Australia: Australian Bauxite has completed its first 5560t shipment of cement-grade bauxite from Bell Bay Port in Tasmania. The shipment is the first from Australian Bauxite’s Bald Hill mine, the first new bauxite project in Australia for more than 35 years. The unnamed customer is preparing for a second shipment of 30,000 – 40,000t to be completed by the end of June 2016. The sales mark a change of direction by Australian Bauxite away from alumina refineries towards specialist cements and fertilisers.
