers reaching long-forgotten heights on Thursday.
The ASX mining shares hitting new 52-week highs
ANZ Minerals Ltd (ASX: AVZ)
The AVZ Minerals share price is surging 8.25% at the time of writing.
However, earlier today the lithium explorer’s stock boomed to a new 52-week high – and all-time high – of $1.14, representing a 10.6% gain.
Interestingly, there’s been no news released by the company for nearly 3 weeks.
As could the rising price of lithium.
According to reporting by OilPrice.com, battery-grade lithium carbonate was trading for an average of US$76,700 per tonne in mid-March – 95% higher than it was at the start of 2022.
Additionally, prices are expected to remain high as demand continues.
All this has likely helped send the lithium explorer’s stock to its new 52-week high.
Lake Resources N.L. (ASX: LKE)
Another ASX lithium explorer is hitting new all-time highs today. The Lake Resources share price reached $1.87 today, representing a 3.8% gain.
There’s been no news from the company lately. But, once again, lithium prices could be to blame for the stock’s gains.
Impressively, the Lake Resources share price has gained a whopping 87.5% since this time last month.
Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO)
Surprise, surprise: Another lithium explorer has made its way onto this list.
The Core Lithium share price hit a new 52-week high – and all-time high – of $1.29 on Thursday, representing a 4% increase.
By now, I’m sure readers will be sensing a pattern as, once again, there’s been no word from the company.
However, it was added to the S&P/ASX 300 Index (ASX: XKO) prior to Monday’s open.
Sayona Mining Ltd (ASX: SYA)
Another lithium stock, another 52-week high.
Lithium developer, Sayona Mining saw its share price hit its highest point since 2009 when it peaked at 24 cents today – a 14.2% gain.
The Sayona Mining share price took off earlier this month on news of its Québec lithium resource.
Like Lake Resources, Sayona Mining was also welcomed to both the All Ords and the ASX 300 earlier this week.
Firefinch Ltd (ASX: FFX)
Finally, Firefinch – ASX-listed gold and lithium developer – surpassed its previous 52-week high on Thursday.
At its intraday high, the Firefinch share price was trading at 93 cents, a 4.4% increase from its previous closing price.
In a double whammy, the company’s stock might be being boosted by both the gold price – gold futures are currently up 0.24% according to CNBC – and the lithium price.
The company was also admitted to the All Ords and the ASX 300 on Monday.
