Sovereign Metals Limited (ASX:SVM & AIM:SVML) is an ASX and AIM-listed company focused on the exploration and development of its Kasiya rutile project in Malawi.
The Company recently completed an Expanded Scoping Study which confirmed Kasiya as a large-scale, long-life operation with a low-cost profile as a significant source of critical raw materials. Kasiya has the potential to become a major producer of both the natural rutile and graphite markets whilst contributing significantly to the economy of Malawi.
Natural rutile is the purest, highest-grade natural form of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and is the preferred feedstock in manufacturing titanium pigment and producing titanium metal.
The natural rutile market is in structural deficit with current supply estimated to decline rapidly by 45% in the next three years, following the scheduled closures by two major high-grade producers. A resurgence in demand for titanium pigment and from the welding sector combined with concurrent supply shortages has led the CIF China spot prices sharply upwards to over US$2,200 per tonne.
