About: The Felicitas bauxite project is to be developed 60 kilometres north east of Perth. The extensive Felicitas bauxite reserve is, in the main, located within the Shire of Toodyay, however parts of the resource extend into the adjoining shires of Mundaring and Northam, all within the Darling Range in Western Australia.

The Felicitas Bauxite Project is Being Developed by Bauxite Resources and Yankuang Corporation

The Felicitas bauxite project is being developed as a joint venture between Bauxite Resources Limited and Chinese state owned mining company, Yankuang Corporation. The joint venture is known as, Bauxite Alumina Joint Ventures (BAJV). Bauxite Resources Limited was founded in May 2007 and it became publicly listed in 2007.

Felicitas Resource Contains 220 Million Tonnes of Bauxite

The Felicitas bauxite project is located 1.5 kilometres from an existing railway infrastructure that gives it a direct rail link to the Freemantle and Kwinana port,120 kilometres it its south west. The bauxite resource extends 20 kilometres to the south of the project area, crossing both the Toodyay and Morangup roads until it finishes about five kilometres north west of Wundowie. The deposit contains a resource of 220 million tonnes that will give the project a life of mine of around 25 years at currently planned production levels.

The Felicitas Bauxite Project's Next Step is a Feasibility Study

Feasibility studies are being undertaken at the Felicitas bauxite project that is examining the options around operating as a Direct Shipment Ore (DSO), or processing the ore on site, type of undertaking. If the prefeasibility studies prove to be positive the Felicitas Bauxite Project's next step is to obtain Environmental Protection Authority Approval before a mining lease can be issued that will allow mining to occur.

Felicitas Bauxite Mine to Create Many Jobs and Opportunities

The Felicitas bauxite mining operation is to create full time jobs for 120 workers, most of which are expected to come from the local population. Indirect opportunities will also be created for local suppliers and training partnerships.

Felicitas Bauxite Project to be an Open Cut Mine

The Felicitas bauxite project will entail readying the site for an open pit operation that will make use of surface continuous miners, rather than blasting. The removal of bauxite will be made with the use of conventional truck and shovel methods. The mine pits will be quite shallow, averaging only five metres. In order to produce a consistent grade of bauxite, the mine will most likely be worked with a few pits operating at the one time to allow blending. It is currently planned for the ore to be stockpiled within the site area for blending to take place before the bauxite is loaded onto railway trucks that will take it to the port for export.

The Felicitas bauxite project has a most promising resource that is considered to be of a suitable grade for successful refining, as it has characteristics similar to other bauxite deposits located in the Darling Range. The resource shows it has excellent reactive silica to available alumina ratios which will make it an ideal material for refining alumina at low temperatures.
