Austpac Resources (APG) is an exploration company that has developed a mineral processing technology to upgrade ilmenite (a titanium mineral) to synthetic rutile, a prime input for manufacturing titanium dioxide pigment. APG has agreements with ilmenite explorers in Australia to provide mineral processing services. It is seeking similar agreements in India. APG also has a tenement in the Murray basin, Victoria, where it is searching primarily for ilmenite, gold, copper and zircon.

APG has been processing ilmenite for over 15 years and has developed a number of proprietary technologies, including the ERMS and EARS processes. Austpac has also developed the LTR Process for low-temperature roasting of both fresh and weathered ilmenites. The processes that APG has developed have direct application to the mineral sands, the titanium dioxide and other industries.

Austpac’s key technology transforms ilmenite into high grade synthetic rutile (synrutile), an important feedstock for titanium dioxide pigment production and a preferred feedstock for titanium sponge, an intermediate step in the production of titanium metal. The technology can also be used to process waste chloride solutions and iron oxides produced by steel making to recover hydrochloric acid and saleable iron metal pellets. A third process can be used to produce Austpac Direct Reduced Iron from both hematite and magnetite iron ores.
