Tronox Limited, together with its subsidiaries, is engaged in the production and marketing of titanium bearing mineral sands and titanium dioxide pigment (TiO2). The company has operations in North America, Europe, South Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region. Segments The company’s segments include Mineral Sands and Pigment. Mineral Sands segment This segment includes the exploration, mining, and beneficiation of mineral sands deposits. This segment also comprises: The company’s KwaZulu-Natal Sands operations in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, which consist of the Hillendale mine (which ceased mining operations in 2013); the Fairbreeze mine (which was partially permitted as of December 31, 2013 and the production from which would replace the Hillendale mine once it enters into commercial production); a concentration plant; a mineral separation plant; and two smelters. The company’s Namakwa Sands operations in the Western Cape province of South Africa, which consist of the Namakwa Sands mines, a primary concentration plant (which produces a mineral concentrate), a secondary concentration plant (which yields a magnetic and non-magnetic stream), a mineral separation plant, and two smelters. The company’s Western Australia operations, which consist of the Cooljarloo Sands mine and the Chandala processing plant, which includes a dry mill, a synthetic rutile plant, and a mineral separation plant. The company’s mineral sands operations have a combined annual production capacity of 753,000 metric tons of titanium feedstock and 265,000 metric tons of zircon. Products ‘Mineral sands’ refers to concentrations of heavy minerals in an alluvial environment (sandy or sedimentary deposits near a sea, river, or other water source). Titanium Feedstock Titanium feedstock is considered to be a single product. Ilmenite: Ilmenite is the abundant titanium mineral. Rutile: Rutile includes crystalline titanium and in its pure state, would contain close to 100% titanium. Leucoxene: Leucoxene is a natural alteration of ilmenite with a titanium content ranging from approximately 65% to approximately 90%. Titanium Slag: The production of titanium slag involves smelting ilmenite in an electric arc furnace under reducing conditions, normally with anthracite (coal) used as a reducing agent. Synthetic Rutile: Various processes have been developed for the beneficiation of ilmenite into products containing between approximately 90% and 95% titanium. These products are known as synthetic rutile or upgraded ilmenite. Co-products Zircon: Zircon is found in the mineral sands deposits containing ilmenite. It is extracted, alongside ilmenite and rutile, as part of the initial mineral sands beneficiation process. Zircon is a mineral, which is primarily used as an additive in ceramic glazes to add hardness, which makes the ceramic glaze more water, chemical, and abrasion resistant. It is also used for the production of zirconium and zirconium chemicals, in refractories, as a molding sand in foundries, and for TV screen glass, where it is noted for its structural stability at high temperatures and resistance to abrasive and corrosive conditions. High Purity Pig Iron: The process by which ilmenite is converted into titanium slag results in the production of high purity pig iron containing low levels of manganese. The pig iron produced as a co-product of titanium slag production is known as nodular pig iron, ductile pig iron, low manganese pig iron, or high purity pig iron. Sales and Marketing The company uses agents and distributors for some sales in the Asia-Pacific region. Pigment segment This segment primarily produces and markets TiO2, and has production facilities at various locations, such as Hamilton, Mississippi; Botlek, the Netherlands; and Kwinana, Western Australia, representing an aggregate of 465,000 metric tons of annual TiO2 production capacity. TiO2 is a component of everyday consumer applications due to its brightness and ability to cover or mask other materials relative to alternative white pigments and extenders. TiO2 is used in a range of products due to its abil
