all ores are minerals but all minerals are not ores.justify
this statement is true that all ores are minerals but all minerals are not ores. minerals are natuaral substance which occurs natuarally. but ores are obtained from mineral rocks which have a high concentration of a particular metal. that is we obtain ores from minerals easily and profitably.
hope this will help you!
It is so because metals cannot be extracted from minerals in a convenient way. E.g.:- Aluminum metal is found in both minerals: clay and bauxite. Aluminum metal is extracted only from bauxite in a convenient way. So, bauxite is an ore of aluminum. On the other hand, it is not extracted from clay so clay remains only as mineral not ore of aluminum.
Minerals are those substance that occur naturally in the earth's crust whereas those minerals which have high percentage of a particular metal and from which metal can be extracted profitably are called ores. Hence , All ores are called minerals. But, metals cannot be extracted from all minerals profitably. Only some minerals have a high concentration of the metal. Therefore all minerals are not ores.
Definition of mineral- any naturally occurring form of element.
Ore- any mineral from which metal can be commercially extracted.
