Guinea – Bauxite (for aluminum)

Guinea is responsible for more than 95 percent of Africa’s bauxite production, while Ghana accounts for the remainder. An aluminum ore, bauxite is crucial for aluminum production. In 2005, Guinea was the only African producer of alumina — synthetically produced aluminum oxide – and the country continues to hold its critical place in helping with the world aluminum demand.
