Chinese Bauxite Statistics
The Chinese bauxite import statistics for the month of September 2011 show another record month with imported tonnage of bauxite being 37% more than last year at 4.48 million tonnes for the month. View figures here: http://media.abnnewswire.net/media/en/docs/70279-ABZ.pdf
The price of Australian bauxite imported into China has risen 19% to US$57.23/tonne.
Commenting on the market trends, ABx CEO, Ian Levy said;" The upward trend in prices and tonnages has been a bit above expectations but not surprising when one looks at the industry transformation that has occurred in China and India since 2003. Most pleasing is the fact that Australian Bauxite's discoveries are achieving price premiums exceeding 25%."
This week, market assessment activities for products from Australian Bauxite's Goulburn Project have commenced as part of the Pre-Feasibility Study. These involve discussions with some of the world's largest importers of bauxite.

About Australian Bauxite Limited
Australian Bauxite Limited (ABx) (ASX:ABZ) holds the core of the newly discovered Eastern Australian Bauxite Province. Its 37 bauxite tenements in Queensland, NSW and Tasmania covering 8,500 km2 were rigorously selected on 3 principles: 1. good quality bauxite; 2. proximity to infrastructure connected to export ports; and, 3. free of socio-environmental or native title land constraints.
All tenements are 100% owned and free of obligations for processing and third-party royalties. ABx has already discovered many bauxite deposits and new discoveries are still being made as knowledge and expertise grows.
The company's bauxite is high quality and can be processed into alumina at low temperature – the type that is in short-supply globally. Global resources declared to date are 68 million tonnes. At the company's first drilling prospect in Inverell, northern NSW, an interim resource of 35 million tonnes has been reported from drilling 15% to 20% of the area prospective for bauxite and a resource of 25 million tonnes of bauxite has been reported at the Taralga project in southern NSW. 6 million tonnes maiden resource was declared at Guyra. Results from the Binjour Plateau in central QLD confirm that ABx has discovered a significant bauxite deposit including some bauxite of outstandingly high quality. Australian Bauxite Limited aspires to identify large bauxite resources in the Eastern Australian Bauxite Province which is emerging as one of the world's best bauxite provinces.
ABx has the potential to create significant bauxite developments in three states - Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania. Its bauxite deposits are favourably located for direct shipping of bauxite to both local and export customers.
