Smelting

Smelting is a process of applying heat to ore in order to extract a base metal.It is a form of extractive metallurgy.It is used to extract many metals from their ores, including silver, iron, copper, and other base metals.Smelting uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to decompose the ore, driving off other elements as gases or slag and leaving the metal base behind.

What Aluminum Extraction Really Does to the Environment

Nov 09, 2010Of all the earth's natural elements, aluminum happens to be the third most abundant resource on our planet in its raw form. With rather humble origins as a soft, red, mineral-laden rock called bauxite, highly valuable aluminum ore contains boehmite, diaspore and gibbsite as well as clay, iron hydroxides and free silica.

Copper Mining and Processing: Processing of Copper Ores

Copper processing is a complicated process that begins with mining of the ore (less than 1% copper) and ends with sheets of 99.99% pure copper called cathodes, which will ultimately be made into products for everyday use.The most common types of ore, copper oxide and copper sulfide, undergo two different processes, hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy, respectively, due to the different

Iron ore

Lower-grade sources of iron ore generally require beneficiation, using techniques like crushing, milling, gravity or heavy media separation, screening, and silica froth flotation to improve the concentration of the ore and remove impurities. The results, high-quality fine ore powders, are known as fines. Magnetite. Magnetite is magnetic, and hence easily separated from the gangue minerals and
