Mining and Refining Bauxite Residue Management

The most important barrier to remediation, use and long term sustainability of bauxite residue management is its high alkalinity. Bauxite residues and the runoff from storage areas can be treated to reduce their pH, further reducing the risk of environmental impacts and facilitating rehabilitation of the disposal area after closure.

Mining and Refining Bauxite Residue Utilisation

Addition of bauxite residue to acidic and sandy soils can be beneficial in many ways and considerable work in this area has been undertaken in Western Australia. Bauxite residue was added to sandy soil together with 5% gypsum. The additions improved water retention and nutrient utilisation ability. Greatly increased ammonium and phosphorus

Mining and Refining Process

The bauxite residue sinks to the bottom of the settling tanks, then is transferred to the washing tanks, where it undergoes a series of washing stages to recover the caustic soda (which is reused in the digestion process). Further separation of the pregnant liquor from the bauxite residue is performed utilising a series of security filters. The
