Abstract

Considerable bauxite deposits were discovered in
Tasmania towards the end of 1941.
The purpose of this investigation was to carry out
analyses of representative samples from the Ouse and
Swansea deposits and to discover to what extent the Bayer
Process was suitable for the extraction of alumina from
the Ouse bauxite.
This thesis embodies details of the above two aspects
together with outlines of the methods of analyses enployed.
Preliminary work on the dry extraction process using sodium
carbonate is also included.
Analyses of four samples of clay. occurring in the
immediate vicinity of the Ouse deposits are listed in the
Appendix.
