Why purification of metals necessary?How we can purify the metals?
Metals are mainly used in industry due to their chemical and physical properties. For example, properties like electrical and thermal conductivity or density. Gold is used a lot in jewellery making because it is highly ductile and can be flattened into sheets that are REALLY thin. Of course, you don't find then in the ground like this usually and metal ores do not share the same properties as pure metals and are often more brittle and harder to work with. That's why we need to purify them.

Many metal ores are metal oxides so can be purified by reduction reactions. Metals are purified differently so you would need to research the specific purification techniques for the metal you are interested in. How this helps

Metals can be purified either by heating with carbon or electrolysis depending on their reactivity...
