Aluminium Philippine has great development potential. The newly proven bauxite reserves are about 73.2 million tons. Subsequent bauxite refining, molten aluminum casting and the production of aluminum products will have new breakthroughs.

The proven bauxite reserves in the Samar Island area of ​​the Philippines are about 73.2 million tons, which can be mined for 20 years based on the annual output of 4 million tons, and there are also 45.7 million tons of potential reserves.

Marcventures said that especially considering the growing demand for applications such as electric vehicles, batteries, aerospace and construction, the project is expected to have a high profitability rate.

The only two bauxite mines in the Philippines are owned and operated by the Philippines Marcventures Mining Company.

According to reports, once approved by the Bureau of Mines and Geosciences, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries will develop a bauxite mine in Samar, which will make Mitsubishi Heavy Industries the only company in the Philippines that uses bauxite as a mineral commodity.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries acquired bauxite in Samar in 2016. Bauxite is a high-value raw material used to produce alumina, which is then used to produce aluminum.

Introduction of Large-scale Bauxite Mine Project in Samar Island, Philippines
Mine location: The Philippine bauxite mine is located in Western Samar Province on Samar Island in the central part of the Philippines.
The mining rights are held by two companies: AMPI and BARI.
AMPI covers an area of ​​66.94 square kilometers and has obtained a large-scale mining license granted by the Philippine government for this mining area.
BARI covers an area of ​​55.19 square kilometers and has obtained a large-scale mining license granted by the Philippine government.

The minerals in this mining area are mainly gibbsite with high aluminum-silicon ratio, which can be applied to the low-temperature Bayer process alumina production process, with low energy consumption, low alkali consumption and low production cost.
Characteristics of bauxite in this mining area
The mineral is gibbsite.
The ore is mainly accumulated in depressions; the thickness of the ore layer is 1~2 meters thinner and about 20 meters thick.
The ore is loose soil and easy to mine.
No need to wash.
Suitable for open-pit mining.
