Sierra Rutile

Iluka completed the acquisition of Sierra Rutile Limited by means of a merger on ​7 December 2016.

Sierra Rutile is a large, long life rutile mining and processing operation with material expansion options. It also provides the company with a quality mineral sands operation to continue to service the high grade titanium dioxide feedstock market. Combined with Iluka’s existing operations and internal projects, Sierra Rutile also provides increased portfolio flexibility in relation to capital expenditure timing.
