We study terminal 3-fold divisorial extractions σ: (E Y ) → (C X) which extract a prime divisor E from a singular curve C centred at a point P in a smooth 3-fold X. Given a presentation of the equations defining C, we give a method for calculating the graded ring of Y explicitly by serial unprojection. We compute some important examples and classify such extractions when the general hyperplane section SX containing C has a Du Val singularity at (P ∈ SX) of type A1, A2, D2k, E6, E7 or E8.
