Australia has a world-class mineral sands resource base. The titanium-containing minerals ilmenite and rutile are feed stocks for the production of most paints, pigments, plastics and ceramics. There is no titanium metal industry in this country at present, although with our excellent resource base, low energy costs and skilled labour force, Australia represents a natural centre for titanium metal production.
