Bauxite is the main raw material for the production of metallic aluminium. The majority of the world bauxite resources belongs to the lateritic bauxite deposits. This book provides the first comprehensive geologic-genetic and economic evaluation of these deposits on a world-wide scale. The authors of this book spent most of their life in bauxite exploration and in scientific bauxite research. This volume presents both their scientific and practical experiences, complete with all available information on the deposits.The understanding of the text is facilitated by a glossary, explaining the special terms used in the book. The book contains a great number of photographs, both coloured and black and white, tables and maps. An extensive bibliography, list of localities, index of names and subjects are included.
