Alliance Mining Commodities Ltd (AMC) is a privately-owned company that has been granted a Mining Concession by Presidential Decree for the development of the Koumbia Bauxite Project in the Gaoaul Prefecture in the northwest of the Republic of Guinea in West Africa. The Government of Guinea holds a 10 percent free carried interest in AMC SA, the subsidiary which holds the concession.
The Koumbia Bauxite Project is a World Class bauxite development. With a JORC (2012) resource in excess of 1.53 Billion tonnes of low temperature Al2O3 (THA) product, this high-quality direct shipping ore is poised to exploit the rapidly expanding global demand for bauxite. The Koumbia ore, high in alumina and low in reactive silica and boehmite, makes it particularly attractive for use in a low temperature refining process.
The Koumbia Project is targeting a simple, low cost development, which will initially target an 11Mwt/pa production rate, ramping up over a 12 month period. Due to the size of the current mineral resource base, there is strong potential to expand the operation significantly during the early years to a capacity well in excess of the initial production targets.
