11.30am: Pleasant surprise for Europa Metals at Toral
Europa Metals PLC (LON:EUZ) shares shot up 9.6% to 0.03p after some welcome news from the Toral project in Spain.
The company said the third hole it has drilled at the project ran into additional layers of mineralisation in a wide zone.

The broker has moved from 'neutral' to 'underweight' and slashed its price target from 330p to 260p. Glencore's shares currently trade at 227.4p, down 1.3% on the day.
