Ferrous metallurgy is the metallurgy of iron and alloys.It began far back in prehistory.The earliest surviving iron artifacts from the 4th millennium BC in Egypt were made from meteoritic iron-nickel. It is not known when or where the smelting of iron from ores began but by the end of the 2nd millennium BC iron was being produced from iron ores from at least Greece to India and more ...

Currently there is considerable concern over the availability of iron ore. China is taking all that it can get to feed its voracious steel industry and Chinese companies are seeking overseas purchases so far as with Chinalco and Rio Tinto with not a lot of success although Baosteel has acquired a stake in Aquila Resources.
Smelting is a process of applying heat to ore in order to extract a base metal. 1 It is a form of extractive metallurgy.It is used to extract many metals from their ores including silver iron copper and other base metals.Smelting uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to decompose the ore driving off other elements as gases or slag and leaving the metal base behind.
According to the latest figures from the US Geological Survey USGS in 2014 the EU accounts for the following shares in the global mining outputs: titanium ore 8.9 % silver 7.1 % zinc 5.2 % lead 3.9 % copper 3.7 % nickel 2.7 % tungsten 2.5 % iron ore 1.3
Aside from gold and copper the country is also rich in iron ore reserves of almost 300 million metric tons. To further promote investments in the mining of metals the Philippine government allowed 100 percent foreign ownership of large-scale mines subject to certain terms and conditions in the hope of attracting quality operators and ensuring a steady output of metals.
The advancements made in mining equipment such as those achieved at General Kinematics along with mining technology progress have resulted in growth and production in the copper mining industry. From primitive cumbersome mining methods to compact efficient modern-day equipment copper mining has become a cost-effective efficient process.
