The method used to extract a metal from its ore depends on the
reactivity of the metal.
Most K
reactive Na Very reactive metals ­ extracted using
Ca electrolysis
Fe More reactive metals ­ usually extracted by
reduction ­ heating with carbon to remove
Ag Unreactive metals ­ little or no
Au extraction needed
reactive Pt
