Australian Bauxite Limited has produced its next cargo of 35,000 tonnes of cement grade bauxite from its Bald Hill mine near Campbell Town northern Tasmania ahead of schedule. Trucking to port will be completed in the next few days and ship-loading commences on 8 August. ABx is well known for producing bauxite to customers’ specifications for both cement and fertiliser manufacture. ABx and its customers have been able to press ahead during the COVID-19 pandemic and ABx was able to secure sales contracts for fertiliser-grade bauxite and cement-grade bauxite that totalled more than $2.5 million.

This project was accelerated so as to use the transport and port infrastructure during a period of under-utilisation, to benefit from low fuel prices and to allow the cement-grade customer to take advantage of shipping opportunities. The strategy has worked well for all concerned.

ABx has long-standing relationships with experienced contractors that are well known for meeting the strict specification targets and complying with community and landholder requirements.

Mining, processing and blending at the mine site was done by Hazell Bros contractors and transporting to Bell Bay port was by Dave Wagner & Son Pty Ltd.

ABx has port agreements with TasPorts and has contracted with QUBE Ports at Bell Bay for the stevedoring services and stockpiling arrangements. Monson Shipping have provided Shipping Agents services and Briar Maritime have provided independent ship surveys to date.
