In afternoon trade, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is on course to start the week with a disappointing decline. At the time of writing, the benchmark index is down 0.5% to 7,783.9 points.

Four ASX shares that are not letting that hold them back today are listed below. Here's why they are rising:

Core Lithium Ltd (ASX: CXO)

The Core Lithium share price is up 15% to 10.5 cents. Investors have been buying the lithium miner's shares after it exceeded its FY 2024 production guidance. Over the 12 months, Core produced 95,020 dry metric tonnes (dmt) of spodumene concentrate and shipped 97,423 dmt. This led to Core Lithium reporting an unaudited cash balance of $87.6 million at 30 June, which is up from $80.4 million at the end of March. However, revenue will now dry up with all activities suspended at the Finniss operation. And while restart assessments are underway, management said that the resumption of activities "would only occur when we are confident the lithium market conditions support such a decision."

Encounter Resources Ltd (ASX: ENR)

The Encounter Resources share price is up almost 21% to 88 cents. This has been driven by the release of drilling results from the Aileron project in Western Australia. The niobium explorer revealed that aircore drilling has intersected further shallow, high-grade mineralisation at the West Arunta-based project. Encounter Resources' executive chairman, Will Robinson, commented: "Aircore drilling is defining new belts of shallow niobium-REE carbonatite hosted mineralisation in the West Arunta. Highly enriched, near surface mineralisation has now been intersected at both the Crean and Emily targets which are located on separate structures at Aileron, over 10km apart."

RED 5 Limited (ASX: RED)

The Red 5 share price is up 8.5% to 40.7 cents. This morning, this gold miner announced that it has entered into a restructured hedge facility and security package, repaid all outstanding loans, and restructured the hedging from the legacy Silver Lake Resources Limited (ASX: SLR) common terms deed. In addition, it advised that preliminary group sales for the fourth quarter were 110,818 ounces of gold. This brought full year sales to 455,259 ounces of gold.

Regis Resources Ltd (ASX: RRL)

The Regis Resources share price is up 2.5% to $1.82. This follows the release of the gold miner's fourth quarter and full year update. In respect to the latter, Regis Resources achieved production of 417,700 ounces of gold for FY 2024. This was within its group production guidance range for the period. Management also revealed that it achieved a record $109 million increase in its quarterly cash and bullion balance. This took its cash and bullion balance to its highest ever level of $295 million.
