  • The oxidative leaching of nickel matte with manganese

    In acidic chloride solution, nickel matte was oxidized and leached with manganese nodules and manganese-containing oxide ores. The mineralogy in the leaching residues was investigated by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy. It was found that the process of dissolving the nickel matte was complicated. While the nickel matte was dissolving, the surface of the particles cracked

  • Heap leaching Wikipedia

    The mined ore is usually crushed into small chunks and heaped on an impermeable stone or clay lined leach pad where it can be irrigated with a leach solution to dissolve the valuable metals. While sprinklers are occasionally used for irrigation, more often operations use drip irrigation to minimize evaporation, provide more uniform distribution of the leach solution, and avoid damaging the exposed mineral. The solution then percolates through the heap and leaches both the target and other minerals. This process

    The results showed that leaching of about 99% of nickel content of the washed tailing could be achieved using 4.0 mol sulfuric acid, pulp density of 1/20 gmL⁻¹ and particle size of −180 +250

  • WO2018079101A1 Hydrometallurgical method for nickel

    This hydrometallurgical method for a nickel oxide ore is characterized by comprising a leaching step for preparing a slurry of a nickel oxide ore having a carbon quality of 0.20 mass% or more, adding sulfuric acid to the ore slurry in a reaction container, and subjecting the resultant slurry to a leaching treatment at high temperature and high

  • WO2005005671A1 Process for recovery of nickel and

    A process for the recovery of nickel and cobalt from laterite ores, the process including the steps of: a) beneficiating the ore to separate it into a beneficiated upgraded ore fraction and a coarse, siliceous low grade rejects fraction which is substantially free from fines and clay materials; b) separately processing the upgraded ore fraction for the recovery of nickel and cobalt; and c

  • Nickel Heap Leaching Brazilian Nickel PLC

    Heap Leaching is an ancient process; leaching metals out of ore goes back nearly 500 years. Mines in Hungary recycled copper-bearing solutions through waste heaps in the 1550s, Spanish miners percolated acid solutions through large heaps of oxide copper ore on the banks of the Rio Tinto in 1752 and one of the classical methods for the manufacture of copperas (iron sulphate) was to heap up iron

  • Srećko Stopi Sulphuric Acid Leaching of the Serbian Nickel

    Srećko Stopić et al.: Sulphuric Acid Leaching of the Serbian Nickel Lateritic Ore Laterites are oxide ores widely distributed in the equatori- al regions. Lateritic deposits usually consist of three layers, namely the limonitic, the saprolitic and garnieritic layer. It is known that 54 % of the total reserves of nickel are found in laterites [1]. Conservative forecasts for the next 20 years

  • Nickel: smelting, producing-Metalpedia

    Nickel: smelting; Extraction and purification; Nickel is recovered through extractive metallurgy: it is extracted from its ores by conventional roasting and reduction processes that yield a metal of greater than 75% purity. In many stainless steel applications, 75% pure nickel can be used without further purification, depending on the composition of the impurities.

  • Enhanced methods for nickel recovery from low-grade

    Limonitic (oxide) lateric ores are usually treated by hydrometallurgical methods: the Caron Process and Pressure Acid Leaching (PAL), Figure 3. Ores with high levels of magnesium are treated by the Caron process: using selective reduction of the ore, and ammonia leaching. This method is more energy intensive, and produces lower metal recovery.

  • Processing of Nickel Laterite Ores on the Rise

    SX-EW, or the Solvent Extraction Electrowinning approach to lateritic ore beneficiation, is a hydrometallurgical method that relies on leaching, extractants, and electrowinning to produce nickel from ore. This process is often referred to as Leach Solvent Extraction Electrowinning for its employment of a leaching step. This process has been gaining attention for low-grade ores after

  • Bioleaching of Nickel-Cobalt Oxide Ores AusIMM

    An exploratory laboratory work was carried out on microbial leaching of poor non-sulphide nickel ores, not amenable to conventional mineral processing operations. The results have shown that domestic low-grade lateritic ores of limonitic or haematitic type are amenable to bioleaching by fungal strains of Aspergillus sp and Penicillium sp. Maximum nickel and cobalt recoveries achieved...

Copper ores present in the southern Democratic Republic of Congo, are usually associated with cobalt and nickel ore. Sulfur ores as well as oxidized ores of copper and cobalt are present in the region.

  • Mechanism of sodium chloride in promoting reduction

    Sodium chloride has been proved that it is an effective promoter for the reduction of high-magnesium, low-nickel oxide ore. The aim of current work is to clarify the promotion behavior of sodium

  • Atmospheric pressure leaching of nickel from a low-grade

    Keywords: nickel recovery, laterite ore, leaching, calcination, kinetics 1. Introduction Nickel is an important metal used for a wide variety of applications. The world’s various deposits of nickel are in the forms of sulfide and oxide (laterites) ores. Currently, the majority of nickel is obtained by exploiting the sulfide ores (Pawlowska and Sadowski, 2017). However, a continuous depletion

  • Oxide Nickel Ore Extraction

    Western Mining has about the highest mining cost based on ore of any of the sulfide operations, but their high ore grade gives them a relatively low mining-concentration cost based on nickel production. On the other hand, their by-products credits are small (mostly for cobalt) compared to INCO’s and Falconbridge’s operations in the Sudbury district of Canada which produce significant
