Narngulu, Eneabba, Cataby and Capel


Western Australia is the mineral processing hub of Iluka’s Australian operations. 

The Narngulu mineral separation plant, near Geraldton, produces final zircon and rutile products.  Iluka's operations at Capel, in south west Western Australia, produce synthetic rutile, a value added ilmenite product.

Narngulu and Capel host the bulk of Iluka’s metallurgical expertise – a key aspect of the company’s mineral processing and technical development activities. 

The Cataby mining operation is located approximately 150 kilometres north of Perth. Having commenced in 2019, Cataby has an anticipated mine life of 8.5 years, with the possibility to extend this by a further four years.

Eneabba is the highest grade rare earths operation globally. It currently involves the extraction, processing and sale of a monazite-zircon concentrate, reclaimed from a strategic stockpile stored at a former mine void. Iluka is pursuing an incremental approach to further development at Eneabba, including an expedited feasibility study for a fully integrated rare earths refinery.
