In 2010, the company’s dividend reinvestment plan was dismissed. However, a new dividend plan has been established for effective payment of the 2017 final dividend.

The West Australian reported that managing director Tom O’Leary is pleased to report higher revenues, as well as strong performance from their Sierra Rutile operations throughout the year, he stated:

This has been accompanied by the successful restart of the company’s major zircon mine, Jacinth-Ambrosia, and the finalisation of off-take agreements supporting the approval of the Cataby development. Delivery at Sierra Rutile, Jacinth-Ambrosia and Cataby is Iluka’s core focus for 2018.

Iluka will continue to prompt sales growth as their 2017 sales volume grew 12% from 2016.
