PARAMARIBO--The Suralco alumina refinery and bauxite mines in Suriname are closing indefinitely New York-based aluminium producer Alcoa Corporation announced in a press release on Wednesday that it was working to reach the best possible solution that would enable Suriname to maintain its bauxite industry.
Bauxite is not a mineral, but rather a group of aluminum oxid The term is generally used to describe the economically important mixture of these minerals, which form a mass of the individually classified members of Gibbsite, Boehmite, and Diaspore.
Alcoa is ramping down production at its refinery in Suriname, citing evaporating bauxite reserves and energy costs The closure of the plant, which will curtail annual capacity of 887,000 tonnes of alumina, is expected to cost the company US$65 million to US$75 million in restructuring charges, after tax.

Bauxite: Bauxite, rock largely composed of a mixture of hydrous aluminum oxid Bauxite is the principal ore of aluminum Bauxites vary physically according to the origin and geologic history of their deposits: some deposits are soft, easily crushed, and structureless; some are hard, dense, and pisolitic.

The main export of Suriname is bauxite, an aluminum ore that is exported to several major countries across the world and contributing around fifteen percent of the country's GDP.
Bauxite is a sedimentary rock with a relatively high aluminium content It is the world's main source of aluminium Bauxite consists mostly of the aluminium minerals gibbsite (Al(OH) 3), boehmite (γ-AlO(OH)) and diaspore (α-AlO(OH)), mixed with the two iron oxides goethite and haematite, the aluminium clay mineral kaolinite and small amounts.
