- Investment group Starvest said its annual net asset value per share fell 14%, owing to weakness in the resources sector.

'The majority of our investee companies have seen a small decrease in share price year on year, reflecting the lack of interest in the basic resource sector during the year,' Starvest said.

'But despite the poorer market sentiment several investee companies have announced very encouraging exploration results and/or excellent progress made towards production.'

The company's current investments include Greatland Gold, Cora Gold, Kefi Mineral and Block Energy.

At 3:03pm: [LON:SVE] Starvest PLC share price was -0.15p at 1.85p
