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.
