Both involve reduction.

i have already spoken of these do you know any more



High
temperature is produced




both metals usually come as
oxide-rich ores that must be reduced.




both titanium and iron are found
in their ores mainly as oxides (TiO₂ and Fe₂O₃, respectively)

I think iron reduction is endothermic, so high T is not produced, it is required though.
Your 3rd point doesn't address you Q... it is not a similarity in the way... they are extracted. It is a description of the ores.

Not good ones. The processes are really very different.

Iron uses coal and limestone heated with the ore.
Ti uses conversion to TiCl4, then reduction with Na or Mg in an Argon atmosphere.

They really couldn't be much different.

They are both done on an industrial scale is about the best I can think of.
