Construction began on the Kirkvine Works plant in 1950. In 1952, commercial mining began and the first alumina was produced in December that same year.
Bauxite mined at the site is used at the refinery for alumina production. Alumina and hydrate are sold to both internal and external parties.
Major development projects include expanding the mud stacking facility, constructing a sand removal system, and rehabilitating the digestion and ball mill areas.
