Why Titanium?

Titanium is on the list of the 35 minerals considered critical to the economic and national security of the United States as first published by the U.S. Department of the Interior on May 18, 2018. Titanium can withstand high temperatures and its non-magnetic nature prevents interference with data storage components. It has widespread use in high-technology and aerospace applications.

Our Titanium Properties are situated within the São Francisco Basin. Igneous activity influenced the percolation of fluids into sediments generating the basic to ultrabasic complexes of the Mata da Corda Group host in the rocks of the Bambuí Group in the São Francisco Basin. It is the rocks of this igneous complex (Mata da Corda Group) that host ilmenite (FeTiO3) mineralization and form titanium deposits.
