I-Minerals Inc. is in the process of developing a suite of high-value mineral products from a deposit called the Bovill Kaolin Project. The deposit is located in Bovill, Idaho, a small town that sits at the junction of Idaho State Highways 3 and 8 in the northern part of the state, 2,000 miles west and north of the Tennessee clay fields and 5,000 miles west of the Spanish K-spar mines.
Automotive exhaust purification systems were developed in the early 1970s in response to smog in the Los Angeles basin, legislation in California, and the 1970 U.S. Clean Air Act Amendments, where the latter set specific goals for reduction of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide emissions by the mid-1970s.
According to a recent report by Transparency Market Research, the global kaolin market is estimated to grow from $4.06 billion in 2012 to $5.34 billion in 2019, registering a 4.0% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the forecast period.
