Titan Fixes $1.55/lb Zinc Price for 30% of Forecasted Remaining 2023 Production
Vancouver, B.C., February 2, 2023 – Titan Mining Corporation (TSX: TI) (“Titan” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into a fixed zinc pricing arrangement for approximately 30% of the Company’s forecasted zinc production for the remainder of 2023. The arrangement is for an eleven-month period covering February 2023 to December 2023 at a price of $1.55 per pound of zinc.
Don Taylor, President and CEO, commented, “Fiscal Year 2022 was a record year for production at Titan’s Empire State Mine. With the recently announced production forecast of 54-58 million pounds of payable zinc for fiscal year 2023, the adoption of a quarterly cash dividend and our plans to develop the Sphaleros project, it was prudent to lock in a portion of Titan’s cashflow while maintaining significant exposure to upside movements in the zinc price. The forward sales will help ensure that we can deliver on our financial objectives for the year and reduce risk."
