Premium Ilmenite Concentrate
Tormin’s Premium Ilmenite Concentrate is a high grade magnetic concentrate which includes in excess of 85% – 90% ilmenite and minimum of 8-12% garnet.
The high-grade Ilmenite Concentrate is sold globally in bulk shipments to tertiary Magnetic Separation Plant (MSP) processing facilities where it is processed into finished sulphate ilmenite with a 48-52% titanium dioxide component. Due to its high iron component, the Tormin finished ilmenite product is ideal for direct feed into downstream smelting, resulting where the primary ilmenite feed stock is turned into high grade titanium slag and pig iron billets.
The Tormin Ilmenite Concentrate is a medium-grade magnetic concentrate which includes in excess of 70% ilmenite (55% in low grade ilmenite) and a minimum of 15% garnet as well as zircon.
Ilmenite concentrate production from Tormin in 2015 was in excess of 100,000 tonnes per annum, and increased to an annualised production of 211,704 tonnes in 2016 and 217,019 tonnes in 2017.
