General Principles and Processes of Isolation of Elements (Part-1)

A naturally occurring inorganic solid, whose chemical composition is definite, and having an  ordered atomic arrangement is called as mineral. This may seem a bit of a mouthful, but if you break it down it becomes simpler. In the same way we can define one more basic term like an ore. A type of rock that contains minerals with important elements including metals is called as ore.

A naturally occurring inorganic solid, whose chemical composition is definite, and having an ordered atomic arrangement is termed as mineral. This may seem a bit of a mouthful, but if you break it down it becomes simpler. In the same way we can define one more basic term like an ore. A type of rock that contains minerals with important elements including metals is called as ore. The process of metallurgy and isolation should be such that it is chemically feasible and commercially viable. Still, some general principles are common to all the extraction processes of metals. For obtaining a particular metal, first we look for minerals which are naturally occurring chemical substances in the earth’s crust obtainable by mining. Out of many minerals in which a metal may be found, only a few are viable to be used as sources of that metal. Such minerals are known as ores.
