The Anson Resources Ltd (ASX: ASN) share price has jumped into the green during today’s session. At the time of writing, Anson shares are swapping hands for 8.4 cents, a gain of 12%.

Today’s gain comes as Anson announced a key update to its Paradox brine project to the market.

Quick refresher on Anson Resources

Anson is a minerals exploration company that has particular interests in lithium, zinc, lead, and gold assets, among a list of other minerals.

It has several projects dotted around Australia and abroad, such as the Paradox brine project in Utah in the United States, and the Bull nickel-copper-PGE project in Western Australia.

Anson has a market capitalisation of $67 million at the time of writing.

What did Anson announce?

Anson revealed it had entered into a collaboration with TETRA Technologies at the Paradox brine project.

The Paradox brine project is a collection of claims and leases owned by the US and Utah governments, coupled with other local municipality agreements.

Henceforth, Anson confirmed the pair had signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to progress development at the site, including potential investment by TETRA.

The MOU effectively establishes a “framework of discussing options to work together” in order to “jointly develop” the Paradox site.

Both parties can now “negotiate an off-take agreement”, in addition to the economics of TETRA’s “patented process technology”.

TETRA is a “global leader in the production of bromine derivative products”, according to Anson. These products are used in “a number of applications including oilfield completion services and zinc-bromide energy storage batteries”.

Investors seem to have embellished the collaboration and have immediately rewarded Anson shares as a result of the news.
