High Titanium Resources and Technology Limited (“HTL”), formerly Queensland Industrial Minerals Ltd (“QIM”), is a public company established on 31st October 2002 for the purpose of developing a mineralised area known as “Wateranga” under Exploration Permit Minerals (“EPM”) 13278. The Wateranga area contains significant quantities of high quality Ilmenite, Feldspar, Apatite and Zircon in an eluvial style deposit (unconsolidated) surrounding the “Wateranga gabbro”. The Gabbro is approximately 5km wide by 6km long and is characterised by an outcrop some 1.6km long, 600m wide and 120m high.

HTL develops steadily since the establishment of the company. Creating long-term shareholder value is always HTL’s priority. We are committed to working in ways that are consistent with our values of integrity, performance and teamwork. HTL board members believe that as Wateranga project will gradually move into production stage from 2016-2017 financial year, HTL will become emerging force in industrial minerals industry, with supplying Australian and International market ample amount of high quality industrial minerals in the following 30 to 40 years. Meanwhile to accomplish HTL’s ultimate mission that is to output long-term values to shareholders, employees and local communities.

Bundaberg News Mail – MINING FOR NEW EXPORT – Export opportunities grow as work gets underway to extract versatile mineral from site near Bundy (30/01/2020)

China’s ilmenite market update in December (16/12/2019)

Currently the supply of imported high-quality ilmenite continues to be tight, the overall market is in short supply, and prices remain high.

Tight supplies of the mineral sand ilmenite has led to a second price increase in two weeks for the titanium dioxide feedstock. (23/09/2019)

Limited availability and restricted supplies are propelling concentrate prices up with steady demand for sulphate ilmenite in China and Europe, according to industry sources.

Shortage of imported ilmenite supply in China (24/07/2019)

Recently in China, the import of ilmenite market is still active, especially in the case of significant domestic inventory being consumed. However, most of the miners outside China still do not have much stock supply. On the hand, the spot is tight, and the demand in the international market is increasing, which leads to the scarcity of the amount going to China. On the other hand, due to environmental factors, most countries of miners have imposed export restrictions on ilmenite.

According to industrial website, India and Vietnam, the main suppliers of titanium ore in China, have not resumed normal supply to the Chinese market so far. Indian miners are still waiting for the government to lift the ban, and Vietnam’s export quota has been delayed.

In addition, the titanium mines in Kenya and Mozambique will not be available for sale in the near future, so they have not yet resumed their offer.

Supply-demand of global titanium raw material will not change in 2019 (05/02/2019)
Origin: RuidowTi

Recently, the world’s major titanium raw material producers have announced the production and operation in 2018, and made preliminary predictions on the market in 2019. After reviewing the reports of several companies, it was found that each company basically showed similar conditions, and this is also the general trend of the development of titanium raw materials market in 2018 & 2019.

In 2018, the output of major titanium raw material companies in the world has not increased, and the output of many producers has declined for various reasons. Among them, several companies have experienced the end of the mine life cycle. With the decrease of remaining reserves and rich ore content, the output of some mines in 2019 will continue to decline. The development of new mines and the extension of existing mines are still in progress, but it is impossible to compensate for the decline of production in 2019, which in turn will affect the global supply of titanium raw materials.

Ruidao believes that the high total imports of titanium concentrate in China in 2018 mainly reply on the low-quality titanium concentrate and middlings, and the supply of high-quality titanium concentrate and rutile is still relatively small. At present, the domestic market has initially reflected the trend of differentiation. It has shown that demand for high-grade raw materials is robust with firm prices and even rising. On contrast, low-quality raw materials are under sales pressure with slow sales and poor prices. Ruidao believes that this situation will continue or even further intensify in 2019.
