Commissioning work to test the operational aspects of the new mine has begun, with start-up expected later this year. The expansion of its mining operations will allow Chemours – according to the company the only US producer of titanium and zirconium minerals and one of only two US producers of rare earth minerals – to have additional access to concentrated deposits. of high quality used to produce titanium dioxide (TiO2).

“Domestic Mineral Supply”

“Commissioning our new Trail Ridge South mine is more than an operational milestone – it represents a huge win for our customers, the community and our country,” said Jody Sciance, co-manager of mineral operations for Chemours. “This secure domestic mineral supply means more tons of TiO2 for our pigment customers, more jobs for Clay County residents, and access to critical materials identified by the U.S. Department of the Interior as vital to our nation’s security and economic prosperity – all with minimal impact on our local environment. We are extremely proud to expand our footprint in Florida and look forward to partnering with this community for years to come.

As Chemours points out, the facility will include Mobile Mining Units (MMUs) intended to address environmental concerns associated with traditional dredge mining. According to the company, the MMUs enable the site to have much lower emissions, reduced dust levels and improved safety by eliminating conventional haul trucks. Additionally, the Trail Ridge South plant will recycle 98% of its water used in the manufacturing process.
