]Dublin, Ireland --- 30 April 2012 - Irish mining company Kenmare Resources is conducting a study with a view to the further expansion of its heavy sands mine in Mozambique, but points out that investment in new electricity supply will be required if the project goes ahead.

Kenmare's current expansion of the Moma mine ‒ which will lead to an annual production of  1.2Mt of ilmenite, 75,000t of zircon and 21,000t of rutile ‒ will be completed in the last quarter of this year, but Reuters reports that, given high prices and strained supply, there is scope for more.

Ilmenite and rutile are sources of titanium dioxide, a white pigment used in paints, textiles and plastics. Zircon is used in ceramics like dinnerware, kitchen tiles and bathroom products.

“By the end of this year we plan to have it completed,” company manager for Mozambique Gareth Clifton told Reuters, referring to the feasibility study for the new expansion project.  

“There is a shortage of supply at the moment and prices are good,” he said.

The price of ilmenite surged from around US$100 per tonne to US$300 to US$400/t in 2011, Clifton revealed. Rutile prices doubled from US$1,000/t, while the price of zircon jumped from US$1,000 to US$2,400/t.

“We expect that growth rate to be maintained, and in the short term we don't expect any new entrants into the market,” Clifton concluded.
