QAL makes production milestone

By GLEN PORTEOUSglenp@gladstoneobserver.com.au

QAL has achieved an international production mile- stone of 100 million tonnes of alumina.

This milestone has taken 38 years to accomplish.

With more than 40 people in attendance for this important celebration, it attracted dignitaries from general managers, government representatives and past and present employees.

QAL manager director, Johann van Zyl said: ''That it is with great honour and pride that today we mark this significant milestone in our production history.''

Mr van Zyl also said QAL had played a large part in the development of Gladstone and the region had developed into the industrial hub of Australia.

Federal Member for Hinkler, Paul Neville, said a theoretical calculation was done and it was estimated that more than $US30 billion had been generated by QAL over 38 years for both domestic and international markets.

QAL's last million tonnes was produced in only three months.
