The Wet Concentrator Plant B has begun production ahead of time after the company recently moved a 7,000 t plant and a 1,700 t floating dredge 23 km along the purpose-built road to a new location within the project area.

Titanium feedstock producer Kenmare Resources began production in the Pilivili high-grade zone of its Moma project in Mozambique.

The cost of the move and installation is estimated at over US$106 million and will enable the company to achieve a production rate of 1.2 million t/yr of ilmenite from 2021 at Moma, a 35% increase on last year.

The Moma mine is one of the largest titanium minerals deposits in the world and following the relocation, Kenmare will provide approximately 10% of the global supply of titanium feedstock.
