"ORES" in context

ORES are mineral-bearing rocks that have a relatively high concentration of one or more minerals that can be extracted. These minerals are called ore minerals, and they are mined to extract useful metals like copper, gold and aluminum. Ores are usually mined in large pits dug in the ground, and the ore is then processed to concentrate the minerals and separate them from the surrounding rock. Processing methods may include crushing and grinding, or roasting and leaching. The ore must then be separated from any waste materials and possible contaminants before the metal can be extracted.
