The object of this investigation is the application of "Amalgam Metallurgy" to the extraction of copper from its ores. "Amalgam Metallurgy" as defined by Hohn is the use of liquid mercury in the extraction of metals. The ore under study was from the Kelly Mine in Butte, Montana and contains about 1.0% copper of which about 0.1% is acid soluble.
