The Metallica Name
Metallica was named after the definitive classic 16th century mining and metallurgy textbook, De Re Metallica (‘On the Nature of Metals’ or ‘All about Metals’). First published in 1556, it was the best known work of the German scientist and “father of mineralogy”, Georgius Agricola, and remained the authoritative text on mining for 250 years after its publication. De Re Metallica was translated into English in 1912 by one Herbert C. Hoover, a mining engineer who worked in Western Australia and went on to become the 31st President of the United States.
