Fenix Resources (ASX:FEX) is a WA-based minerals explorer transitioning to miner. Its 100 percent owned, flagship Iron Ridge Iron Ore Project is a premium DSO deposit which hosts a JORC 2012 compliant resource located around 490 km by road from Geraldton port.
High grade iron ore attracts a premium price on the seaborne market as Chinese steel works increasingly demand more pure inputs with lower emissions due to increasing strict government regulations.
Only crushing and screening is required for Fenix Resources’ ore, which is proposed to be trucked to the port by a JV signed off with trucking specialist Minehaul Pty Ltd headed by respected logistics expert Craig Mitchell who was the founder and owner of Mitchell Corp before selling to Toll Group.
