By David Lohr and John NoltePublished Feb 06, 2018 09:12:17After years of waiting, the world finally got a look at the U: It looks like aluminum mining has arrived.
The U.K. government has awarded a contract to a Canadian company to mine for aluminum ore at a new site.
The site will be in Alaskan territory.
In February, the U, UK, Canada and Australia announced the commencement of the first phase of the Alaskamite Project, which will include an extraction plant, a processing plant and a mine that will produce aluminum ore.
The project, which is being led by Canadian firm Global Resource, will cost $3 billion.
In January, the Canadian government awarded the same contract to an Alaska Mining Corporation.
The company will operate a copper mine that is expected to produce up to 30 tons of aluminum a day, depending on weather conditions.
The Alaskas aluminum production is expected in 2028, and the U., the UK, and Australia are expected to sign agreements with the Canadian company later this year.
The project is being funded by $400 million in government funds.
The British government has also given a green light to the project, according to the New York Times.
The U.N. Security Council, which has condemned aluminum mining and the construction of new aluminum smelters in the region, has voiced its disapproval.
The council is scheduled to discuss the Alaskite project at its next meeting on Feb. 24.
Alaskan aluminum has been mined for over 300 years, and was first discovered in the United States in 1896.
The aluminum ore was then exported to Europe, where it became the material used in the manufacture of many different types of aluminum bars.
The United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada are the only countries to have signed agreements with Global Resource.
The Alaskans aluminum is expected by 2019.
