concentrated lead ore is fed into a sintering machine with iron, silica, limestone fluxes, coke, soda ash, pyrite, zinc, caustics or pollution control particulates. smelting uses suitable reducing substances that will combine with those oxidizing elements to free the metal. reduction is the final, high-temperature step in smelting. it is here .
ore mills generate large amounts of waste, called tailings. for example, 99 tons of waste are generated per ton of copper, with even higher ratios in gold mining – because only 5.3 g of gold is extracted per ton of ore, a ton of gold produces 200,000 tons of tailings. as time goes on and richer deposits are exhausted – and technology .
