Fiji’s first bauxite shipment to China is expected to be shipped by Monday.

Director Mineral Resources Malakai Finau said the first shipment is expected to take about 50,000-60,000 tonnes of bauxite.

“Officials are just waiting for the boat to arrive so it can load and take the bauxite,” Finau said.

The shipment was scheduled for March but was postponed due to the adverse weather conditions and the delay in the construction of the 800 metre wharf.

Aurum Exploration owns the bauxite mine in Bua, Vanua Levu.
