Bauxite mining is generally a relatively shallow, surface mining operation which removes a near surface 2-10 m layer of aluminium-rich material (Bardossy and Aleva 1990; Hickman et al. 1992). Bauxite develops over almost all types of geology but over one-third of the world's bauxite is formed on sedimentary rocks. Lateritic bauxite comprises 85 % of the total world tonnage of bauxite mined ...
The resources of bauxite in the United States, primarily in Arkansas, are calculated to be 300 to 325 million short tons (Baumgardner, 1989). An in- crease in world demand, combined with production levies, nationalization of many foreign bauxite mining operations, and cartels among alumina producers, however, has placed
Bauxite mining in Kuantan, Pahang started in early 2013 with small-scale mining in Balok and later expanded to Bukit Goh, Bukit Sagu and Sungai Karang. The rapid expansion, from 343,000 tonnes to 3.72 million tonnes from January to September 2015, coupled with uncontrolled and unsustainable legal and illegal mining activities has resulted in an environmental disaster.
