New Energy is a nickel company that is aiming to achieve ASX listing and an initial public offering (IPO) later on this year.

VRX Managing Director Bruce Maluish is pleased with the agreement.

"The Biranup Project tenements have an extensive and comprehensive exploration database that we have assembled and this will be a great starting point for NRG," he said.

“This is an ideal outcome for VRX Silica and its shareholders as it will allow us to focus on the company’s stated aim of becoming a global supplier of high-quality silica sand," he added.

VRX has significant silica sand projects in Western Australia and will continue with its aim of becoming a global high-quality silica sand producer.
