BMT set to supervise Toliara Sands Project investigations

BMT JFA Consultants has been commissioned by World Titanium Resources (WTR) to provide project management services and to supervise site investigations for the Toliara Sands Project in Madagascar.

WTR proposes to mine and export 407,000 tonnes per annum of ilmenite and 44,000 tonnes of zircon-rich concentrate from the Ranobe Mine to a new port site near Toliara.

To date, BMT has completed a port options study, a pre-feasibility study for the marine works and concept engineering design of the marine structures.

The site investigation results will help to improve accuracy in capital cost estimates and will enable BMT to progress the basic engineering design and preparation of tender documentation.
