Namakwa Sands Smelter

Jul 24, 2017

Ilmenite, natural rutile, and zircon are transported to the Smelter by rail from an open-pit mine and concentration plant in Brand-se-Baai. The ilmenite is processed in furnaces to produce saleable titanium dioxide slag and pig iron, while the zircon and natural rutile are stored on-site for export. Final products are dispatched globally to either Tronox’s pigment operations or third-party customers either in bulk, bags, or containers via the port of Saldanha – 150 kilometers north of Cape Town. Namakwa Sands products also support other South African industries.
