The Neometals Ltd (ASX: NMT) share price is pushing higher on Wednesday.

At the time of writing, the share is trading 4.17% in the green at $1.00 apiece on no market-sensitive news. Earlier in the day, the share price hit an intraday high of $1.035.

In broader market moves, the S&P/ASX 300 Metals and Mining Index (ASX: XMM) is also trading almost 3% higher today.

What’s up with the Neometals share price?

Two recent updates may be inflecting positively on the company’s share price lately.

Firstly, the company noted that it could become a low-cost producer of the chemical element, vanadium.

Following a feasibility study at its Vanadium Recovery Project, estimates found the company could produce around 19 million pounds of vanadium each year at a net cost of US$4.38 a pound.

The project is seeking to recover vanadium from slag, a by-product of the steel-making process. Neo is working to obtain a 50:50 stake in a joint venture with a Scandanavian company.

Neometals then provided a second update. The company outlined reasons for the delay in completing the engineering and cost study (ECS) of its Primobius GmbH joint venture (JV).

It says the ECS will be delivered in two parts, an individual shredding plant and a hydrometallurgical refining plant. They are due for completion in July and Q4 FY23 respectively.

Delays are understood to be from the venture’s focus on its Hilchenbach Spoke operation and fulfilling other agreements, TMF reported last week.

In the last 12 months, the Neometals share price has climbed 107% into the green.
