The bauxite resources of Guyana are still being mapped and the ore mining potentials are still to some extent not fully known. What has changed is that the bauxite industry has drastically declined from what it was. I can hardly write about bauxite and Linden and skip over some significant events that occurred with the bauxite Industry and Guyana.
Two to three tonnes of bauxite are required to produce one tonne of alumina. 90% of the global alumina supply of around 90 million tonnes is used in aluminium production. Alumina refineries tend to be located close to bauxite mines and/or ports for efficient transport of raw materials and of the final product.
