The post Mineral Resources (ASX:MIN) share price storms higher on Wednesday appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –

The Mineral Resources Limited (ASX: MIN) share price extended its run into the green from the start of today’s session.

Over the past month, mineral resources shares have pushed 11% higher on the charts.

Mineral’s shares are now exchanging hands at $61.51 apiece, a 2.28% gain on the day.

What’s behind Mineral Resources share price lately?

Mineral Resources’ shares have been under pressure since it announced the 40% acquisition of RHIOJV from Red Hill Iron Limited (ASX: RHI).

The RHIOJV sites contain an iron ore grade of 56.44%, and the deal will close in early September.

The transaction came in at a total of approximately $400 million. Half of that amount will be paid once the first shipment of ore is sent for export.

Moreover, Red Hill receives a royalty under the agreement, with the fee comprised of 0.75% free onboard revenue.

In addition to these moves, analyst sentiment on Mineral shares appears to reflect a positive tone also.

For instance, brokers Citi and Goldman Sachs each reiterated their 12-month price targets on Mineral Resources shares.

Citi now has a price target of $65 on Mineral shares, after upgrading its target by 27%, whereas Goldman sees the Mineral Resources share price valued at $61.

Therefore, given the corresponding moves exhibited on its chart, it stands to reason this fundamental momentum in the company’s growth engine has had some inflection on the Mineral Resources share price.
