There are various industrial applications of metal & mineral since wide range of manufacturing processes depend upon these materials. Apart from these uses both are used for manufacturing daily use products such as kitchen utensils, ornaments and pastes. Some of the commonly used metals and minerals include iron, aluminum, mercury, bronze, gold, silver and various alloys. These can be either used in solid state or in molten or powder form for various industrial processes.

Mining of Minerals

Minerals are usually obtained by mining processes and there are various types of mining techniques which are used for extracting these materials. The mining process is divided as surface and sub surface mining type and among these the surface type mining is very popular. More than 85 percent of minerals are extracted with the help of surface type of mining. In surface mining bed rock layers, dirt and surface vegetation is removed by the method of stripping. Mountaintop removal, strip mining, landfill mining and quarrying are some of the popular techniques associated with surface mining. Bulldozers, explosives, trucks, drills and other heavy machineries are used for mineral mining. The extracted minerals are then processed to remove the impurities and then these are supplied to various industries for different manufacturing processes.

Extraction and Purification of Metals

Metals are extracted with the help of specialized machines and are purified with the help of various methods. The specific gravity of ores is considered for separating various types of metals with the help of gravity separation. In order to remove impurities which are magnetic in nature, we usually use electromagnetic separation techniques. Other than these processes, froth floatation, calcination, roasting and leaching processes are used for purification of various metals.

Purchasing

One can purchase pure metal & mineral directly from manufacturing companies or from the suppliers. Most of these companies and suppliers have their official websites from where one can get information about these materials. One can even place their order through these websites and get these materials delivered to their place within a stipulated time and for a reasonable shipping charge.
