An ore is a natural occurrence of rock or sediment that contains sufficient minerals with economically important elements, typically metals, that can be economically extracted from the deposit The ores are extracted at a profit from the earth through mining; they are then refined (often via smelting) to extract the valuable element or elements...
Ore is rock that contains economic amounts of a particular element, eg gold ore, iron ore, molybdenum ore, or praseodimium ore In contrast, rock that is not judged to contain economic quantities of an element is categorized as waste rock The metals in ore can occur in many different minerals (compounds) in the rock As an example, copper occurs in more than 50 minerals...
The barren rock, or gangue has to be separated from the sulfide minerals in order to smelt the metallic copper from the ore By far the greatest proportion of copper is extracted from the sulfides of copper, iron and sometimes other metals Such ores originate from sulfur-bearing volcanic magmas, which have separated into metal sulfides and siliceous melts...
