Do we lose metal forever when it rusts?


If a piece of metal rusts before we can protect it or recycle it, do we lose it forever?

Would a piece of metal just rust away to nothing if just left outside?

What is the chemical change from [insert metal] to rust?

We can reclaim the Iron and re-forge it into steel with enough rust and additives.
