Dissolution behavior of Caldag lateritic nickel ore

The dissolution behavior of Caldag lateritic nickel ore subjected to a sequential organic acid leaching method was investigated. The effects of the type of organic acid, acid concentration, leaching time, and leaching temperature on the lateritic nickel ore were examined. Organic acids were used individually prior to sequential leaching. Citric acid was more effective than the other two acids

Leaching behaviour of a turkish lateritic ore in the

Abstract: This paper investigates the dissolution mechanism of a lateritic nickel ore from the Caldag Region of Manisa in Turkey. The ore sample contained 1.2% Ni, 24.8% Fe, and 0.062% Co. The optimum leaching conditions were found to be temperature 80 oC, particle size -74 µm, H 2 SO 4

US6312500B1 Heap leaching of nickel containing ore

A process is provided for heap leaching ore to recover nickel. The process is particularly effective for ores that have a tangible clay component (i.e., greater than about 10% by weight). The process includes sizing the ore (where necessary), forming pellets by contacting ore with a lixiviant and agglomerating. The pellets are formed into a heap and leached with sulfuric acid to extract the

Heap Leaching: Extending Applications E & MJ

Heap-leaching for nickel has also followed different development routes, with separate technologies being used in the treatment of sulphide and laterite ores. One of the early leaders in laterite processing, European Nickel, put its Çaldag project in Turkey on care-and-maintenance at the end of last year following permitting delays and is

Why heap leach nickel laterites? ScienceDirect

Mar 15, 2016· Nickel laterite heap leaching is a destructive process and as such the most suitable method of heap leaching is via a dynamic (on/off) pad. Spent ore is simply removed as per other operational heap leaches and disposed of in the residue disposal area, in a nickel laterite heap leach most often it is co-disposed with the iron filter cake. 5.1.8.

Heap leaching Wikipedia

Heap leaching is an industrial mining process used to extract precious metals, copper, uranium, and other compounds from ore using a series of chemical reactions that absorb specific minerals and re-separate them after their division from other earth materials. Similar to in situ mining, heap leach mining differs in that it places ore on a liner, then adds the chemicals via drip systems to the
