Jun 25, 1980 tions in bauxite mining costs estimated in 1980 between US$12/mt and US$30/mt. Labor accounts for 20-30 percent of the cost, energy for about 25 percent, and depreciation and interest for another 30 percent. Besides, some of the main producing countries have imposed levies on bauxite mining which go from US$10
Jul 20, 2002 The conservation of rain forests is a key concern often voiced with regard to bauxite mining. Only about 6 % of the worlds bauxite mining is today conducted in rain forest regions, affecting a total area of around 1.5 km 2 per year. The total area of the globe currently covered by rain forest is about 18 million km 2.. The original flora and fauna of much of the
