The 6th International Bauxite-Alumina symposium of IBAAS-CAMEN organized in Conakry, Guinea during September 21-22, 2017 was highly successful and well appreciated by participants, Government officials and media. There were about 130 delegates from all over the world including several participants from Guinea. Representatives of Ministry of Geology & Mines, SOGUIPAMI, CPDM and organizations associated with mining industry and foreign companies participated in 2 days symposium and exhibition. Organizers have been requested to periodically return to this bauxite rich country and disseminate knowledge and information about worldwide developments in bauxite-alumina field. 

Guinea, being a happening place for rapid development of bauxite mining & export, this west African country had been selected for the 6th International Bauxite-Alumina symposium. Guinea ranks first in the world in bauxite reserves and in coming years this country will surpass the giant Australia in high-grade bauxite export. Despite the tremendous development in bauxite mining industry, Guinea’s and Africa’s only alumina refinery is struggling to survive. Fria alumina refinery of Guinea is closed since 2012 and there is no new alumina refinery is visible on the horizon. Further rapid construction of bauxite mining industry and port / jetties requires sustainable development to reap the benefits of a large high grade bauxite resources. Keeping this in view, IBAAS symposium was organized in this country to discuss all the issues of bauxite-alumina industry in the country.   

The symposium organizing committee formulated a World Class Program focusing on key topics and issues in the bauxite and alumina area relevant to Guinea.



The main areas  covered were as follows:
  • Geological & Geomorphological Features of Guinea Bauxite
  • Updates on Bauxite Exploration activities in Guinea
  • Present status of Bauxite Mining in Guinea
  • Position of Guinea Bauxite in the world
  • Environmental aspects of Bauxite Mining & Exports
  • Sustainable development of Bauxite exploitation in Guinea
  • Techno – Economics of settings up Alumina Refinery in Guinea
  • Value Addition & Non-metallurgical Uses of Bauxite
  • Need to set up Bauxite-Alumina Institute in Guinea
  • Comparative economics of setting up of refinery in Guinea and other countries
  • Marketing aspects of Guinea Bauxite


The Symposium provided an excellent opportunity to meet and interact with Bauxite Mining & Exploration companies of Guinea, International experts, Scientists, Engineers, Entrepreneurs, Representatives of bauxite-alumina industries world over.
