Citing the potential game-changing nature of the novel CTL process, both Genivar and Argex have agreed to mutual terms of exclusivity for engineering services related to the development and construction of TiO2 processing plant projects using this patented process.
Argex has also appointed Aecom, a global provider of professional and industrial services, to conduct an environmental study for Argex and to accompany it in obtaining the required environmental permits.
The studies follow positive results from a TiO2 grade sensitivity study conducted earlier this year, which indicated improved project economics using commercially available sulfate grade ilmenite feedstock, and a recent milestone breakthrough regarding significant improvements in the Argex CTL hydrometallurgical process.
“The hiring of GENIVAR to complete the feasibility study for the future Argex TiO2 industrial facility is an important step towards launching commercial production of our TiO2 product. The preliminary work already completed by Argex’s COO, Enrico Di Cesare will expedite the completion of the study,” said Roy Bonnell, President and Chief Executive Officer of Argex. “Upon completion of the study, we will be in a position to evaluate major partnership opportunities, and engage in detailed construction engineering work and start hiring suppliers.”
“It is our intention to commence the operation of the first module using commercially available feedstock as our sensitivity analysis news-released in June demonstrated strongly improved economics of the project and faster time to market. Our wholly-owned properties remain a low-risk option for future expansion, an alternative to commercial feedstock price increase or non-availability due to feedstock market conditions.”
Argex currently operates a pilot plant in Mississauga, Ontario, where its CTL process runs continuously. Additionally, Argex reports that it has issued a total of 750,000 stock options today, October 11, 2012.
Employees were granted 350,000 stock options while the 400,000 balance was granted to consultants.
These incentive stock options are exercisable at $1.10 with an expiry date of October 11, 2017 and have an 18-month vesting period.
GENIVAR, through its combination with WSP, is one of the world's leading professional services firms, working with governments, businesses, architects and planners and providing integrated solutions across many disciplines.
Argex Titanium Inc. is a near-term producer of Titanium Dioxide. With a primarygoal of advancing rapidly towards production, Argex has adopted a simple and low-risk strategy for the scale-up of its proprietary process that allows it to produce high-purity TiO2 directly from run-of-mine material.
