White Mountain Appoints Dr. Antonio Luraschi As Project Manager For The Cerro Blanco Titanium Project In Chile

SANTIAGO, Chile, July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- White Mountain Titanium Corporation ("White Mountain" or the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: WMTM) reports that, as part of its on-going commitment to take the Cerro Blanco project to final feasibility, it has appointed Dr. Antonio Luraschi as Project Manager, effective August 1, 2011.  Reporting to the President of White Mountain, Dr. Luraschi will be responsible for over-seeing all disciplines necessary to take the project to the final feasibility stage.  

Dr. Luraschi obtained degrees in Metallurgical and Chemical Engineering from the University of Concepcion, Chile in 1970, and a Ph.D. in Metallurgy from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1976.  A fluent speaker of Spanish and English, Dr. Luraschi also has a working knowledge of French and Italian.

Most recently, Dr. Luraschi was employed by AMEC International Ltd. in Chile as Metallurgical Consulting Manager. Previously he was a partner with CADE-IDEPE (a Chilean engineering firm acquired by AMEC in 2007) where he was responsible for the metallurgical process aspects of numerous mining projects, including projects for such companies as Anglo American, Codelco and Xstrata.  

Over his career, Dr. Luraschi has developed more than sixty applied research and development project engineering solutions. These solutions fall within the fields of copper pyrometallurgy and electrometallurgy as well as extractive metallurgy of gold and silver and specialty metals such as molybdenum, titanium, vanadium and germanium.

Commenting on the appointment, Mike Kurtanjek, the Company's President and CEO said, "I am delighted that Antonio has agreed to join the White Mountain team.  He brings a wealth of appropriate experience and expertise to the Cerro Blanco project, having already been involved in the project since 2007. His participation and contribution to the preliminary engineering assessment and the pilot plant test work at SGS in Canada means that he is well versed in the requirements to over-see taking the Cerro Blanco project to final feasibility."
