The project, which includes upgrades and construction of new facilities at Moma's mining and processing facilities, is set to increase current ilmenite production capacity by 50% to around 1.2 million t/annum, with associated increases in rutile and zircon production.

Based out of E+PC's office in Centurion, South Africa, the integrated team will execute all detail engineering, design and associated procurement, project management and project control activities.

On site construction in Mozambique will begin in the first quarter of 2011 and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

E+PC specialises in engineering, design and project delivery services, with extensive experience of managing multidisciplinary mineral projects.
