By 2000, however, exploitation of these reserves, in which Mozambique has reportedly expressed interest, had still not commenced. Ghana’s bauxite reserves are estimated at 780m. tons. Although the country lacks an alumina refinery, it possesses a substantial aluminium smelter facility, located at Tema, which processes imported alumina.
