Mineral processing is a technique to separate the valuable minerals from waste rock by treating crude ores and mineral products. The major operations carried out in processing are sampling, analysis and dewatering. Final product obtained from mineral processing can be of high grade taken directly into metal extraction, such as iron ore into iron and steel. In some cases it becomes necessary to concentrate the ore into intermediate product and subjected to extractive processes to recover the purified metal.
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
