    Australian Bauxite Limited announced that they would ship about 30,000 tonnes of Tasmanian bauxite from the Bell Bay port around March 1. The cement grade bauxite will be from Australian Bauxite’s Bald Hill mine, near Campbell Town.

    The negotiations with the customer took three months as Australian Bauxite offered new products to the customers and they worked with the consumers to achieve the “optimum product specifications”. The process took longer time than usual.

    “We provided samples from a suite of possible products, all prepared at our laboratory, supervised by operations manager Nathan Towns …,” the company statement said.

    The company had started contract negotiations for mining, processing and blending at the mine site. The company was also expected to resume the sales of fertiliser grade bauxite in the last week of January.

    “Bauxite granules reduce dust losses and improve the spreading performance of the fertiliser,” it said.

    The company also updated that its subsidiary ALCORE is working on its core laboratory at a research centre at Berkeley Vale, New South Wales ahead of schedule. The laboratory is certified to produce aluminium fluoride samples for four customers early in 2019.

    ALCORE has a technology designed to refine raw bauxite to produce aluminium fluoride, a key raw material used in aluminium smelting along with other “valuable co-products”. Due to the growing demand from aluminium smelters and the increasing use of aluminium fluoride in lithium ion batteries, global demand for aluminium fluoride and co-products would continue to grow.  That is one of the key reasons; Australian Bauxite is diversifying its product range to cater to the growing demand.
