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.
