The S&P/ASX 300 Index (ASX: XKO) is charging higher today following a mixed daily movement throughout the week.

At the time of writing, the ASX 300 is up 0.74% to 7,477 points. This means that over the past month, the index is now hovering around 2% lower.

Chalice Mining Ltd (ASX: CHN)

The Chalice share price is currently topping the charts, surging 9.62% to $8.09 during early afternoon trade.

Another big mover on the ASX 300 is Imugene — its share price is currently up 6.10% to 43.5 cents.

The Australian immuno-oncology focused biopharmaceutical company also hasn’t released any market-sensitive news to the ASX.

However, its shares are being added to the ASX 300 Index. This enables fund managers to include Imugene shares when investing in the S&P/ASX Indices. The official date for the inclusion is 20 September.

The Australian Strategic Materials share price is pushing 4.81% higher to $10.90.
