Emirates Global Aluminium announced that its bauxite mining subsidiary Guinea Alumina Corporation has shipped one million tonnes of bauxite ore since exports began in August. GAC is currently ramping up production, which is expected to reach some 12 million tonnes per year. EGA CEO Abdulnasser Bin Kalban said “We are making good progress with our production ramp-up in Guinea, with mine, rail and port facilities all performing as planned. Many of our facilities are already running at design capacity, and the quality of bauxite we are producing for our customers is on target. Our priority throughout ramp-up and for the decades of production ahead is the safety of the 1,000 staff and contractors who work at GAC.”

EGA invested some USD 1.4 billion to develop GAC. EGA supplies GAC bauxite to third party customers, including in China and India.
