Nabalco, (North Australian Bauxite and Alumina Company) was a mining and extraction company set up in 1964 to exploit bauxite reserves on the Gove Peninsula, Australia. Nabalco was renamed Alcan Gove Pty Ltd in 2002.
The development was opposed by the indigenous inhabitants, which gave rise to the legal action Milirrpum v Nabalco Pty Ltd (Gove land rights case). That resulted in a ruling against intrinsic native land rights in 1971.
