Laterites are soil types rich in iron and aluminium, formed in hot and wet tropical areas. Nearly all laterites are rusty-red because of iron oxides. They develop 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.

Laterites are a source of aluminium ore; the ore exists largely in clay minerals and thehydroxides, gibbsite, boehmite, and diaspore, which resembles the

composition of bauxite. a major source of iron and aluminium ores. Laterite ores also were the early major source of nickel.
