Combined tectonic and paleogeographic controls on the episodic production of bauxite in the Carboniferous to Permian island in central South China Block

Project

Two layers of bauxite, with a total reserve of 1.29 billion t, occur in the Lower Carboniferous and Lower Permian in the central South China Block. Different from other intracontinenal bauxites in China which are genetically linked to the orogenesis along the continental margin, these bauxites were generated in the absence of marginal orogenesis. This project study the genesis of these bauxites were from the perspective of tectonic, paleogeographic and paleoclimatic controls.
