While the market is pushing higher on Tuesday and is on course to record a solid gain, it pales in comparison to some of the gains being printed today.

For example, three ASX mining stocks that are rocketing higher today are listed below:

BBX Minerals Ltd (ASX: BBX)

The BBX Minerals share price was up as much as 27% at one stage today. This followed news that impressive results were obtained from a highly successful bioleaching pilot plant test utilising a sample from the Tres Estados project in Brazil. BBX Minerals describes itself as a unique mineral exploration and mineral processing technology company.

Forrestania Resources Ltd (ASX: FRS)

The Forrestania share price was up a massive 163% to 20 cents before being halted from trade. This rise was driven by the release of a drilling update from the ASX mining stock's flagship Forrestania project in Western Australia's southern Yilgarn region. The company's Calypso prospect is believed to be a prospective host for Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatites. This is based on anomalous soil geochemistry, outcropping pegmatites, and pegmatite intercepts in historic drilling.

Leeuwin Metals Ltd (ASX: LM1)

The Leeuwin Metals share price was up as much as 23% to 43 cents during intraday trade. This morning, this ASX mining stock revealed that sampling of lithium drill core is underway at the Jenpeg Lithium Project in Canada, with assay results expected in 4 to 8 weeks. Management commented: "Jenpeg is an emerging lithium discovery in Manitoba, with work to date indicating that the region has the potential to host a large-scale, lithium rich pegmatite system."
