Australian Bauxite (ABx) has advised that mining and screening operations are well advanced at its Bald Hill mine near Campbell Town northern Tasmania and trucking to port has commenced to assemble the next cargo of cement-grade bauxite to customer’s specifications.
ABx has remained focused during the COVID-19 pandemic response which had threatened its business because our bauxite customers were suffering setbacks.
The company are now proud to advise that during April-May 2020, ABx was able to secure sales contracts for fertiliser-grade bauxite and cement-grade bauxite that totalled more than $2.5 million.
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.
The contract for mining, processing and blending at the mine site was awarded to Hazell Bros contractors. ABx has contracted Dave Wagner & Son Pty Ltd for transporting the product to the Bell Bay port.
ABx concluded port agreements with TasPorts on Monday 15 June and has contracted with QUBE Ports at Bell Bay for the stevedoring services and stockpiling arrangements, in conjunction with TasPorts.
