Maintenance, Metallurgy and Mining

CIM Bulletin, 1960

THE DICTIONARY defines Metallurgy as the "science or art of separating metals from their ores and refining them for use". In these days, however, such a definition is not detailed enough. The modern science of metallurgy is based on two fundamental sciences, physics .and chemistry, and is sub-divided into two major fields: Process Metallurgy and Physical Metallurgy. These fields of metallurgy are now so comprehensive and involved that even the graduate metallurgist has to specialize in one or the other.
