KUALA LUMPUR: The Natural Resource and Environment Ministry views seriously the bauxite mining activities in Kuantan due to it causing pollution.

Its Deputy Minister Datuk Hamim Samuri said there was pollution around Kuantan Port due to poor bauxite stockpile management in the port and surrounding areas during the initial stage of mining.

He said the ministry recommended the use of the Best Management Practices in managing the bauxite stockpile, surface runoff management, bauxite transportation management, and dust control.
