      alumina, understanding the REE resource potential of bauxites is integral to the assessment of European REE resources. Introduction Research into the rare earth element (REE) content of bauxites has a long history, with authigenic rare earth minerals first identified in the San Giovanni Rotondo deposit in Italy1. Bauxite, once considered as a hydrated aluminum oxide mineral, is actually a mixture of minerals, which technically makes it a rock. It consists mostly of the minerals gibbsite Al(OH) 3, boehmite AlO(OH), and diaspore AlO(OH), together with the two iron oxides goethite and hematite, as well as the clay mineral .

      Bauxites are typically classified according to their intended commercial application: abrasive, cement, chemical, metallurgical, refractory, etc. The bulk of world bauxite production (approximately 85%) is used as feed for the manufacture of alumina via a wet chemical caustic leach method commonly known as . Mineral deposits have been found both in rocks that lie beneath the oceans and in rocks that form the continents, although the only deposits that actually have been mined are in the continental rocks.(The mining of ocean deposits lies in the future.) The continental crust averages 35–40 kilometres (20–25 miles) in thickness, and below the crust lies the mantle.

      Karst bauxite deposits are currently investigated as a new resource for rare earth elements (REE) in order to avoid present and future supply shortfalls of these critical metals. The present work focuses on the geochemistry and mineralogy of the REE in karst bauxite deposits of the Catalan Coastal Range (CCR), NE-Spain. investigating bauxite residue from an alumina refiner processing Darling Range (Western Australia) bauxite in a low temperature (~ oC) digest. Aims and Objectives The aim of this study is to provide a comprehensive description of the speciation of potentially toxic metals and NORMs and their mineralogical settings.

Abstract. The mineralogy, chemical composition and physical characteristics of different bauxites, which are mined and processed today, reflect associated rock types, tectonics and other geological factors associated with the different deposits and provide a basis for their classification into distinct groups from the standpoint of the Bayer alumina plant.

mineralogy (high processing costs) than lateritic deposits. Most bauxite mines produce Direct Shipping Ore (DSO) bauxite as they require no processing before being sent to a refinery. However, some bauxites require some form of screening (either wet or dry) to remove the fine grained material to improve the grade and/or handleability.

In this paper, the mineral composition and main mineral morphology of bauxite were studied from ZhongXiang deposit, HuBei province. Through Electron Microscope Identification, there are two main rock types, oolitic, bean-like and aphanitic or fine crystalline structure of bauxite.

The main mineral morphology is micro-crystalline or flake, crumby forms. The present work focuses on the geochemistry and mineralogy of the REE in karst bauxite deposits of the Catalan Coastal Range (CCR), NE-Spain.

It is revealed that the studied bauxitic ores have a dominant breccia and local ooido-pisoidic and pelitomorphic texture. Five typical bauxite samples from three ore deposits from the wider area of Grebnik Mt.

(Metohija, Serbia) were examined with the optical microscopic, X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) and chemical methods. The occurrences in bauxites were studied and described and the presence of major minerals was determined: diaspore, boehmite and hematite; minor minerals: quartz, goethite, rutile, kaolinite.

Mass-balance equations applied to chemical analyses of a bauxite weathering profile in Western Australia show quantitatively that the ore-grade enrichment of aluminium is due to accumulation of.

The specific surface area of the obtained samples varied in the range of – m 2 /g. Arsenic adsorption experiments were carried out using five different types of red muds: industrial Bayer, industrial sintering, and red mud obtained through bauxite alkali fusion at, and °C.

Mineralogy and geochemistry of trace elements in bauxites: the Devonian Schugorsk deposit, Russia Processes of mineral alteration involving the mobilization and deposition of more than 30 chemical elements during bauxite formation and epigenesis have been studied on specimens from the Devonian Schugorsk bauxite deposit, Timan, Russia.

The basic mineralogy of lateritic bauxites is similar throughout the world. The most sought after bauxite mineral is the aluminium hydroxide mineral gibbsite, Al(OH) 3.

Although it has a lower aluminium content than some other minerals, gibbsite-rich bauxite is cheaper to mine and process.minerals Article Geochemistry and Mineralogy of Rare Earth Elements (REE) in Bauxitic Ores of the Catalan Coastal Range, NE Spain Nils Reinhardt 1,2,3,*, Joaquín A.
