Extraction of Zinc - Zinc is extracted through carbon reduction of the ore Zinc blende (ZnS) ore by specially designed blast furnaces. The process contains the following steps. 1. Concentration of the ore by froth floatation method - The ore is kept in a large tank containing water and pine oil. The mixture is agitated by compressed air.

Cadmium: processing; Mining and beneficiation; Cadmium is mainly a byproduct of beneficiating and refining of zinc metal from sulfide ore concentrates. The mined zinc ores are crushed and ground to liberate the zinc sulfide particles from the waste host rock.
Zinc processing: Zinc processing, the extraction of zinc from its ores and the preparation of zinc metal or chemical compounds for use in various products. Zinc (Zn) is a metallic element of hexagonal close-packed (hcp) crystal structure and a density of 7.13 grams per cubic centimetre.
