General description

For the first time in Guinea, DTP Mining is mining bauxite - an ore used for the production of aluminium - on behalf of Guinea Alumina Corporation (GAC). The method used is different from the one used in gold mines. It involves “bulk mining”, with daily targets of 60,000 metric tons of material (waste rock and bauxite) extracted from the various pits and the crushing and loading onto trains of 40,000 metric tons of bauxite.
