Stornoway Diamond Corp. (SWY) closed unchanged at 19 cents on 630,000 shares. The company has been silent of late, but it should have its 2018 results within a month. Cameo Cobalt Corp. (CRU) up one-half cent to 13.5 cents on 8.05 million shares. The company has closed its acquisition of the Max mine and Willa project in British Columbia from Dan Omeniuk's long halted MX Gold Corp.
