Tailings are the materials left over after the process of separating the valuable fraction from the uneconomic fraction of an ore.Tailings are distinct from overburden, which is the waste rock or other material that overlies an ore or mineral body and is displaced during mining without being processed.. The extraction of minerals from ore can be done two ways placer mining, which

This paper brings an innovative processing route of manganese deepsea nodules, which results in completely new grades of alloys. Deepsea nodules were processed by aluminothermic method without the extraction of individual elements, producing complexly alloyed manganesebased natural alloys. Three levels of the amount of aluminum were used for the aluminothermic

Deep sea mining
Deep sea mining is a mineral retrieval process that takes place on the ocean floor.Ocean mining sites are usually around large areas of polymetallic nodules or active and extinct hydrothermal vents at 1,400 to 3,700 metres (4,600 to 12,100 ft) below the oceans surface. The vents create globular or massive sulfide deposits, which contain valuable metals such as silver, gold,
