The agreement between Eramet and INEOS includes a long-term supply contract for ilmenite produced by Grande Côte Opérations, a subsidiary of the Eramet group, which operates the mineral sands mine in Senegal.
The acquisition completed on 21 September 2023, following the satisfaction of regulatory approvals.
