:: SA Firms Set to Benefit from Mozambique Titanium Project

The construction contract for Kenmare Resources' Moma titanium mineral-mine in Mozambique is likely to be awarded to a South African company, Bateman Minerals.

Bateman was, together with Australian firm Multiplex, recently appointed as the joint project contractor for the $220-million titanium mineral sands development.

Physical construction of the Moma project is scheduled to start either at the end of the year or the beginning of 2005, which means that the various contracts for the project will be put out to tender by September.

The Moma project will be a greenfields development, which will include the installation of a floating concentrator plant, a dry-separation plant, a roaster, two dredges, a barge (to be used to move the material onto bigger ships for export), an electrical generation and transmission facility, an accommodation village and related infrastructure, such as access roads.

Du Plessis says the main process plant will be sourced from a former BHP Billiton plant in Western Australia. Similarly, the dry-separation plant is also an existing plant that will require refurbishment. This work will be undertaken by Roche MT, a specialist equipment supplier in the mineral-sands field.
