Developing Guinea’s potential for bauxite production
SMB brings sustainability to the bauxite sector by developing rural areas with infrastructure construction and job creation for young Guineans.
The SMB-Winning Consortium has signed three agreements with the government of the Republic of Guinea, ratified by the National Assembly unanimously in December 2018, to deliver an integrated project for the Boké region. Within the SMB-Winning Consortium, SMB has played a leading role in the implementation of this real company project.
Since it was founded in 2014, SMB has developed various ports and logistics activities by constructing, extending and managing the international river port of Boké, composed of two river terminals, in Dapilon and Katougouma.
In addition, since June 2021, the Société Minière de Boké has commissioned a rail line for the transport of minerals, the first rail line built in the country since the 1970s. The railway will link the Santou II and Houda deposits to the river port of Dapilon and includes 21 bridges, two tunnels and six depots.
