Bauxite mining commences at new Vietnam project

Nearly four years after the mining project received approval, work has commenced at the Lam Dong Bauxite-Alumina Complex in Bao Lam district, in the Central Highland province of Lam Dong, Vietnam.

The project, conducted by the Ha Tu Coal Joint Stock Company under the Vietnam Coal and Mineral Industries Group (Vinacomin), will supply bauxite ore for aluminium processing at the complex, which is scheduled to start later this year.
