Bauxite Mining Encyclopedia of Arkansas

2020-9-21  Bauxite is the principal ore of aluminum and is a mixture of aluminum oxides and hydroxides that formed from intense chemical weathering of a soil in tropical environments. Soils formed under these conditions are termed laterites. In Arkansas, the aluminum-enriched soils are the result of the decomposition and lateritic weathering of nepheline syenite, an intrusive igneous rock. During the

Bauxite an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The bauxite formed a bed averaging 2 m thick. The bauxite is friable and reddish-brown, contains boulders of all sizes up to 12 m diameter of gabbro, which would hinder mining. The core of the boulders is fresh, with a thin skin of bauxite. The bauxite ranged from 45–53% A1 2 O 3 and contains 64–78 % gibbsite. A thick bed of kaolinite, goethite and some gibbsite underlies the bauxite.

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.
