The Fenix Resources Ltd (ASX: FEX) share price rocketed up 26% today on news it has secured a deal with Geraldton Port. The agreement will allow the company to export 1.25 million tonnes per annum of iron ore using the port’s shiploader.

At the time of writing, the Fenix share price is trading at 21.5 cents, in a day where share prices of iron ore producers on the ASX have broadly risen.

About today’s agreement

Fenix signed binding port access and lease agreements with Mid West Ports Authority (MWPA), operator of the Port of Geraldton in Western Australia.

These agreements will secure for Fenix a port allocation of 1.25 million tonnes per annum of iron ore, to be exported utilising the Berth 5 shiploader.

The term of the lease is four years, with two additional two-year extensions at Fenix’s discretion.

Fenix says the deal will support the company’s flagship Iron Ridge Project, which has been in development since September and is due to start mining, crushing, and road transport operations this month.

The Geraldton Port is located around 490km by road from the Iron Ridge Project.

Fenix managing director, Rob Brierley, said:

We have been working closely with MWPA for well over a year, and it has now culminated into significant commercial agreements that enable Fenix to commence iron ore production and to export its first shipment of product early in the new year.

A quick take on Fenix Resources

Specifically, the study concluded a maiden ore reserve of 7.76 million tonnes at 63.9% iron, which underpins its forecast annual production of 1.25 million tonnes for a mine life of around 6.5 years.
