Keywords: mixed sulfide, sulfuric acid, iron(III) sulfate, nickel selective leaching, NiS 2 1. Introduction Nickel matte and mixed sulfide (MS, i.e., a mixture of nickel and cobalt sulfide) are made by rough refining from nickel sulfide ore or nickel oxide ore. These intermediate products are used as raw materials for commercial nickel ...


Processing oxidized nickel ores (ONO) by shaft smelting is unprofitable. Introduction of hydrometallurgical methods will resolve this problem. In this work, according to X-ray phase (X-ray diffraction) and X-ray spectral microanalysis (XMA), the main sources of nickel and cobalt in the ONO are minerals of the serpentine group, primarily lizardite and antigorite. Heap leaching …

The subject of this study is leaching process of nickel-bearing laterite ore from Ržanovo, R. Macedonia. The influence of sulfuric acid concentration (0.5, 1 and 3 M H2SO4) on the extracted Ni (%, wt.) was studied. The leaching process intensified by magnetic stirring at different temperatures (298, 323, 348 and 363 K) in the time interval of 120 min. was performed.


The extraction of nickel process generally consists of crushing, sieving, washing, re-selection, grinding, and slurry concentration, or the nickel leaching method. The target element nickel distribution varies with the nature of the ore, mostly contained in fine-grained grades. For example, the nickel minerals of the Ramu laterite mine in Papua ...


In this paper, the selective acid leaching of nickel from the pre-reduced limonitic laterite under moderate HPAL conditions was studied. For the calcine with reduction degree of 93.4%, about 88.2% nickel could be selectively extracted at 100°C with an acid/ore ratio of 0.164, leaving less then 5.0g/L iron in the solution. Further


The effects of cations stress of magnesium ion and sodium ion on the low-grade nickel sulfide ore oxidative leaching in simulated sulfuric acid solutions were investigated. This study was performed in two courses, including the effect of the cations on the valuable metals leaching efficiencies of the nickel ore and its influences on the electrochemical oxidation …


leaching of nickel from the ore at a constant total iron. The entire experiment was carried out at room temperature. The objective of the study was thus to calculate the amount of nickel leached or extracted from a low grade ore by bio leaching methods at different pulp densities of the ore as well as at different residence times.


The leaching kinetics study shows that nickel extraction from limonite ore by a mixture of 2 M sulfuric acid and 0.5 M citric acids is controlled by diffusion through solid product layer, while the nickel extraction from saprolite ore by a mixture of 0.5 M sulfuric acid and 2 M citric acid is controlled by interface reaction with activation ...


Abstract: Biological column leaching of Ni from low-grade Ni ore was studied, and the effects of ore particle size on leaching rate were investigated. The Ni ore with an average Ni content of 0.23% was crushed into four different particle size fractions: >10 mm, 5− ...


Leaching of a 2% (wt/vol) nickel ore with a co-culture of A. thiooxidans and A. ferrooxidans resulted in nickel yield of up to 86% with acid supplementation of 290 g H 2 SO 4 kg −1 ore. When coupled with biological sulfur oxidation, an 86% nickel recovery was achieved with 0.5% (wt/vol) ore concentration without further sulfuric acid addition.


ore was leached, with 7% of the nickel associated with this mineral. There were different extents of nickel leaching in step four, which removed the adsorbed nickel on the oxides and silicates. In the final leach step, which breaks the oxide/silicate crystalline lattice, the lizardite, nontronite and


The application of the sulfation-roasting-leaching process for nickel and cobalt extraction from a laterite ore is promising. The obtained results showed that 80.6, 93.3, 74.4, and 5.5 (wt.%) of nickel, cobalt, magnesium, and iron, respectively, can be extracted from the sample under favorable conditions.

The SX-EW Method. 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.


The effect of roasting the ore prior to leaching was investigated using optimum conditions obtained when leaching the unroasted ore. There was a slight improvement in nickel extraction when the ore was roasted. The average percentage extraction of nickel from 3 experimental runs was 19.25%±0.19 at 100oC, 3M NH 3, 2M (NH 4) 2 CO 3
