With a simple flow sheet incorporating mining, hauling, screening, barging and transhipping into large ocean-going vessels approx. 10 nautical miles offshore with a capacity of approx. 4 Million tonnes (Mt) per annum with an expansion underway to 7 Mt per annum in 2024.
The Mine has a JORC Reserve of 89.5 Mt and a total JORC Resource of 124.5 Mt and has been operating since April 2018. Bauxite ore from the Bauxite Hills Mine is shipped overseas to customers where it is refined to meet the growing demand for alumina and aluminium.
Aluminium is an essential metal to everyday life, and crucial for the transition of energy and transportation towards a lower carbon future. Modern life could not exist without aluminium in our buildings, cars, trains, planes, phones, food containers, cooking utensils, electricity infrastructure, televisions and household appliances. Further, aluminium is one of the most important materials underpinning renewable energy generation in solar panels, wind turbines and transmission wires and also in the bodies and batteries of electric vehicles.
