New Bauxite Facilities in Guinea



As the bauxite mining industry continues to grow, Budd's Guinea office reports on a few of the latest developments.




NEW CBG BERTH AT KAMSAR

The Compagnie des Bauxites de GuinĂ©e (CBG) has extended facilities in the port of Kamsar by creating a second mineral berth.  It is now possible for two vessels to load bauxite concomitantly.

BELAIR MINING (CAPE VERGA)

Another mining site has been established near Boffa, at Bel Air.

Loading operations in this area are always carried out offshore.  Vessels anchor at sea and motorized barges or barges with outboard motors carry the bauxite to the vessel for loading operations at anchorage.

For now, two 10,000 metric ton barges are operation, with two tug boats managed by SMT-SHIPPING.

COBAD

The Russians have recently inaugurated a mining site in the Boke district, with an offshore programme. They use the same Sangredi/Kamsar train line as CBG but with a deviation into their port entrance.

GAC

Guinea Alumina Corporation ( GAC) has recently inaugurated their much talked about bauxite shipping site at Kamsar, Prefecture of Boke. Their mining site is at Gangan but bauxite will be transported on wagons from the mining site of Gangan to Kamsar on the CBG train line but with a deviation into their site. Operations will commence soon.
