Rio Tinto Alcan Gove Operations

To the Aboriginal people the red rocks of Uluru are a holy place; to white people the red ore of the Gove Peninsula are a holy reason to build this cathedral of modern technology and to make a pilgrimage to Sanctus Bauxitus. The operation is situated on extensive deposits of bauxite, a red ore with high content of aluminium oxide. Gove produced 8 million tons of bauxite and 2.3 million tons of aluminium in 2013.
