Kenmare operates the Moma Titanium Minerals Mine, located on the north east coast of Mozambique. The Moma Mine contains deposits of heavy minerals which include the titanium minerals ilmenite and rutile, as well as the zirconium silicate mineral, zircon. Ilmenite and rutile are used in the manufacture of titanium dioxide pigment and titanium metal.
It is divided into lower, middle, and upper zones, in which the typical minerals are ilmenomagnetite, ilmenite, and apatite, respectively. The middle zone contains a 2-km-long ilmenite ore body that grades between 8 and 48% ilmenite. Ilmenite and magnetite occur mainly as discrete grains in the middle zone and in the upper zone.

The world's largest open cast ilmenite mine is the Tellnes mine located in Sokndal, Norway and run by Titania AS (owned by Kronos Worldwide Inc.), a hard rock ilmenite mine, which produces most of Norway's 380,000t of ilmenite production. In Karhujupukka located in Kolari, northern Finland there is a magnetite-ilmenite ore at around 5 million tons.
The Tellnes mine is one of the largest titanium mines in Europe. The mine is located about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) northeast of the Jøssingfjorden in Sokndal municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. The mine has reserves amounting more than 300,000,000 tonnes (300,000,000 long tons; 330,000,000 short tons) of ore grading 18% titanium. 
Founded in 2011, the company TiZir has two sites: Grande Côte Operations in Senegal, which produces mineral sands, primarily ilmenite and zircon; and TiZir Titanium and Iron (TTI) in Norway, which produces titanium dioxide slag and high-purity pig iron from Senegalese ilmenite.

Ilmenite was used in drilling operations in the North Sea in 1979 and 1980. The ilmenite was a fairly coarse ground material compared to the presently used ilmenite. The drilling fluid properties were easier to control compared to drilling with barite. Again, this was because ilmenite has a lower tendency of being ground down to finer particles.
