This paper discusses Bureau of Mines laboratory studies on four different research efforts to recover titanium from ilmenite. Also included is an order-of-magnitude cost comparison for three of the methods as compared with conventional rutile processing. Estimated operating costs are presented for direct ilmenite chlorination, synthetic rutile, and borate smelting processes.
