Argex signs TiO2 distribution agreement for Quebec plant

Argex Titanium Inc. announced that it has signed a letter of intent (“LOI”) with one of the world’s largest chemical distribution companies to distribute up to 25,000 tonnes per year of Argex TiO2 to be produced at Argex’s proposed production facility in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec.

The intent of this LOI is to act as a guideline for the negotiation of a definitive marketing and off-take agreement between the parties. Argex intends to share more details as to the counter-party and details of the definitive agreements once negotiations are finalized.

“The successful completion of a definitive marketing and off-take agreement of this scale means that now a significant majority of all available TiO2 product from our initial industrial module will already be spoken for well in advance of actual production for many years to come,” noted Philippe Guillemaille, Head of Sales and Marketing for Argex.

The initial industrial module will have a capacity of 50,000 tonnes per year of TiO2 pigment production. However, it is expected that additional modules will be added at the current location where they would benefit from capital investment in infrastructure already absorbed by the first module or constructed at other locations, following the successful commissioning of the first industrial module.

The main product will be coated and uncoated TiO2 pigment mainly used for architectural paint, plastic and cosmetics applications. Commercial by-products of significant value will be generated during the processing of the feedstock which consequently minimizes costs associated with waste treatment and disposal.

About Argex Titanium Inc.

ARGEX Titanium Inc. is a near-term producer of Titanium Dioxide (TiO2). With a primary goal 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 pigment-grade TiO2 directly from run-of-mine material. The closed-loop process is environmentally friendly and produces minimal inert tailings.
