Kenmare Resources operators of Moma Titanium Minerals Mine announce that Wet Concentrator Plant (WCP) B has commenced production at Pilivili.
“The move of Wet Concentrator Plant B represents the final stage of our growth programme and we are well-positioned to produce 1.2 million tonnes per annum of ilmenite from 2021.
“This is expected to deliver expanded margins and increased free cash flow generation, with the opportunity for stronger shareholder returns,” said Kenmare Resources’ Managing Director, Michael Carvill.
WCP B and its dredge were relocated 23 kilometres from their previous mining location of Namalope to the high grade Pilivili ore zone.
Following the move, the plant and dredge were floated across the Mualadi river and into the starter pond, mining was previously targeted for mid-Q3 2020 but has now commenced ahead of schedule.
Kenmare Resources is one of the world’s largest producers of mineral sands products.
