TZ Minerals International (TZMI) is pleased to announce the release of the 10th Titanium Feedstock Producer Comparative Cost Study prepared by TZMI since 2001. This year, the TZMI team has put together a revamped cost study, which includes new presentation and functionality as well as a historical perspective covering the past 10 years for producers across the feedstock sector, ensuring the Study remains as the essential reference for comparative operating costs in the global titanium feedstock industry.
TZMI’s primary measure of competitiveness in the industry is the revenue-to-cash cost ratio and as such individual operations are identified, however this measure is a combination of revenue and cash costs, so specific parameters are not identified. Costs are defined for groups of operations: titanium slag, synthetic rutile, rutile, chloride ilmenite and sulfate ilmenite producers. A total of 25 mineral sands operations have been included in this Comparative Cost Study, ranging from typical titanium minerals producers to the more sophisticated ilmenite beneficiation processing operations producing titanium slag and synthetic rutile.
The intention of this Study is to achieve the following objectives:
