The Element 25 Ltd (ASX: E25) share price is firmly in positive territory today. This comes after the company announced that it has finalised an agreement in preparation for its first manganese concentrate shipment.

During early afternoon trade, the mineral exploration and mining company’s share price is fetching for $2.24, up 2.75%. In comparison, the All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) is also travelling higher at 7,318 points, up 0.6%.

Details of the Element 25 update

Investors are pushing Element 25 shares higher after the company achieved an important milestone for its future operations.

According to its release, Element 25 advised it has executed a Multi User Access Agreement with the Pilbara Port Authority. Therefore, the company will be allowed to use the Port Hedland Utah Point facility to export in bulk its manganese product. A crucial ingredient for electric vehicle batteries, the mineral will come from Element 25’s wholly-owned production facility at the Butcherbird Project.

Furthermore, the Utah Point facility is considered to be well equipped to handle multi-user bulk and loading operations.

Element 25 did not disclose the commercial terms of the agreement but stated that they are in line with normal operating terms. This also includes covering the company’s capacity requirement of up to 390 kilotons per annum for its first stage of operations.

E25 managing director, Mr Justin Brown commented:

This is another important milestone on the way to our first sale of manganese concentrate, and we are excited to be closing in on our first shipment of Butcherbird’s material to our offtake partners.
