A total of 79,500 metric tonnes of bauxite were shipped off to China last Sunday.

Aurum Exploration Fiji managing director Isireli Dagaga confirmed the shipment on the vessel MV Pan Energen.

“The bauxite was taken from its new site at Nawailevu North,” he said.

Mr Dagaga said this was their second shipment in the year and work on the new site had started in January.

“The delay in shipment was because of adverse weather conditions experienced recently in the North.”

He said mining started on a slow pace this year compared to last year.

“The loading started on March 26.”

The company expects to extract 400,000 tonnes of bauxite from the new site.

“We are yet to confirm the date of the next shipment,” he said.
