Tri-Star is a 40% partner in the Oman Antimony Roaster Project (the “Roaster Project”), an antimony roaster with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes per annum of metal and a value-added downstream antimony trioxide (ATO) manufacturing facility in Oman, processing its own and third party concentrates.

Antimony is an important minor metal with a wide range of industrial uses most notably as an additive in its trioxide form in flame retardant compounds particularly for printed circuit boards, computers and other electronic products. China has dominated antimony production for the last century and accounts for approximately 90% of the world supplies for the past decade according to reports by the US Geological Survey.
Tri-Star has a highly experienced management team with capabilities in exploration geology, mining, mineral processing, minor metal marketing and sales and finance.
