This paper will be confined to the processes by which zinc is recovered. In discussing the unit processes and operations, I shall first give a general view of the process and why it is necessary. Next, I shall analyze the process in terms of metallurgy and thermodynamics, showing by calculation, where necessary, certain facts that could not be suitably explained without a knowledge of the fundamental principles of extractive metallurgy.
