Adsorption has been proved to be the best process of water treatment because of its significant advantages. Clays and their minerals are abundant and cheap material successfully used for decades as an adsorbent for removing toxic heavy metals from aqueous solutions.
Every segment of society uses minerals and mineral resources everyday. The roads we ride or drive on and the buildings we live learn and work in all contain minerals. Below is a selected list of commonly used metallic and nonmetallic minerals, ore minerals, mineral byproducts, aggregates, and rock ...

Copper is widely distributed in Australia in rocks of Precambrian and Palaeozoic age (more than 250 million years old). Australia's resources of copper are largely at the Olympic Dam copper-uranium-gold deposit in South Australia and the Mount Isa copper-lead-zinc deposit in Queensland.
Australia's iron ore reserves and resources are in both hematite and magnetite ores. Because of the high average grades (% Fe) of hematite ores when compared to the average grades for magnetite ores, it is necessary to report national resources in terms of contained iron.
Chemical analysis in weight parts per million, extracted from NASA SP-428. There are many other minerals which occur in lunar material in lower abundance, and some are exotic, but a more expansive coverage of this topic is beyond the scope of this book.
The process of extracting copper from copper ore varies according to the type of ore and the desired purity of the final product. Each process consists of several steps in which unwanted materials are physically or chemically removed, and the concentration of copper is progressively increased.
