Mineral Revenues

As a signatory to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), we support enhancing the transparency of mineral revenues. We believe that engaging with and supporting governments that implement EITI’s principles helps to ensure mining revenues are used appropriately to address a host country’s and host community’s social needs.

During 2019, we had four active bauxite mining areas in Australia and Brazil and one active coal mine in the United States, which was fully curtailed in April 2019. We also have minority interests in bauxite mining activities in Brazil, Guinea and Saudi Arabia, but those non-controlled joint ventures are not included in this report. Learn more on the Alcoa section of the EITI website.
