Bauxite

Manufacturing Term

A general term for a rock composed of a mixture of hydrated aluminum oxides and hydroxides and generally contaminated with compounds of iron. It is the main ore from which aluminum is produced. The principal aluminum hydroxide minerals found in varying proportions with bauxites are gibbsite and the polymorphs boehmite and diaspore.

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 the Bayer process.
