Let’s take a look at the latest news from Mineral Resources. 

Quick refresher

Mineral Resources is a lithium and iron ore miner with ambitious plans to boost its production by as much as 350% over the next 5 years.

Its share price has been increasing in correlation with the price of iron ore and the growing demand for lithium.

Additionally, Macquarie has tipped the company to pay fully franked dividends of $3.32 per share in financial year 2021 and then $3.05 per share in financial year 2022.

That would see Mineral Resources with fully franked dividend yields of 6.4% and 5.9% respectively.

The latest news to drive the Mineral Resources share price

The last time the market heard from Mineral Resources was on Tuesday this week.

The company announced its wholly-owned subsidiary, Energy Resources Limited, has secured a drilling rig for the Lockyer Deep 1 well.

The news saw the Mineral Resources share price gain 0.43%. While that doesn’t sound much, for context, that same day the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) fell 0.59%.

The Lockyer Deep 1 well is a conventional gas exploration well located in the onshore Perth Basin.

The newly secured rig is expected to start drilling later this month.

Energy Resources holds 80% of the permit’s interest, while Norwest Energy NL (ASX: NWE) holds the other 20%.
