  • China bets big on Guinea's bauxite - 08 Nov 09

    Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe China is proving an important trade partner for the west African nation of Guinea. While Guinea's military rulers are facing sanctions from the African Union and others in the international community, China's recently committed to a $7bn mining and oil exploration deal. Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege, reporting from the mining town of Sangaredi, says Chinese investment in bauxite mining - which accounts for 95 per cent of Guinea's total economy - has come to the aid of an industry threatened by EU sanctions. The sanctions include bans on travel and the freezing of assets held outside Guinea by the military leaders, who seized power in a coup after the death of Lansana Conte, the president, last December. They were imposed after tro...

At full production, the project would have generated about 7-point-5 billion dollars in revenue.

Boké is the capital city of Boké Prefecture within the Boké Region of Lower Guinea near the border with Guinea-Bissau. It is also a sub-prefecture of Guinea. Located along the Rio Nuñez which flows to its not-too-distant mouth on the Atlantic Ocean, Boké is a port. It is known for the Fortin de Boké museum, formerly a slave fort. The town is served by Boké Baralande Airport. As of 2014 the city and surrounding sub prefecture had a population of 61,449 people.[1]Riots have paralysed a major mining town in Guinea, with protesters destroying property, vehicles and equipment. People in Boke, north-west Guinea, say they can no longer tolerate power cuts and high levels of pollution. Operations at the bauxite mines have been disrupted and several rioters arrested. in Guinea says demosntrators tried to kidnap a senior general sent to help resolve the crisis. Bauxite, an aluminium ore, is the world's main source of aluminium. It consists mostly of the minerals gibbsite (Al(OH)3), boehmite (γ-AlO(OH)) and diaspore (α-AlO(OH)), mixed with the two iron oxides goethite and haematite, the clay mineral kaolinite and small amounts of anatase (TiO2) and ilmenite (FeTiO3 or FeO.TiO2).[1][2] In 1821 the French geologist Pierre Berthier discovered bauxite near the village of Les Baux in Provence, southern France.[3] In 1861, French chemist Henri Sainte-Claire Deville named the mineral "bauxite".[4] About a third of the world's bauxite reserves are in Guinea, but poverty remains high. Much of the world's aluminium comes from bauxite.Bauxite is usually strip mined because it is almost always found near the surface of the terrain, with little or no overburden. As of 2010, approximately 70% to 80% of the world's dry bauxite production is processed first into alumina and then into aluminium by electrolysis. Bauxite rocks are typically classified according to their intended commercial application: metallurgical, abrasive, cement, chemical, and refractory. Usually, bauxite ore is heated in a pressure vessel along with a sodium hydroxide solution at a temperature of 150 to 200 °C. At these temperatures, the aluminium is dissolved as sodium aluminate (the Bayer process). The aluminium compounds in the bauxite may be present as gibbsite(Al(OH)3), boehmite(AlOOH) or diaspore(AlOOH); the different forms of the aluminium component will dictate the extraction conditions. The undissolved waste, bauxite tailings, after the aluminium compounds are extracted contains iron oxides, silica, calcia, titania and some un-reacted alumina. After separation of the residue by filtering, pure gibbsite is precipitated when the liquid is cooled, and then seeded with fine-grained aluminium hydroxide. The gibbsite is usually converted into aluminium oxide, Al2O3, by heating in rotary kilns or fluid flash calciners to a temperature in excess of 1000oC. This aluminium oxide is dissolved at a temperature of about 960 °C (1,760 °F) in molten cryolite. Next, this molten substance can yield metallic aluminium by passing an electric current through it in the process of electrolysis, which is called the Hall–Héroult process, named after its American and French discoverers. Prior to the invention of this process in 1886, elemental aluminium was made by heating ore along with elemental sodium or potassium in a vacuum. The method was complicated and consumed materials that were themselves expensive at that time. This made early elemental aluminium more expensive than gold.[9] See also[edit]
