Western Australia accounts for 33 per cent of Australias alumina production. Uses. Alumina, or aluminium oxide, is extracted from bauxite to make aluminium metal that is widely used in the transport, packaging and electrical sectors. Aluminium metal is infinitely recyclable without any loss of quality and aluminium scrap is highly valued.
Jul 03, 2020 With about 350 operational mines, Australia produces 19 minerals including iron ore, bauxite (aluminium ore), lithium, lead, gold, diamond, zinc and uranium. Australia also produces significant amounts of black coal, nickel, manganese, silver, copper, antimony, cobalt and tin.
Bauxite is an aluminium ore found in deposits around the world. Once the ore is mined out of the ground, the red bauxite rock is crushed and dissolved into a white alumina powder, using what is known as the Bayer process. This alumina powder is then smelted into aluminium metal. Australia is the worlds largest producers of bauxite.
Bauxite. Bauxite ore is the primary raw material that is refined into alumina and later sent to our smelters where it is processed into aluminum. Consistent. Reliable. Sustainable. Our leading position in mining is built on our ability to meet customer-specific needs for high-quality, sustainably produced material.
Dec 31, 2016 Australian bauxite mines are known for their high quality ore which is determined not just by the aluminium content but also by associate minerals, such as iron oxides, anatase and, in particular, the amount of reactive silica (RxSiO 2).
The bauxite mines in the Darling Range have the worlds lowest grade bauxite ore mined on a commercial scale (around 27-30% Al 2 O 3). Despite the low grade, the mines accounted for 23% of global alumina production. JORC-compliant bauxite resources also occur in New South Wales and Tasmania but these are small (25 Mt).

Nov 13, 2018 Effects of mining - bauxite hydrology. Alcoa of Australia mines bauxite for the production of alumina from Western Australias Darling Range extending from east of Perth to Collie. These operations occur on Mineral Lease 1SA, granted by the State Government under the Alumina Refinery Agreement Act 1961. Mineral Lease 1SA currently covers 7,129 square kilometres, and
Oct 09, 2019 Just as Australian miners of other commodities are benefiting from the depreciation of the Australian dollar against the US dollar, the Australian dollar bauxite price for local miners is extremely robust. Over the last 10 years, Australian bauxite has generally fetched prices in a range between US$45 per tonne (CIF China) and US$55 per tonne.

Asian and Australian miners enjoy low shipping distances to China, but low freight rates and high-quality bauxite enabled Guinea to overtake Australia as the largest supplier in 2017. Although freight rates were expected to increase, those producers in Guinea able to ship using capesize vessels can offset the proximity advantage enjoyed by Australian miners who are generally restricted to Panamax
