Extractive Metallurgy Extractive Metallurgy is the art of separating, refining, and recycling metal. The extraction of metals from metal ores has been known to early humans. Metal extraction processes in ancient times were trial and error methods. Gold and copper were the first metals to be used. Because it is found in pure form in nature.
The purpose of this course is to train specialists who are experts in the field of metal extraction and education and research in this field and can study problems and solve them in the metal production industry and be efficient in technology transfer. Due to the importance and expansion of Metal production industries in the country, including the production of steel, copper, lead, zinc and aluminum, as well as ferroalloys, the metal extraction course in this specialized field has been established by examining the scientific foundations and technology of metal production processes and research.
Summary of this course:
Extractive metallurgy is one of the trends in materials engineering. Which is offered in eight semesters at the undergraduate level, in universities. Contrary to popular belief, mining metallurgy has no role in extracting materials from the mine. Rather, this stage is related to mining engineering. The specialized department of extractive metallurgy in separating pure material from impure materials. Who came out of the mine and came to the factory.
An extractive metallurgical engineer must be proficient in the principles of separating metals from impurities. To be able to spend the least cost, maximum efficiency in the metal separation process in the shortest time, possible. Metal extraction is divided into two general groups according to its processes: thermal metallurgy and water metallurgy. The principles of thermal metallurgy are based on melting and aqueous metallurgy is based on the mineral solution. Most metals in nature are in the form of oxides, sulfides, chlorides and carbonates. The most important step in separating these metals from their ores is their chemical reduction.
What you will learn in the virtual metal mining training course:
Write general and specific chemical equations in multiple reactions.
Prerequisites for the metal extraction training course:
This course does not require any special prerequisites and is taught from the ground up.
