Bauxite South32

Bauxite is an aluminium ore found in deposits around the world. Once the ore is mined out of the ground, the red bauxite rock is crushed and dissolved into a white alumina powder, using what is known as the Bayer process. This alumina powder is then smelted into aluminium metal. Australia is the world’s largest producers of bauxite.
