Why oxides are easier to reduce compared to other ores?

							For a lot of metals (lead, mercury are good examples), the metal forms a weaker ionic interaction with a "hard" ion like oxide compared to a "softer" ion like sulfide. This weakens the ionic bonding in the solid and makes the metal ion more reactive.

Oxygen is more electronegative than sulphur   and will quickly accept electrons and get reduced easily . Bonds formed in oxides are weaker than bonds in sulphides hence oxide bonds are easy to break
