Report summary

Mining is carried out at two locations on the Weipa Peninsular and at Andoom/Ely, about 15km from Weipa. The mine produces a mix of trihydrate and mono hydrate, and washes and screens bauxite to obtain desired grade before shipment around the coast to the Queensland based refineries, Yarwun and Gladstone, or overseas (mainly to China).
