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

2009-8-1  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.

(PDF) Reduction of Reactive Silica from Bauxite ...

The conventional process of bauxite ore dressing consists on the removal of natural mud through the steps of crushing, semi-autogenous grinding, crumble in trommel, followed by the removal of the fine fraction (-37 µm) by screening or classification in hydrocyclone and thickening [1, 2], though this process does not remove all the reactive silica.

mud are both related to the quality of bauxite used in the refining process. In general, the lower the Al2O3 content of bauxite, the larger the volume of red mud that will be generated, as the non-Al2O3 phases are rejected as red mud. In addition, the higher the kaolinite or reactive silica content of bauxite, the more red mud will be generated ...
