Choice (4) Response
a.

Calcination

b.

Smelting

c.

Roasting

d.

Froth Flotation

Answer

a.

Explanation

Calcination is the process in which an ore is heated to a high temperature In the absence of air. Usually carbonate ores or ores containing water are calcined to drive out carbon and moisture impurities.

  2. All metals are solid In state
  3. Metals are not ductile.
  4. Metals are generally shiny

Choices

Choice (4) Response
a.

2) and 3)

b.

3) and 4)

c.

Only 3)
