|Abstract:||Bauxite is an aluminum-rich end product of soil weathering under certain conditions of favorable drainage in tropical regions. The ore is thus concentrated at the surface and its mining entails stripping the soil for some depth. Any stripmining brings with it a danger of devaluating the land by exposing subsoil and compacting its surface. Prior to mining, methods of restoration of the exposed subsoil should thus be studied. To this end, experimental work was started on t e island of Kauai on a site which appeared promising as a first area to be min ed .|
