Bauxite

Bauxite, the raw material for the production of alumina, was first discovered in 1924 at Kijang, Bintan Island, in the province of Riau, in northwestern Indonesia. Bauxite from Bintan Island has been mined and exported since 1935. In 1968 ANTAM acquired the mine. Thus, ANTAM is Indonesia's longest running producer of bauxite. ANTAM Bauxite commodity is produced in Tayan Bauxite Mining, West Kalimantan.

Following the closure of the Kijang bauxite mine in 2009, ANTAM is currently developing two alumina projects to further add value to its vast bauxite reserves in Kalimantan.
