Can you mix molten metal and molten salt?

I was wondering if it is possible to mix molten metal and molten salt. I understand the difference in boiling points might play a role, but if one were to get it right what would the properties of the product be?

Tried to find it on the internet but couldn't.

No, you can't, because there are no attraction between molten metal atoms and molten salt ions/molecules, the kind of bonding in a metal and in a salt is completely different.

Cool, thanks. They make carbon steel, so i was wondering what happens if you try it with other stuff.
