Gunson Resources To Discuss Move Towards Mineral Sands Production In Perth At "Stars In 2012 Series"

Gunson Resources (ASX: GUN) is well placed to take advantage of strengthening mineral sands prices having entered the construction phase at its Coburn Zircon Project.


Supply shortages and rising demand for zircon and titanium dioxide raw materials have improved the financial attractiveness of the Coburn project.

Coburn is one of only a few advanced mineral sands projects in the world.

Gunson is de-risking the project through advanced negotiations with the world's fourth largest steel producer, POSCO, to purchase a large minority interest in the project, as well as an offtake agreement secured with the world's largest pigment producer, DuPont.


The event will be held on Wednesday 20th June, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Perth - 99 Adelaide Terrace from 5:15pm (for a 5:30pm start).

Light refreshments will be served during the event and following the presentations will be a Wine & Canape Reception allowing you to personally interact with presenting CEOs.

While the event is FREE to attend, registrations are essential.

EARLY BIRD DOOR PRIZE: If you arrive by 5:15pm and register for the event - you qualify for the Special Door Prize of a HD James Bond Spy Pen Digital Video Camera & Recorder.

LUCKY DOOR PRIZES: All attendees instantly go into the draw to win 1 of 3 lucky door prizes drawn on the night of a $100 STA Travel Voucher or a $100 Ticketek Voucher.
