White Mountain Appoints Professor Derek Fray as Titanium Metal Technologies Consultant
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- White Mountain Titanium Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: WMTM.OB) has entered into a six month renewable Consulting agreement with Professor Derek Fray of Cambridge University, U.K. Under the agreement, Derek Fray will report to Michael Kurtanjek, President & CEO, and will work closely with management to review competing technologies in the titanium metals sector which could have an impact on the further use for Cerro Blanco rutile concentrate, other than just its use as feedstock for paints and pigments. Professor Fray, who in 2001 became Head of Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, is best known within the Titanium metals industry as a founder of the FFC Cambridge process to recover titanium metal from molten salt electrolysis. He has published over 360 articles and one book on materials processing and is cited as the inventor on over 160 published patents. Twelve projects incorporating his materials processing concepts are now under active industrial development in the U.K., Europe, Australia and the United States. "I am delighted that Professor Fray is working with White Mountain," said Michael Kurtanjek, the Company's President and CEO. "He brings to the Company extensive experience in titanium metals technologies, and such knowledge will open up further possibilities for our Cerro Blanco project." About White Mountain Titanium Corporation The Company holds mining concessions on the Cerro Blanco property consisting of nine fully constituted exploitation mining concessions and twenty-four exploitation mining concessions in the process of being constituted, over approximately 7,483 hectares located approximately 39 kilometres west of the City of Vallenar in the Atacama, or Region III, geographic region of northern Chile. The Company's principal objectives are to advance the Cerro Blanco project towards a final engineering feasibility, and to secure off-take contracts for the planned rutile concentrate output. It would be the intention to sell the rutile concentrate to paint and pigment producers. Work also continues to investigate the commercial viability of producing a feldspar co-product. The feldspar could find applications in the glass and ceramics industries. The OTC BB has not reviewed or does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
