Rusal to launch bauxite mine in Guinea

Diane Dian is the world's largest bauxite deposit

SYKTYVKAR, April 5. /TASS/. Rusal will start mining bauxites at the Dian-Dian mine in Guinea before the end of April, the company's president Vladislav Soloviev told reporters.

"By the end of April, we will start the mine with the capacity of 3 million tonnes (a year - TASS). There are plans to increase the capacity up to 5 mln tonnes, but their implementation depends on infrastructure capabilities, in particular, on the throughput of the railway. We will work on it," he said.

Diane Dian is the world's largest bauxite deposit. Earlier, Yakov Itskov head of the alumina business department of Rusal estimated the investments in the first two stages of the project at $ 216 mln.
