An aluminium-bauxite project in the Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) province of Lam Dong should turn out its first batch of aluminium product in the second quarter of this year, according to the Vietnam National Coal and Mineral Industries Group.

By the end of 2010, 99.5 trillion VND had been invested in the project, accounting for 85 percent of its total investment. A bauxite factory will also be put into operation in April this year.

Of this, Tan Rai Aluminium Bauxite Project has completed almost 90 percent of work while Nhan Co Alumin Project is conducting a geological survey for the implementation of the remaining part./.
