Laterite

Laterite is soil type rich in iron, formed in hot and wet tropical areas. Laterite is rusty-red in colour because of iron oxides. It is developed by intensive and long-lasting weathering of the underlying parent rock. Tropical weathering (laterization) is a prolonged process of chemical weathering which produces a wide variety in the thickness, grade, chemistry and ore mineralogy of the resulting soils
We supply Laterite from Mines near Choti Sadri in Pratapagrh district of Rajasthan. Presently this mineral is being used in Cement Plants in bulk quantities.However, high grade Laterite (Haematitic ore ) can have Fe2O3 up to 65 % and it can also be used for extraction of Iron(Fe) from it. . It is supplied in loose form, loaded in covered Trucks.

Following is the specification of Laterite supplied by us:-

SiO2 - 20 % max
Al2O3 - 0 - 5  %
Fe2O3 - 55-65 %
