  “Production at managed operations increased by 9% underpinned by the Amrun mine, whilst production at the non-managed CBG joint venture in Guinea increased by 7% reflecting good progress on the ramp-up of the expansion.”
  In the first half of 2020, bauxite production came in at 28.37 million tonnes, 8% higher than the first half of 2019.
  The company shipped 10.7 million tonnes of bauxite to third parties in the second quarter, 13% higher than same period of 2019.
  “Our Bauxite Integrated Operations Centre (BIOC) in Brisbane, Australia provides 24/7 operation and monitoring of all safety, production and quality aspects at our remote bauxite sites in Weipa, Queensland and Gove, Northern Territory. We continue to apply technology solutions for optimising the supply chain, leveraging data analytics and progressing automation initiatives. For instance, we are utilising a fully automated “drone in a box” for remote monitoring of stock piles, removing the need for manual visual inspection.”
