Beneficiation, Extraction and Metallurgical Processes is the second of two courses on extractive metallurgy by the author, written for university students as well as practicing engineers and metallurgists. Extractive metallurgy deals with ores as raw material and metals as finished products. Metallurgy has been transformed into a modern science as a result of developments in chemistry and chemical engineering. This series of courses is an introduction to the subject based in part on a course offered by the American Chemical Society under the title Metallurgical Chemistry.

The full series includes...

  • Metals, Ore Deposits and Minerals
  • Beneficiation, Extraction and Metallurgical Processes

Beneficiation, Extraction and Metallurgical Processes covers liberation and separation of minerals, extractive processes including pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy, electrometallurgy, and the theory of metallurgical processes including oxidation and reduction, hydration and hydrolysis, and the energetics and kinetics of reactions.
