Aluminium Geoscience AustraliaAluminium is all around youfrom everyday items such as a soft drink can to the aircraft flying overhead. Aluminium is one of the most useful materials known to man. It can be alloyed (mixed) with almost any other metal to create materials with useful properties. Metals alloyed with aluminium are all very strong yet lightweight, and resistant to rusting. After oxygen and silicon, aluminium is the third most abundant element in the Earth's crust (8.2%) and by far the most plentiful metal. Unlike metals such as copper, gold, lead, iron and zinc which have been used by humans for thousands of years, aluminium has only been in common use for a little over 100 years. This is because aluminum is never found in its pure state in nature. So while humans knew about aluminium compounds, they only discovered how to extract aluminium metal in the late 1800s. Aluminium can be extracted (uneconomically) from some clays but the most common aluminium ore is a material called bauxite. First the alum

Aluminium is a silverycoloured metal that is never found on its own in nature. It is very light (about one third the weight of copper) yet strongsome alloys are even stronger than steel. Aluminium is both malleable (can be pressed into shape) and ductile (can be beaten and drawn into a wire). Aluminium is a very good heat and electrical conductor. It is also is highly rustresistant, and is nontoxic. Aluminium can be alloyed with almost any other metal. Aluminium is inflammable, nonmagnetic and nonsparking. These properties have made it an important metal in the modern world. As aluminium is such a reactive metal, you might think it would rust badly and therefore be useless. However, pure aluminium reacts very quickly with air or water to form a thin, almost invisible layer of aluminium oxide on its surface, which then acts as a protective coating preventing any further 'rusting'.

Aluminium is smelted from alumina which is refined from bauxite ore. All three products have a number of uses. More than 90% of the world's bauxite production is used to make alumina with most of the remaining 10% used by the abrasive, refractory and chemical industries. Bauxite is also used in the production of highalumina cement, as an absorbent or catalyst by the oil industry, in welding rod coatings and as a flux in making steel and ferroalloys. Alumina's primary use is as feedstock for aluminium smelters, however it is also used for other industrial purposes. It is used in glass, porcelain and in metallic paints, such as those sprayed on cars. It is also used in the production of spark plug insulators, as a fuel component for solid rocket boosters, a filler for plastics, an abrasive (it is cheaper than industrial diamond) and in metal refineries where it is used to convert toxic hydrogen sulfide waste gases into elemental sulfur.

Around 5300 BC:The Persians made extra strong pots from clay containing aluminium oxide. Around 2000 BC:The ancient Egyptians and Babylonians used potassium aluminium sulphate KAl(SO4)2 as a medicine to reduce bleeding. It was sourced from naturally occurring deposits in Greece and Turkey. The ancient Romans called this medical compound alum, which is where we get the modern day word and symbol from. It is still used today to stop bleeding. Middle Ages:Most alum came from the Papal territory of Tolfa but the price fell dramatically when a large deposit of alum shale was discovered in Yorkshire in the early 1600s. Over the next centuries, alum was used in two main areas: as a preservative for paper and as a fixing agent for dying cloth. 1808:Englishman Sir Humphry Davy tried to extract aluminium through electrolysis.

Bauxite is the most common aluminium ore. Bauxite occurs as a weathered cover or blanket, known as laterite or duricrust, over a variety of aluminabearing rocks. It forms when large amounts of rainfall leach away the more mobile elements in the host rock leaving the relatively immobile aluminium with some silicon, iron and titanium. Because of the way it forms, bauxite deposits can be very extensive and are found on almost every continent. The main aluminium minerals in bauxite are gibbsite [Al(OH)3, also written as Al2O3.H2O in oxide notation], boehmite [AlO(OH), written as Al2O3.H2O in oxide notation] and diaspore, which is a polymorph (alternate form) of boehmite but is denser and harder. Pure alumina (Al2O3) contains 52.9% aluminium and 47.1% oxygen. Bauxite may be very hard or as soft as mud and may occur as compacted earth (both friable and recemented), small balls (pisolites), or hollow, twiglike material (tubules). Its colours may be buff, pink, yellow, red, or white, or

Bauxite ore contains sufficiently high levels of aluminium oxides and suitably low levels of iron oxide (Fe2O3) and silica (SiO2) to be economically mineable. The amount of reactive silica is particularly important as this form of silica consumes the caustic soda needed to make alumina, thus low reactive silica is desirable. Other potential sources of aluminium include a variety of rocks and minerals such as aluminous shale and slate, aluminium phosphate rock and highalumina clays. The world's largest economic bauxite resources occur in Guinea, Australia, Brazil, Vietnam and Jamaica. In Australia, bauxite is mined from established opencut operations at Weipa in Queensland, Gove in the Northern Territory and the Darling Range in Western Australia. In addition, new mines have recently begun operation in the Cape York region of Queensland and in central Tasmania. Other bauxite deposits occur in northern Western Australia, New South Wales and eastern Queensland but are currently uneco

Extraction of aluminium metal takes place in three main stages¿mining of bauxite ore, refining the ore to recover alumina and smelting alumina to produce aluminium. Bauxite is mined by surface methods (opencut mining) in which the topsoil and overburden are removed by bulldozers and scrapers. The topsoil is then stored and later used for revegetating and restoring the area after mining is completed. The underlying bauxite is mined by frontend loaders, power shovels or hydraulic excavators. Some bauxite ores are merely crushed, dried and shipped. Other bauxite is treated after crushing by washing to remove some of the clay, reactive silica and sand wasteand then dried in rotary kilns. The ore is loaded into trucks, railway cars or onto conveyor belts and transported to ships or refineries. A number of factors in the aluminium production cycle relate to the environment and considerable resources are allocated to minimise the impact of mining, refining and smelting on the surroundi

In almost all commercial operations, alumina is extracted from the bauxite by the Bayer refining process. The process, discovered by Karl Josef Bayer in 1888, consists of four stages. Digestion: the finely ground bauxite is fed into a steamheated unit called a digester. Here it is mixed, under pressure, with a hot solution of caustic soda. The aluminium oxide of the bauxite (and the reactive silica) reacts with the caustic soda forming a solution of sodium aluminate or green liquor and a precipitate of sodium aluminium silicate. Clarification: the green liquor or aluminabearing solution is separated from the waste¿the undissolved iron oxides and silica which were part of the original bauxite and now make up the sand and red mud waste. This stage involves three steps: firstly, the coarse sandsized waste is removed and washed to recover caustic sodasecondly, the red mud is separated outand, finally the remaining green liquor is pumped through filters to remove any residual impu
