This book is based on the undergraduate and MSc courses in hydrometallurgy which Professor A R Burkin gave from 1961 until he retired in 1988. It is divided into two sections. The first deals with the fundamental chemical and physical principles on which the technology is based. In the second, processes which are used for the production of individual metals are described, in terms of those principles where appropriate.
