About Argex Titanium Inc.
ARGEX TITANIUM INC. is a near-term producer of Titanium Dioxide. 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 TiO2 directly from run-of-mine material.
The process is running continuously at the mini-plant in Mississauga,
Ontario. The closed-loop process is environmentally friendly and
produces minimal inert tailings.
Additionally, the Corporation owns 100% of the Mouchalagane property,
which is a large Labrador trough iron ore property that represents
further potential upside for the Argex shareholders.
