Aluminum Smelting Furnaces and Processing of Bauxite Ore

The smelting of aluminum begins with the extraction of bauxite ore by a form of open cast mining. The bauxite is washed and screened before being converted to alumina, a white powdery element from which the aluminum is produced. Aluminum smelting is carried out in a Hall Heroult reduction cell, which is lined with carbon. A mix of alumina and cryolite is fed into the cell and carbon blocks

Reading Effects of Mining Geology Lumen Learning

After mining finishes, the mine area must undergo rehabilitation. Waste dumps are contoured to flatten them out, to further stabilise them. If the ore contains sulfides it is usually covered with a layer of clay to prevent access of rain and oxygen from the air, which can oxidise the sulfides to produce sulfuric acid, a phenomenon known as acid mine drainage.
