Mining and Refining – Process - World Aluminium

Unlike the base metal ores, bauxite does not require complex processing because most of the bauxite mined is of an acceptable grade. Ore quality can be improved by relatively simple and inexpensive processes for removing clay, known as “beneficiation”, which include washing, wet screening and mechanical or manual sorting.

Bauxite - Wikipedia

Bauxite is usually strip mined because it is almost always found near the surface of the terrain, with little or no overburden. As of 2010 , approximately 70% to 80% of the world's dry bauxite production is processed first into alumina and then into aluminium by electrolysis. Bauxite rocks are typically classified according to their intended commercial application: metallurgical, abrasive, cement, chemical, and refractory. Usually, bauxite ore is heated in a pressure vessel along with a sodium hydroxidesolution
