Top 10 Ways to Make Mines More Environmentally Friendly

Apr 29, 2014While sustainable mining looks good on stone and seems easy enough to follow provincial or federal guidelines, the industry has a way to go before it can be considered even remotely green. For example, aluminum can be substituted as a recyclable material rather than using bauxite ore, which is a rarer and less reusable item.

Bauxite The Aluminum Association

ResourcesEnvironmentFutureDiscoveryBauxite ore is the worlds primary source of aluminum. The ore must first be chemically processed to produce alumina (aluminum oxide). Alumina is then smelted using an electrolysis process to produce pure aluminum metal. Bauxite is typically found in topsoil located in various tropical and subtropical regions. The ore is acquired through environmentally responsible strip-mining operations. Bauxite reserves are most plentiful in Africa, Oceania and South America. Reserves are projected to last for ce
