Bauxite an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Surface mining is more common than underground mining because most of the bauxite deposits occur near the surface. The extraction of bauxite takes place by shallow, open-cut mining following the open-pit method. The bauxite ores content is of different types and the most amount of clay, and need to be washed before the process (Donoghue et al

Bauxite: The principal ore of aluminum.

Physical Properties of Bauxite. Bauxite is typically a soft material with a hardness of only 1 to 3 on the Mohs scale.It is white to gray to reddish brown with a pisolitic structure, earthy luster and a low specific gravity of between 2.0 and 2.5. These properties are useful for identifying bauxite; however, they have nothing to do with bauxite's value or usefulness.

Bauxite is a sedimentary rock with a relatively high aluminium content. It is the world's main source of aluminium and gallium.Bauxite consists mostly of the aluminium minerals gibbsite (Al(OH) 3), boehmite (γ-AlO(OH)) and diaspore (α-AlO(OH)), mixed with the two iron oxides goethite (FeO(OH)) and haematite (Fe 2 O 3), the aluminium clay mineral kaolinite (Al 2 Si 2 O 5 (OH) 4) and small
