Compagnie des Bauxites de Kindia is one of the Metals segment’s largest feedstock assets, providing more than 25% of the total bauxite output

The company became part of RUSAL in 2000, with production starting in 2001.

CBK operates bauxite deposits and infrastructure, including rail line and an ore transshipment port.

CBK operates using the blast free thin layer bauxite mining method, which has enabled the company to develop remote deposits with minimal infrastructure costs and reduce its environmental impact.

Exploration has been completed and reserves prepared for mining at the Central, Sankaran, Northwestern Balaya, Northeastern Balaya, and Southern Balaya areas.
