Introduction to the stirred milling of nickel laterites for ...

The stirred milling of nickel laterites offers possibilities for improving liberation and selective size reduction of soft nickel-bearing minerals in laterites. Batch grinding tests were performed in a netzsch lME4 stirred mill on siliceous goethitic, goethitic, and saprolitic nickel laterites.

Chemical composition of nickel laterite ore by fusion method ...

For the analysis of nickel laterites by XRF, high spectral resolution is required to detect trace amount of cobalt, since the wavelength are very close between iron and cobalt so that a large iron peak overlaps to the small cobalt peak in the spectrum. In addition, high sensitivity is required for the analysis of light elements such as magnesium.

Climate change and the formation of nickel laterite deposits ...

One of the major controls on nickel laterite deposit formation is climate. A comparison of climatic data for regions where ultramafic rocks are exposed shows that areas currently conducive to nickel laterite formation receive >1000 mm/yr precipitation, have cold month mean (CMM) temperatures between 15 and 27 °C, and warm month mean (WMM) temperatures between 22 and 31 °C.

Stirred milling of nickel laterites for selective comminution ...

Selective comminution of siliceous goethitic, saprolitic, and goethitic nickel laterites was investigated to upgrade nickel into the fine fraction using stirred milling. The breakage rates of minerals, grinding time, and the weight ratio of soft and hard minerals in the feed play an important role in selective grinding and nickel upgrade.

A lateritic nickel ore (3.36 mm fraction) and a fraction obtained from the cyclosizer overflow (8 µm fraction) were investigated with the aim to identify the nickel-bearing phases. Both samples were subjected to selective leaching with hydrogen peroxide, ammonium oxalate, and finally with the dithionite-citrate-bicarbonate system.

Nickel: A Green Energy Necessity With Environmental Risks ...

Nickel is a toxic element which, when released in effluent, often occurs in higher concentrations than normal background levels and therefore poses a severe threat to ecosystems. As Figure 4 below shows, 39% of global nickel reserves made up entirely of laterites are found in locations exposed to high or extreme biodiversity risks.

Nickel-Cobalt LateritesA Deposit Model - USGS

Nickel-cobalt (Ni-Co) laterite deposits are supergene enrichments of Ni±Co that form from intense chemical and mechanical weathering of ultramafic parent rocks. These regolith deposits typically form within 26 degrees of the equator, although there are a few exceptions. They form in active continental margins and stable cratonic settings.
