THE ROMANCE OF THE METALS
(Canadian Chemistry and Metallurgy)
HISTORY has been fairly generous
te the metals. They have been the friendly aids of man for such vast periods that
some of our earliest records are concerned
with their uses and preparation.
AS a stimulus to exploration and colonization, they have been large factors in
the chase of European and Mediterranean
nations over the whole globe.    About all
this, a wonderful series of romances could
be written.    There are metals that lure
man on.   He can never discover enough
to satisfy himself.    We are still chasing
gold and platinum, without any apparent
catching up.   Our appetite for silver may
at times become fairly well satisfied. Silver
has suffered a decline since 1500 B. C,
when it was more to be desired than gold.
The metal mercury has caused possibly
more investigations of a type than any
other.   It remained a wonderful mystery
for thousands of years and was the basis
of much alchemistric speculation.
THE history of the largely used met-j
als has been much the same.    Discovery
has been followed by long periods of slow
development.   At times, it appeared as if
a given metar was doomed to play a minor
part forever.     But,   almost always, its
place ia found.   Aluminium has a history
and a brilliant future.     Even platinum
waa a "nuisance", when the Spaniards first
found it mixed with gold in the West Indies.   Tungsten was in the same state 25
years ago.   Nickel was a great drawback
to the production of copper from Sudbury
Reading ores, until it was realized that nature had
given to Canada a wonderful and unique
source of riches.   Magnesium, cadmium,
bismuth, tellurium, are still to find their
place in a big way.   Cobalt has branched
out since its discovery.    Elwood Haynes
took the matter in hand, and now cobalt
is well beyond any possibility that it will
ever be allowed to go back to its former
state of idleness.   In fact, it is a habit
among metals to remain necessities once
their place is found.
IT is hard to conceive of a world where
iron was a rare metal, and yet man had
advanced to a relatively complicated civilization before iron was known. Egypt
never really knew iron and it was still rare
during her most famous periods.
FOR readers who are metallurgists
or chemists, it is not necessary to review
well-known facts regarding the technical
history of the development of individual
metals. But, at times they should realize
in a broad way the wonderful progress that
has been made, so that ne,w visions, dreams
if you like, may be created. From such
fountains of inspiration may be secured a
further stimulation to more concentrated
applications of research, that will find
some useful work in a larger way, not only
for those now in idleness, but also for
those that have attained a large place
among the necessities of industry.
