This book contains information about how main base metals are made, what everyone especially metallurgists, chemists, process and mine engineers should know about their elaboration from the mine to the metallic state. This book is already used by several applied sciences department and engineering schools and universities in the world. Processes are clearly explained and described with more than 100 flow-sheets, sketches and graphs. This book contains common and up-to-date extraction processes and will fill the will to know of many, it will help to have in hand the essential on extractive metallurgy of base metals and some strategic ones. This book is written in a clear and understandable way by an experienced metallurgist engineer and can be read by focusing straight on a particular metallurgy as it is developed metal by metal. All processes are different even if some are similar, you have better to go through to learn or refresh yourself. Roger Rumbu, Met. Eng., P.P.M.

A completely revised and up-to-date edition containing comprehensive industrial data. The many significant changes which occurred during the 1980s and 1990s are chronicled. Modern high intensity smelting processes are presented in detail, specifically flash, Contop, Isasmelt, Noranda, Teniente and direct-to-blister smelting. Considerable attention is paid to the control of SO2 emissions and manufacture of H2SO4. Recent developments in electrorefining, particularly stainless steel cathode technology are examined. Leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning are evaluated together with their impact upon optimizing mineral resource utilization. The volume targets the recycling of copper and copper alloy scrap as an increasingly important source of copper and copper alloys. Copper quality control is also discussed and the book incorporates an important section on extraction economics. Each chapter is followed by a summary of concepts previously described and offers suggested further reading and references.

This book describes and explains the methods by which three related ores and recyclables are made into high purity metals and chemicals, for materials processing. It focuses on present day processes and future developments rather than historical processes. Nickel, cobalt and platinum group metals are key elements for materials processing. They occur together in one book because they (i) map together on the periodic table (ii) occur together in many ores and (iii) are natural partners for further materials processing and materials manufacturing. They all are, for example, important catalysts - with platinum group metals being especially important for reducing car and truck emissions. Stainless steels and CoNiFe airplane engine super alloys are examples of practical usage. The product emphasises a sequential, building-block approach to the subject gained through the author's previous writings (particularly Extractive Metallurgy of Copper in four editions) and extensive experience. Due to the multiple metals involved and because each metal originates in several types of ore - e.g. tropical ores and arctic ores this necessitates a multi-contributor work drawing from multiple networks and both engineering and science. Synthesizes detailed review of the fundamental chemistry and physics of extractive metallurgy with practical lessons from industrial consultancies at the leading international plants Discusses Nickel, Cobalt and Platinum Group Metals for the first time in one book Reviews extraction of multiple metals from the same tropical or arctic ore Industrial, international and multidisciplinary focus on current standards of production supports best practice use of industrial resources

The Book Attempts To Present A Comprehensive View Of Extractive Metallurgy, Especially Principles Of Extractive Metallurgy In A Concise Form. This Is The First Book In This Area Which Attempts To Do It. It Has Been Written In Textbook Style. It Presents The Various Concepts Step By Step, Shows Their Importance, Deals With Elementary Quantitative Formulations, And Illustrates Through Quantitative And Qualitative Informations. The Approach Is Such That Even Undergraduate Students Would Be Able To Follow The Topics Without Much Difficulty And Without Much Of A Background In Specialized Subjects. This Is Considered To Be A Very Useful Approach In This Area Of Technology. Moreover The Inter-Disciplinary Nature Of The Subject Has Been Duely Brought Out.While Teaching Concerned Course(S) In The Undergraduate And Postgraduate Level The Authors Felt The Need Of Such A Book. The Authors Found The Books Available On The Subject Did Not Fulfill The Requirements. No Other Book Was Concerned With All Relevant Concepts. Most Of Them Laid Emphasis Either On Thermodynamic Aspects Or On Discussing Unit Processes. Transport Phenomena Are Dealt With In Entirely Different Books. Reactor Concepts Were Again Lying In Chemical Engineering Texts. The Authors Tried To Harmonize And Synthesize The Concepts In Elementary Terms For Metallurgists.The Present Book Contains A Brief Descriptive Summary Of Some Important Metallurgical Unit Processes. Subsequently It Discusses Not Only Physical Chemistry Of Metallurgical Reactions And Processes But Also Rate Phenomena Including Heat And Mass Transfer, Fluid Flow, Mass And Energy Balance, And Elements Of Reactor Engineering. A Variety Of Scientific And Engineering Aspects Of Unit Processes Have Been Discussed With Stress On The Basic Principles All Throughout. There Is An Attempt To Introduce, As Much As Possible, Quantitative Treatments And Engineering Estimates. The Latter May Often Be Approximate From The Point Of View Of Theory But Yields Results That Are Very Valuable To Both Practicing Metallurgists As Well As Others.

Rather than simply describing the processes and reactions involved in metal extraction, this book concentrates on fundamental principles to give readers an understanding of the possibilities for future developments in this field. It includes a review of the basics of thermodynamics, kinetics and engineering principles that have special importance for extractive metallurgy, to ensure that readers have the background necessary for maximum achievement. The various metallurgical unit processes (such as roasting, reduction, smelting and electrolysis) are illustrated by existing techniques for the extraction of the most common metals. Each chapter includes a bibliography of recommended reading, to aid in further study. The appendices include tables and graphs of thermodynamic qualities for most substances of metallurgical importance; these are ideal for calculating heat (enthalpy) balances and chemical equilibrium constants. SI Units are used consistently throughout the text.

The aim of each volume of this series Guides to Information Sources is to reduce the time which needs to be spent on patient searching and to recommend the best starting point and sources most likely to yield the desired information. The criteria for selection provide a way into a subject to those new to the field and assists in identifying major new or possibly unexplored sources to those who already have some acquaintance with it. The series attempts to achieve evaluation through a careful selection of sources and through the comments provided on those sources.

Extract all the metals information you need! A wealth of data on metals and their extraction is revealed in this comprehensive handbook. The aim of this book is to provide a clear description of how a particular metal is extracted industrially from different raw materials, and on what its important compounds are. The present work is a collection of 58 articles written by over 280 specialists. It supplies thousands of top-quality illustrations, diagrams and charts, and provides hand-picked references ensuring the most up-to-date coverage. A unique feature of this reference work is its structure. The system used here is according to an economic classification, which reflects mainly the uses, occurrence and economic value of metals. First, the ferrous metals, i.e., those used in the production of iron and steel, are outlined. Then, nonferrous metals are subdivided into primary, secondary, light, precious, refractory, scattered, radioactive, rare earth, ferroalloy metals, and, finally, the alkali and the alkaline earth metals are described. The handbook is an essential aid for the practising metallurgist. Mining engineers, mineralogists, chemical engineers, chemists and geologists will find it a comprehensive desk reference. It is of interest to engineers and scientists in industry seeking an exhaustive sourcebook, and it should be present in every library.
