Bauxite - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The residues from the bauxite production in Jamaica contain more than two times REEs (2000–3000 ppm), which are in particular, enriched in scandium (150 ppm) than the original bauxite (Wagh and Pinnock, 1987). Thus, there is a potential to produce REEs from red mud as by-product of alumina, which is explored by the Jamaica Bauxite Institute.
