Aluminium in Africa originates primarily in Guinea, Mozambique and Ghana. Guinea is by far the biggest producer in Africa, and is a world leader in aluminium and bauxite production; see "World bauxite mine production, reserves, and reserve base" at the bauxite article.

There are many companies involved in the aluminium trade in Africa. Principal mine and smelter operators include:

Cameroon Cameroon[edit]

Egypt Egypt[edit] Nagehammadi factory of aluminium

Ghana Ghana[edit]

Guinea Guinea[edit]

Mozambique Mozambique[edit]

South Africa South Africa[edit]

  • South Africa does not mine bauxite nor refine alumina; BHP Billiton operates two smelters at Richards Bay in Kwazulu Natal.
