Twenty-two shipments of bauxite has been carried out by Xinfa Aurum Exploration (Fiji) Limited from the year 2012 to 2015.

This was confirmed by the company managing director Derek Qiu to FijiSun yesterday.

He said the last shipment of bauxite from Nawailevu North Jetty in Bua Vanua Levu was done in April this year.

“The next shipment to China will be carried out probably in October depending on the demand,” Mr Qiu.

He said for this year they did only two shipments.

“Our target was to send 10 shipments of bauxite however, we cannot achieve this due to the global demand sharp down,” Mr Qiu said.

“Secondly, the number of shipment per year mainly depends on the weather.”

Mr Qiu said mining was in progress and they have enough stock pile of bauxite.

“We have completed mining in Nawailevu South in Bua and currently we are mining in Nawailevu North,” Mr Qiu said.

The company expects 400,000 tonnes of bauxite to be extracted from the new site at Nawailevu north in Bua.

A total of 79,500 metric tonnes of bauxite were shipped off in April and the next shipment is expected to leave our shores in October.
