    2018 10 17ensp;0183;ensp;In the bauxite refining process, the aluminum bearing minerals in bauxite are converted in a multiple step process to alumina (Al2O3). Alumina can be smelted to form metallic aluminum or it can be used as the source of many other products, including refractory materials used to line high temperature rotary kilns and metallurgical furnaces.

    2018 11 2ensp;0183;ensp;A mineral is a naturally occurring chemical compound, usually of crystalline form and not produced by life processes.A mineral has one specific chemical composition, whereas a rock can be an aggregate of different minerals or mineraloids.The study of minerals is called mineralogy.. As of November 2018, there are more than 5,500 known mineral species; 5,389 of these have been approved by the

  • sedimentary rock Definition, Formation, Examples

    2018 11 3ensp;0183;ensp;Sedimentary rock, rock formed at or near the Earths surface by the accumulation and lithification of sediment (detrital rock) or by the precipitation from solution at normal surface temperatures (chemical rock). Sedimentary rocks are the most common rocks exposed on the Earths surface but are only a minor constituent of the entire crust, which is dominated by igneous and metamorphic rocks.

  • Weathering

    2018 11 1ensp;0183;ensp;Physical weathering. Physical weathering, also called mechanical weathering or disaggregation, is the class of processes that causes the disintegration of rocks without chemical change.The primary process in physical weathering is abrasion (the process by which clasts and other particles are reduced in size). However, chemical and physical weathering often go hand in hand.

Mafic Magma Magma that is relative poor in silica but rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron content. This type of magma solidifies to form rocks relatively rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron but poor in silica.
