Bauxite — description and properties

The Republic of Guinea is located in Western Africa and shares borders with Senegal and Guinea-Bissau on the north, Mali on the north-east, Cote D'Ivoire on the east, and Sierra Leone and Liberia on the south.

Bauxite deposits in Guinea are amongst the biggest in the world. Their total capacity is estimated at 40 billion tons of ore which gives the country the first place amongst developed and developing nations.

Roughly 13% — 15% of the GDP of Guinea is comprised of mining gold, diamonds, bauxites, and iron ore. The country also has substantial deposits of silver, granite, and manganese.

Over 90% of world total deposits of bauxites are concentrated in 18 countries. It is not a coincidence that the best bauxite deposits are attached to so-called laterite formations produced by weathering of aluminosilicate rocks in a hot wet climate.

Bauxite was discovered and described by Pierre Berthier in 1821.

Name origin: based on the original place of mining in Beaux village in France.
