The diamond and specialty minerals stocks box score on Friday was a rousing 110-60-130 as the TSX Venture Exchange rose 13 points to 674. HPQ-Silicon Resources Inc. (HPQ) was a busy trader, slipping one-half cent to 38 cents on 3.24 million shares.

There has been no news in over a month.

(RTEC), from calling a management committee meeting and presenting Star with a $40-million cash call for work on the FalCon diamond project in central Saskatchewan.
