CITA in a glance
The year of 2018 was the important stage that proves the ability of PT Cita Mineral Investindo Tbk (CITA / the Company) as an increasingly stable company in the bauxite mining business and the production of Smelter Grade Alumina (SGA). CITA entered the SGA business since the commercial operation of the first stage bauxite processing plant, which is under the associated entity PT Well Harvest Winning Alumina Refinery (WHW). Along with the operation of WHW’s SGA production plant, CITA is proud to be able to supply the main raw materials for aluminium production for the national aluminium industry which previously only relied on imported materials. CITA has been able to realize the export of washed bauxite or Metallurgical Grade Bauxite (MGB) for 2.66 million tons in the period from January to December 2018. This achievement was accompanied by MGB sales to the domestic market for 1.30 million tons. In the same year, the Company was also awarded an export quota of MGB for 3.28 million tons for the period of 2018 to 2019.
