The titanium in the titaniferous magnetite under study, as well as most other titaniferous iron ores, is so intimately associated with the iron that liberation cannot be achieved by mechanical means.
It is obvious from the preliminary investigations that some chemical means must be utilized from efficient extraction of the titanium. Two possible pyrometallurgical methods for this extraction are either soda sintering or direct smelting.
