The Process Of Mining Brass

Ancient Metallurgy University of California San

Brass is an alloy of copper with zinc and is usually made up of anywhere from ten to forty percent zinc Small amounts of other ores produce special purpose brass Tin and aluminum increase resistance to corrosion for example Zinc ore called calamine is difficult to mix with the copper ore however and brass appears later in the archaeological record as well as being far less common
