Extractive metallurgy -a branch of metallurgical engineering is about the study of processes and methods of extraction of valuable metals from their natural mineral deposits and refining the extracted raw metals into a purer form. It covers all aspects of the life cycle of ores such as washing, concentration, separation, chemical processes, and extraction of pure metal and their alloying to suit various applications, for direct use as an end product. This eLearning course focuses on the theoretical and practical aspects of the extraction of nonferrous metals. This course will help students to learn about the discovery of metals and their importance, uses of nonferrous metals, exploration methods, methods of beneficiation, principles of metals extraction, general methods of extraction, etc.
