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.
