In early September, the first batch of rough uhligite minerals mined in the southern African country of Mozambique, weighing 2,016tons, arrived at Haikou port.

In order to expand the overseas mineral resources market, the Hainan Geological Bureau invested 191 million yuan into starting a Ti-Zr sand mineral mining and sieving project in Mozambique early last year.

The mine construction in Mozambique was completed and successfully put into production on August 1st 2012, producing a total of 65,000 tons of rough uhligite minerals by this August.

In addition, the Hainan Uhligite ore dressing plant was recently completed and put into production, having been designed to produce 200,000 tons of ilmenite concentrates and 30,000 tons of zircon concentrates each year, and 20,000 tons of rough uhligite minerals and 60,000 tons of uhligite concentrates expected to be transported to Hainan this year.

So far, Hainan has started to explore and extract mineral resources in five African countries including Mozambique, Madagascar, Congo, Malawi and Tanzania.
