31/07/18

Paris – La Défense, France, 31 july 2018

Bureau Veritas has won a contract to operate a new state-of-the-art laboratory in the Republic of Guinea for a Major Mining company headquartered in UK.

The dedicated laboratory will be housed onsite Major Mining company’s new project in the West of Guinea, around 15km from the coast and 120km north of the capital, Conakry. Staffed by 31 mainly local employees, the laboratory will provide a full range of testing services for the project, including grade control and exploration analysis. Analytical services provided will enable the Major Mining company to plan the mine’s activity, and optimize its bauxite shipments.  

 

Guinea is home to around a third of the world’s reserves of bauxite, which is refined and smelted to make aluminum. The country’s bauxite enjoys a strong reputation for quality, due to its high alumina content.

 

The bauxite production is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2018. It is expected to produce 5.5 million tons of high-grade bauxite per annum, with the potential to expand to 10 million tons per annum.

 

Bureau Veritas is the global independent leader in bauxite testing and market leader in Africa. It operates a total of 5 laboratories in Guinea and West Africa, plus 2 major labs to come. They provide clients with sample preparation and full analysis and Trade services. It is also able to leverage a worldwide network: indeed, Bureau Veritas Australia provided the Major Mining company with exploration analysis service during the initial exploration phase of the Bel Air project.  

 

Patrick Libihoul, Market Leader Metals and Minerals Africa for Bureau Veritas said:

 

“Bureau Veritas has invested in building real expertise in bauxite testing, and I am delighted that our leadership has been recognized by this Major Mining company. The new laboratory will feature state of the art set up in bauxite in Guinea, enabling us to provide the Major Mining company with upmost precise results and  highly efficient service.”
