We mine bauxite in the South West of Australia and transport it on an overland conveyor belt to a refinery where the bauxite is turned into white alumina powder. The alumina is then exported to smelters around the world. 

As part of the Worsley Alumina operations, bauxite is mined near the town of Boddington, 130 kilometres (kms) south east of Perth. It is then transported on the largest overland conveyor belt in the southern hemisphere, for more than 50 kms, to a refinery near the town of Collie, where a 100-year-old process is used to turn the red bauxite rock into white alumina powder.

 

A Rich History

Interest in bauxite mining in the South West of Australia stretches back to the 1960s. However, mining and refining the ore didn’t get underway until the 1980s. At the time, building the mine, conveyor belt and processing plant was Australia’s most expensive capital project, costing AUD$1.2 billion and employing 3500 people. Over the past three decades our production has increased four-fold, making Worsley Alumina one of the largest and lowest-cost alumina producers in the world.
