ILMENITE

Ilmenite is a placer mineral found only in some parts of the world. It has a great demand for many industries for its utilities vary from pigment industry to steel industry. Over 96% of the world wide use of Ilmenite are in titanium dioxide TiO2 form that has a wide range of strategic applications. V.V. Mineral started production of Ilmenite in early 2000 in anticipation of the granting of the export license and our first Ilmenite was delivered to our customer in October 2000. The production capacity now stands at 500000 metric tonnes per year and is expected to rise steadily as market conditions allow. We currently produce several grades of high quality sulphate grade Ilmenite which are becoming increasingly sought after due to their ideal characteristics of good digestibility combined with low contained Fe203,U, Th, Cr2O3 etc., Currently we have eight processing plants in operation (as of 2013) and have proposed to set up two more plants, which allow us to provide a greater degree of product flexibility than generally available from traditional mineral processing operations.
