What did NRW announce?

Investors appear pleased with the company’s latest update, sending the NRW share price higher in mid-morning trade.

According to its release, NRW advised that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Primero Group, has executed a letter of intent (LOI) with Panoramic Resources Limited. The agreement will see Primero conduct a number of works. These will fall under an operations and maintenance contract at the Savannah Nickel project. This will also include servicing and ensuring the smooth running of the mine’s processing and surface infrastructure facilities.

The contract will be valid for an initial period of 3 years, with a possible 2-year renewal option. Additionally, it is expected that the new deal will generate $35 million in revenue for Primero.

NRW highlighted that Primero has been successfully expanding its business in the base and battery metals sectors. It anticipates that new pipeline opportunities in the operations and maintenance space could see it grow further.

NRW CEO, Jules Pemberton, commented:

This agreement further strengthens the annuity revenue stream that our Minerals, Energy and Technology division has been building through its various businesses.
