The Tutunup Mineral Sands Project includes the development of a mining operation and associated infrastructure. Iluka is targeting a chloride ilmenite deposit that contains titanium dioxide and zircon. These minerals are used in a wide variety of applications including the production of ceramic tiles and pigments.

The project is part of Iluka’s ongoing South West Operations, being a continuation of mining and production of heavy mineral concentrate (HMC) in the region. The project is currently in the pre-feasibility study phase.
