Bauxite Mining Industry in Guinea and the Valorization Prospects of the Resulting Residue for Engineering Purposes

Because of the importance and diversity of its natural riches, Guinea is recognised as a geological disaster. Experts, regardless of the grading system, utilise superlatives to highlight the country’s tremendous potential. Guinea has 33 percent of the world’s known bauxite reserves, according to several geological surveys. The way a deposit’s content is defined is inconsistent, and the ideas and definitions are muddled up in different statistics data. As a result, when evaluating distinct bauxite resources, an expert must be aware of the terminologies in use and change his evaluation accordingly. The large bauxite potential presents a significant chance for the country to become a global leader in the bauxite and aluminium industries, as well as create red mud value-adding prospects. The bauxite potential and local alumina industry in Guinea, as well as the technology utilised to evaluate the resulting red mud, are discussed in this article. Guinea’s largest direct contribution to GDP comes from the bauxite and alumina sector.
