ABx has developed Tas Tech, a technology which enables the separation of bauxite into cement-grade, fertiliser-grade and metallurgical-grade. This has enabled the tailoring of product to suit the customer needs. Ongoing sales have been made to the fertiliser industry and the cement industry since 2015.
This product was sourced from the Bald Hill Mine. ABx is applying for a new, larger bauxite mine at Fingal Rail near Conara in northern Tasmania.
The location of the first Alcore production site will be in Tasmania near the Bell Bay Port. Rare earth elements have also been detected in Tasmania.
