Metallurgy is a domain of materials science and engineering that studies the physical and chemical behaviour of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures whilst minerals are solid substances that are present in nature and can be made of one element or more elements combined together. Minerals are most commonly associated with rocks due to their presence within rocks. Examples of minerals include calcium, sodium, iron, zinc, potassium, and magnesium.

Metallurgy is the field of science that deals with the extraction of metals from ores that are naturally found in the environment. Most of the elements especially metals are presently combined with other elements and these are called minerals.
Metallurgy and minerals processing is devoted to scientific, engineering, and economic aspects of the preparation, separation, extraction, and purification of ores, metals, and mineral products by both physical and chemical methods.
The department of Metallurgy and Mineral Processing at the University of Zambia has been a home for pioneering excellent teaching and research for well over thirty-five (35) years, with our graduates becoming leaders in both academia and industry.
Technological metallurgy is the industry where metal parts are designed and manufactured. Mineral processing is a set of processes for mineral raw materials' primary processing, which result in the separation of all valuable minerals from the waste rock, as well as mutual separation of valuable minerals.
Minerals are naturally occurring inorganic solids with a crystalline structure and a definite range of chemical formulas. Ores are concentrations of minerals in rock that are high enough to be economically extracted for use.
Milling, sometimes also known as fine grinding, pulverising or comminution, is the process of reducing materials to a powder of fine or very fine size. It is distinct from crushing or granulation, which involves size reduction to a rock, pebble or grain size.
Mineral processing is the art of treating crude ores and mineral products in order to separate the valuable minerals from the waste rock or gangue. It is the first process that most ores undergo after mining in order to provide a more concentrated material for the procedures of extractive metallurgy.
