Malaysia: Bauxite Mining Remains Suspended Until Environmental Assessments Completed


Bauxite mining and exports will not begin immediately after the expiry of the moratorium end of this month, said Water, Land and Natural Resources Minister Dr Xavier Jayakumar. He said the government will continue to restrict bauxite mining activities in the country until all stakeholders adhere to the new standard operating procedure (SOP), which will be made public in the next two weeks.
