Complete results are listed in the Appendix and averaged in Table 1 as follows: It is very exciting to discover the southern half of the large Binjour plateau with bauxite lying right at surface.
Ausenco was commissioned to conduct a concept study that considered an alternative approach to the transportation of the product to the port facility using a long-distance slurry pipeline, and to compare this approach with a more traditional rail transport method. From the bauxite process plant, the bauxite pipeline would transport the concentrate to the terminal and river port facilities located approximately km away.
The pipeline system would comprise a buried inch API5L-X42 bare steel pipe with a single pump station located near the process plant.
The pipeline, including two intermediate valve stations, would be operated from the process plant main control room via a fibre optic communication system along the entire length of the pipeline. At the pipeline terminal, the bauxite concentrate reports to de-sliming cyclones where approximately 4.
The de-slimed concentrate reports to a bank of three belt filters and is dewatered to a moisture limit suitable for safe shipping. Scope The scope of work included the following key elements for the slurry pipeline transport option: A holistic approach for cost-effective processing The cost-effective processing, transport and shipping of fine bauxite using a long-distance slurry pipeline transport infrastructure would be a world first.
The proposed concept plant-to-ship infrastructure is deemed technically feasible.
Value to the project and enhancement of capital and operation cost confidence level can be achieved from progressing engineering definition in the following areas: The client is currently comparing the technical and commercial feasibility options available before determining the next steps.Koumbia Bauxite Definitive Feasibility Study Alliance Mining Commodities Limited is developing its flagship project, the Koumbia Bauxite Project, in the West African country of Guinea, about kilometers northwest of Conakry, the country’s capital.
Bauxite: Bauxite, rock largely composed of a mixture of hydrous aluminum oxides. Bauxite is the principal ore of aluminum. Bauxites vary physically according to the origin and geologic history of their deposits: some deposits are soft, easily crushed, and structureless; some are hard, dense, and pisolitic.
Koumbia Bauxite. The Koumbia Bauxite Project is located in the Gaoaul Prefecture in the north west of Guinea in West Africa, approximately km north of the capital Conakry, in one of the world’s premier bauxite producing regions.
Bonasika is a Bauxite Project (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) in Guyana owned by First Bauxite. General: The Bonasika project is located 70 km to the southwest of the capital city of Georgetown, Guyana, between the Essequibo and the Demerara rivers.
The project is still at an early stage but we recognise that the direct involvement of traditional owners and community members is vital to any future success.
About the resource The Aurukun bauxite resource is located in western Cape York, to the east of Aurukun, within a designated "restricted area" that comprises 11 deposits over an area. Queensland Bauxite Limited (ASX:QBL) is focused on defining and developing significant resources of bauxite and holds in excess of kilometres of bauxite.
