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., 2014; Lee et al., 2017).

4.2.3 Bauxite mining. Mining of bauxite being an impermanent activity, most of the time, negatively impact the environment in long terms. In terms of production, the primary source of the world’s aluminum comes from bauxite as 99% of metallic aluminum (Lee et al., 2017). The bauxite is extracted from both surface and underground deposits.

Bauxite is a residual rock formed from the weathering of various igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. These parent rocks have been exposed to long periods (millions of years) of weathering under tropical, subtropical, or very wet temperate conditions. Ninety percent of the known world bauxite resources are in tropical locations.
