The Tombador Iron Limited (ASX: TI1) share price is one of the best performers on the ASX market today. Its shares are rocketing 49% higher to 11 cents at the time of writing. This comes on the back of a signed offtake agreement with Trafigura.

Based in Singapore, Trafigura is one of the world's largest commodity trading houses. The company provides services to connect producers, processors, and consumers in the oil and petroleum, metals, and minerals markets.

Let's take a closer look at the agreement and what this means for the Trafigura share price. 

What's pushing the Tombador share price higher?

The Tombador share price is on the move today after announcing a lucrative partnership deal.

According to its release, the company advised it has executed a binding offtake agreement with Trafigura.

Under the agreement, Trafigura will purchase 100% of Tombador's high-grade iron ore that is mined and sold to the international export market. This does not include the separate sales that are made domestically to the Brazilian market.

While the release did not provide much information, Tombador stated that the contract terms include details in regards to the sale, shipment, delivery, and pricing for the iron ore. In addition, Trafigura will provide a pre-delivery partial payment to Tombador for support of the additional working capital.

The contract is valid for an initial minimum period of 3 years from when iron ore is first produced at the mine. Provided both parties are satisfised, the term of the deal will be renewed annually.
