Glencore is assessing the feasibility of developing a new bauxite mine near Aurukun on the west coast of Cape York in Far North Queensland.
The project is being undertaken as an unincorporated joint venture with MDP Bauxite Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Development Pty Ltd.
The bauxite resource is located on the traditional lands of the Wik Waya People and we recognise that the direct participation of Traditional Owners and the community is vital to any future success.
The proposed mine plan for the resource seeks to produce up to eight million dry tonnes of washed and screened bauxite over a life of more than 20 years.
