The mineral sources of titanium products are rutile and ilmenite. Concentrations of these minerals are made at a relatively small number of operations throughout the world. Texturally, the deposits may be sand or rock. Sand deposits are placer concentrations, almost always at or near the coast, in which rutile and ilmenite commonly, but not invariably, occur together. In rock deposits, ilmenite is the mineral of consequence and rutile is rarely found. This Bureau of Mines report presents comprehensive data for titanium including industry structure, uses, reserves-resources, technology, supply-demand relationships, byproducts and coproducts, strategic considerations, economic factors and problems, operating factors and problems, and outlook to the year 2000.
