Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Australia is the world's largest producer of bauxite, accounting for about one-third of global output. Bauxite production in Australia is estimated to reach 82.0 million tonnes in 2014-15, up from 67.8 million tonnes in 2009-10. Over this period, expansion projects at bauxite mines have increased mine output. Most bauxite mined in Australia is locally processed into alumina, with over one-third of industry revenue projected to be derived from exports in 2014-15. Bauxite imports are negligible.

There are just four companies in the industry, operating a total of six mines. Of these, three are major companies and one is small. These three firms – Rio Tinto, Alcoa and BHP Billiton – also use a high proportion of bauxite for their own alumina-refining operations... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

The Bauxite Mining industry produces only bauxite, the bulk of which is processed into alumina by local manufacturers. Bauxite mined in Australia is classified as either high grade or low grade.

High-grade bauxite

The bauxite resources at Weipa, QLD, and Gove, NT, are among the world's highest grade deposits, with average grades of between 49.0% and 53.0% alumina, according to Geoscience Australia. This high-grade bauxite is estimated to account for 55.8% of industry revenue in 2014-15 (and 42.1% of volumes), up from 52.6% in 2009-10 (37.5% of volumes) due to volume increases and greater pricing increases for high-grade bauxite compared with low-grade bauxite over this period... purchase to read more
