Australia Home to Chinese Bauxite Mining
Chinese aluminum producer Aluminum Corp of China has been granted significant project status for its proposed A$3bn bauxite mine and refinery in Australia.
The Aurukun site, on the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, will be coordinated by the state government.
Chinese demand for Bauxite - which is refined into alumina to make aluminum – is increasing. The project will enable the company known as Chalco to ship more bauxite ore to China each year.
The project is expected to create 2,300 jobs over three years and more than 600 permanent jobs in regional Queensland, according to Australian reports.
Chalco produces approximately 9 million tons of alumina products (including alumina, alumina hydrate and alumina chemicals), making it the second-largest producer in the world.
