This was the first operation of the Lam Dong Bauxite-Alumina Complex, nearly four years after the project received approval.

The mining works, conducted by the Ha Tu Coal Joint Stock Company under the Vietnam Coal and Mineral Industries Group (Vinacomin), will supply materials for aluminium processing at the complex, which is scheduled to start later this year.

According to Vinacomin, the complex still faces difficulties in electricity supply and human resource availability. However, the group pledged to try its best to put the aluminium processing plant into trial operation by the end of the year.
