Abstract

The Parnassus-Giona karst bauxite deposits contain significant concentrations of rare earth elements (400-500 ppm). Preliminary results from a pilot leaching study show that between 19 and 47% of rare earth elements in the bauxite are easily leachable using ion exchange agents such as ammonium sulphate.
