THE EXTRACTION OF METALS - AN INTRODUCTION. This page looks at the various factors which influence the choice of method for extracting metals from their ores, including reduction by carbon, reduction by a reactive metal like sodium or magnesium, and by electrolysis. Details for the extraction of aluminium, copper, iron and titanium are given in separate pages in this section.
The Extraction Of Metals An Introduction
Sep 05, 2013 Reduction by electrolysis. This is a common extraction process for the more reactive metals - for example, for aluminium and metals above it in the electrochemical series. You may also come across it in other cases such as one method of extracting copper and in the purification of copper.

Socioenvironmental Impacts Of Lithium Mineral Extraction
Nov 27, 2018 The processing of lithium mining involves evaporation of brines and washing the mineral with sodium carbonate in large-scale polyvinyl chloride PVC-lined shallow ponds. A failure in of PVC barriers may leak chemical substances such as softeners into the environment and cause water pollution Wanger 2011. The consequences for human health and ...
Displacement reactions. Displacement reactions involve a metal and a compound of a different metal. In a displacement reaction a more reactive metal will displace. a less reactive metal from its ...
