Conference call scheduled for 10:00am EST on Thursday, May 1, 2008



Toronto, Ontario....April 30, 2008...Titanium Corporation Inc. ("the Company") [TSX-V: TIC] announces that its quarterly financial statements for the three and six month period ended February 29, 2008 have been filed.

Since the Company's first quarter report, a number of significant operational milestones have been achieved:

  • Titanium Corporation was awarded a $3.5 million Energy Innovation Fund Grant from the Province of Alberta (see news releases dated March 28, 2008 and March 31, 2008). This significant funding and support from the Government is directed at the Company's research programs into the value-added opportunities and environmental benefits of recovering hydrocarbons and heavy minerals from oil sands tailings streams. Under the terms of the Grant, the Company has established an Advisory Committee comprised of individuals drawn from the research community, government agencies and industry.

  • The Company expanded its bitumen recovery research programs to include additional expert research firms in the United States. Detailed planning was completed for this new work, which is underway in the third quarter.

  • The Company completed its strategic business plan, which reviewed technical progress, outcomes, markets and business conditions. The plan confirmed the Company's enhanced focus on programs aimed at the integrated recovery of bitumen and minerals.


The Company has an Exclusivity Agreement with Syncrude Canada Ltd. which is scheduled to expire on May 16, 2008. In conducting the next phase of its research and development programs, the Company will be collaborating with independent research organizations, government agencies and the oil sands industry with a view to developing an industry-wide solution. Accordingly, the Company will not seek to renew the Exclusivity Agreement. The Company intends to continue testing of tailings and associated research programs in cooperation with its research partners and the industry.

Expenses incurred in the second quarter ($1,375,656) and in the first six months of fiscal 2008 ($2,334,112) increased, compared with the comparable 2007 periods ($1,107,369 and $1,987,719 respectively) due to increased professional fees and research and development expenses related to the Company's minerals and bitumen recovery programs.

The Company maintains a strong balance sheet with a cash position of $19 million at the end of the quarter.

The Company's unaudited financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.titaniumcorporation.com.
