Edenville Energy, the African energy exploration and development company, rose 5% on Monday morning after it announced "very encouraging" results from analysis of its Mkomolo deposit on the Rukwa Coalfield project in south western Tanzania.

The firm, which holds a 25% working interest in Ruvuma, said majority stakeholder Aminex had appointed investment bank FirstEnergy Capital to manage the farm-out of up to 50% of the two companies' respective working interests.
