The first phase of the project will be an annual output of 12 million tons of bauxite, which will increase the company's mine self-recovery rate to 75%. Chinalco said that the project is a major cooperation for mutual benefit and win-win cooperation under the framework of cooperation between the two governments. It has opened a new chapter for China-Shenzhen cooperation. According to reports, in recent years, China Aluminum has continuously investigated and explored and determined the Boffa mine in the northeastern part of Bofa City, Bofa Province, Guinea. The mine has a resource reserve of about 1.75 billion tons and a sustainable mining period of more than 60 years. After it is completed and put into production, it will become an important source of overseas aluminum bauxite resources of China Aluminum, and continuously improve the company's mineral resources protection and sustainable development capabilities.
