About Titanium Corporation Inc.
Titanium's CVW™ technology provides sustainable solutions to reduce the environmental footprint of the oil sands industry. The Company is working with Canadian Natural Resources Limited on front end engineering design for potential deployment of CVW™ at Canadian Natural's Horizon oil sands site. The Company's technology reduces the environmental impact of oil sands tailings while economically recovering valuable products that would otherwise be lost. CVW™ recovers bitumen, solvents and minerals from tailings, preventing these commodities from entering tailings ponds and the atmosphere; volatile organic compound and greenhouse gas emissions are materially reduced; hot tailings water is improved in quality for recycling; and residual tailings can be remediated more readily. A new minerals industry will be created commencing with the production and export of zircon, an essential ingredient in ceramics. The Company's shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "TIC". For more information, please visit the Company's website at www.titaniumcorporation.com.
