Lateritic nickel ore deposits - Wikipedia

Nickel laterites are a very important type of nickel ore deposit. They are growing to become the most important source of nickel metal for world demand (currently second to sulfide nickel ore deposits ). Nickel laterites are generally mined via open cut mining methods. Nickel is extracted from the ore by a variety of process routes.

What Is Nickel Smelting? (with picture) - Info Bloom

Alex Newth Nickel ore must melt until it becomes a product known as liquid matte, which is usually around 45 percent nickel. Nickel smelting is the process that nickel ore goes through to eventually remove impurities and leave just the nickel metal. While the ores can come from different stones and sources, they have two categories: lateritic, or rocks found in tropical climates and which ...

Solar et al. (2008) noted two trends in nickel laterites processing, one favoring high-grade ferronickel (35% to 40% Ni) and the other favoring lower grades (20% to 25% Ni). Because the ores processed vary widely in terms of nickel content and other components, it is natural that both lower and higher reduction degrees are used.
