KINGSTON, Jamaica – Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller announced a short while ago that the Russian company UC RUSAL yesterday commenced the mining and processing of bauxite at the Alpart refinery at Nain in St Elizabeth.
So far, the company has employed some 40 people and it has given its commitment to employ another 70 people by the end of April, the prime minister said.

The haulage of the bauxite from the factory to the ports will take place during April.
