Russian aluminum producer RUSAL has suspended the works in Guyana due to unrest in the country.
“As a result of serious illegitimate actions that have gone beyond the control of government and enforcement agencies, including arson of the electricity pylon basement and other corporate property, and blocking of the river, RUSAL considers it prudent to suspend and mothball operations of Bauxite Company of Guyana (BCGI). Written notices of termination have been sent to 326 employees,” the company said.
The suspension of BCGI will not affect RUSAL’s overall performance as the bauxites of Guyana will be replaced. (Prime/Ukrainian metal)
