Centrex Metals (ASX:CXM) was up almost 200% after its subsidiary Agriflex scored a major phosphate offtake agreement with global fertiliser trading house Samsung C&T.

Centrex needs to get finance locked in, but the deal will cover the first three years of production from Agriflex’s planned $78m, 800,000tpa ‘Ardmore’ phosphate project in Queensland. Read more here.

It will provide Centrex with access to a host of overseas markets. Samsung is one of the world’s largest traders in fertilisers, with representatives in 73 offices in 43 countries around the world.

Samsung will be Agriflex’s ‘sole and exclusive’ marketing rep for sale to Korea, Japan, Indonesia, India and Mexico.

PVW Resources (ASX:PVW) shares have entered the stratosphere since announcing findings of up to 12.45% total rare earths oxides in assays from rock chip samples at its Tanami project in WA.

They soared 56% yesterday, sending the company’s shares up to 50c and prompting a speeding ticket from the ASX.

PVW, which has had no news to report since releasing a roadshow presentation last week, said it had no price sensitive news it had not yet divulged.
