Zinc is a chemical element with symbol Zn and atomic number 30. It is the first element in group 12 of the periodic table.In some respects zinc is chemically similar to magnesium: both elements exhibit only one normal oxidation state (+2), and the Zn 2+ and Mg 2+ ions are of similar size.
Practical Geostatistics (1979) was the third (and probably shortest) book ever published on geostatistics. Based on 7 years of teaching technical valuation to undergraduate and postgraduate mining engineers, examples were drawn from the author's consultancy experience.
The physical properties of Transition Metals like density, melting points, boiling points, strength are described and discussed along with a description of the important transition metal chemical properties of e.g. titanium, vanadium, manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper and zinc.
