Alibaltalo bauxite deposit is situated in east Shahindezh, south west of west- Azarbaijan. This ore horizon lies along the boundary between Jurassic sandstone and Triassic dolomtite. In this study for understanding the chemical process involved in the formation of the bauxite deposite and in order to determine the role and behavior of elements on weathering process, the gain and loss and mass transfer methods, enrichment -depletion diagrams were used. the result of this study diabase sills of Doroud Formation in the area is proposed as the principal source of this bauxitic horizon.. Mass change calculations for different elements compared to an immobile element (Titanium)- with. chemical stability in weathering processes. Results showed Si, Na, K, Mg, Ca depletion while Fe, Al, Ti showed secondary enrichment.The ore body shows decreasing in total mass of -21.02 for brown horizon,-21.02 for gray kaolinite layer,-22.91 for green to gray part and -23.55 for green to gray color horizon.
