HOUSTON (ICIS)--Several appeals have been dismissed against the environmental authorisation of Tronox's Fairbreeze mine in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, a development that should bring the project closer to fruition, the US-based titanium dioxide (TiO2) producer said on Thursday.

Early-phase construction activities are proceeding according to plan, Tronox said. The decision confirms that the company can continue with construction activities.

The Fairbreeze will produce TiO2 ore and zircon.

Tronox received the authorisation in July 2012, the company said. The dismissals bring Tronox closer to receiving all of the required authorisations to build and operate Fairbreeze.
