In engineering applications, the classifications of ore quality are significant since this form of application plays a key role in the use of ore in industry. This study determines the quality of Minim-Martap bauxite ore based on the modulus. The modulus of Al2O3/SiO2 was used for this classification. First of all, the composition of the bauxite was determined and the correlation between the contents was considered. The analysis was optimized by introducing iterations, and the correlation between the contents was revealed using the regression analysis. Then, the modulus classification and/or quality of bauxite was determined using the inequality expressions.

Keywords: Optimization, inequality expressions, bauxite quality classification, bauxite modulus (Al2O3/SiO2), regression analysis, applied mathematics
