Australian Bauxite commenced production in December 2014 and has made sales from the site at Bald Hill, Tasmania, to the cement and fertiliser industries.

This is the first new bauxite project in Australia in more than 35 years. In addition, we have received a letter of intent for a significant shipment of cement grade bauxite. Delivery arrangements are currently being discussed with our customer. Shipment is expected to be early in the fourth quarter but may be expedited to meet customer’s requirements.

The performance of ABx cement-grade bauxite through the kilns and resulting cement products have been exemplary. As stated by one of our highly valued customers “ABx bauxite is the best favour you can do for yourself and your cement plant”.

Australian Bauxite produces cement-grade bauxite for the manufacture of certified high-specification cement, fertiliser-grade bauxite for the fertiliser industry and is primed with high grade metallurgical-grade bauxite for the aluminium industry.

Apart from Tasmania, Australian Bauxite also has viable tenements across Queensland and New South Wales, with the Binjour tenement in Queensland viewed as the potential flagship of the company. Our marketing partner, Rawmin Mining and Industries Pvt. Ltd commenced a review in late May of ABx's bauxite resources around Binjour totalling 28 million tonnes and has advised that it wishes to move to the next stage of assessment. The assessments include a long-term Mining Lease at Toondoon, which has an Inferred Resource of 3.5 million tonnes of bauxite, with potential for extensions into the surrounding ground. Production from this mining lease may commence as a precursor for the larger Binjour Project during its approval processes.

ABx has been engaged in product development for some time, working on the TasTech innovation, which produces a spectrum of grades and handling characteristics, along with increased yields at low cost. It is likely that in 2018, multi-product shipments will be possible to different customers, each having different quality requirements.

Why are we different?  We are an innovative, cohesive and highly skilled team who have collectively developed an exploration model which identifies targets and achieve results.

Consisting of strongly experienced senior management and disciplined geologists, the team has developed a unique geological model which has identified exploration targets that enables the company to maximise shareholder value for each exploration dollar spent.

Australian Bauxite (ABx) is adding value to shareholders through the discovery of high grade direct shipping bauxite in Eastern Australia, close to transport infrastructure and free of Native Title.

Our Vision: We will become the most valued and respected supplier of high grade bauxite through industry leading performance.

ABx has a pipeline for  development of bauxite deposits in Tasmania, Queensland and New South Wales. Combined JORC resources currently stand at 124 million tonnes and are expected to increase significantly with further exploration.  In total, ABx has 22 tenements covering over 1,975 sq km and controls the most prospective acreage for high quality bauxite along Eastern Australia.
