Domestic saprolites as potential substitutes for refractory-grade bauxite.
Ind Eng Chem Res 1987 Jan; 26(1):7-11
This paper evaluates saprolites and gibbsitic sands of the southeastern United States as potential sources of substitute refractory-grade bauxite (rgb). Material from this area did not prove promising either in quantity or quality, and the production methods necessary to produce rgb would be expensive compared with those employed in Guyana or China, the current principal suppliers to the United States.
