The processing of high silica bauxites — Review of ...

2009-8-1  1. Introduction1.1.. ScopeThis document will critically review existing and potential processes for the processing of high silica bauxites. High silica bauxites are usually considered to be those with reactive silica contents in excess of ∼. 8% by weight of the bauxite (reactive silica is defined later in this paper).. This review is limited to bauxites as feedstocks for the processes.

World reserves of bauxite include vast quantities of ore which at present are sub-economic due to high levels of reactive silica that cause expensive loss of caustic soda during Bayer processing. As the economic reserves of high grade ores diminish, attention is turning to how these lower grade ores may be processed at reasonable cost.

2018-11-1  1. Introduction. Bauxite resources are widely distributed in the world and are the main resources for aluminum production (Ma et al., 2009, Ma et al., 2011).Almost all of bauxite ores in China are diasporic-characterized and do not meet the demands in the Bayer process for aluminum production due to their high silica content and low Al 2 O 3:SiO 2 ratio (Ma et al., 2009).

2020-6-11  The benefits for high silica bauxite processing come from the reduction of digestion temperature and the consequent reduction (or elimination) of quartz attack that would normally occur under the temperatures commonly used to digest boehmitic bauxite. Comalco (Rio Tinto) has a number of patents over this process ( Hollitt et al., 2000, 2001 ...

The Processing of High Quartz Bauxite SpringerLink

Abstract. Low-grade bauxite refers to bauxite that is high in silica, which is present as kaolin, or quartz, and therefore requires different approaches for processing. With digestion of gibbsitic bauxites the quartz would remain largely undissolved. The nature and hardness of Quartz with respect to other minerals in bauxite will suggest that ...

2019-12-17  During this process, the low-grade bauxite is roasted at 900–1000°C, after which the roasted bauxite is leached by a low-concentration caustic solution to remove the silica, while alumina retains its solid state. After filtering, a high-A/S bauxite concentrate is obtained, which can be applied as a raw material for the Bayer process.
