nickel leach process

Nickel processing Extraction and refining Britannica

Various processes are used to treat nickel matte. One process is the ammonia pressure leach, in which nickel is recovered from solution using hydrogen reduction, and the sulfur is recovered as ammonium sulfate for use as fertilizer.In another, the matte may be roasted to produce high-grade nickel oxides; these are subjected to a pressure leach, and the solution is electro- and carbonyl refined.

The Direct Nickel Process :: Total Materia Article

Using nitric acid as a leaching agent the direct nickel process can treat all types of nickel ore and produces a single flow sheet for a number of final saleable products. As an atmospheric hydrometallurgical process the direct nickel process has an impressive recycle and return statistic meaning 95%+ of the nitric acid is re-used, therefore

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

Acid leaching of nickel sulphide concentrates ScienceDirect

Apr 01, 1976· The obvious acid leaching process, viz. digestion with acid to produce H2S and a nickel salt, has not been used at all, simply because the reaction does 362 not go to completion. For example, Kambalda nickel concentrates yield only 10% of their nickel into solution even with prolonged leaching using an excess of mineral acid.

RECOVERY OF NICKEL IN LEACHING OF LATERITE ORES

A process for the leaching of a laterite ore or concentrate for the recovery of value metals, such values including iron, cobalt and nickel, comprising the steps of: a) subjecting laterite ore or concentrate to a leaching step with a lixiviant comprising hydrochloric acid and magnesium chloride to leach value metals from the laterite ore or

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
