6th April: A 23-km integrated heavy-duty conveyor belt at Chalco Boffa project in Guinea is now fully online and operational, marking completion of the project.
Backed by total investment of USD 585 mln t in Phase I, Chalco’s Boffa project consists of 1.7 bln t of bauxite resources and has been designed with 12 mln t of mining capacity per annum. Bauxite produced will be first transported to the Fatala river port by a closed, elevated conveyor belt with a length of 23 km and will then be transported to the offshore transfer platform by river barge.
The majority of bauxite from the Chalco Boffa Phase I project will be shipped to China for use in Chalco refineries.
