laterite nickel exploration

Abstract Nickel belongs to the transition metal family and shows close chemical similarities with Fe and Co Even more than these elements it is concentrated in silicated Fe-Mg minerals by octahedral substitution with Fe 2+ ions Thus the mean mineral/ matrix partition coefficient of Ni is 14 0 5 0 and 2 6 for basaltic whole rocks for olivine and orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene Laterite ores were the major source of early nickel : 1 Rich laterite deposits in New Caledonia were mined starting the end of the 19th century to produce white metal : 1 The discovery of sulfide deposits of Sudbury Ontario Canada during the early part of the 20th century shifted the focus to sulfides for nickel extraction

Impacts of Laterite Mining of Nickel and Iron Ores on

p 2 Impacts of Laterite Mining of Nickel and Iron Ores on Watersheds PREMISE Open pit contour or strip mining of laterites involves removing 1 to 2 meters of topsoil to be able to extract the laterite limonite and saprolite deposits

Nickel Laterite Geology Nickel is present in two major types of deposits such as magmatic (volcanic) sulfide deposits and nickel laterites While nickel laterites hold about 70% of nickel reserves most ancient nickel production has originated from nickel sulfides This is now changing due to depletion of nickel sulfide reserves and a gradual

GPR FOR LATERITIC NICKEL Overview Nickel laterite deposits are formed by tropical weathering of ultramafic rocks Nickel is leached from the rock resulting in an overburden that has a high (up to 2-3%) nickel content Surprising exploration depths has been observed in what appears to be clay rich tropical areas

Laterite nickel deposit is a hotspot of global nickel resource exploration and development and it is also a key target of foreign mineral resource exploration for our country The Kolonodale deposit located in Sulawesi Island in Indonesia is a typical deposit in SE Asian laterite nickel deposit belt The deposit occurred in laterite weathering profile of ultramafic rocks The ore

The demand for high quality nickel sulphate will surge as the trend towards electric vehicles increases BHP is investing $50 million in nickel exploration activities in Western Australia BHP now sells more than 75% of its nickel production to the electric vehicle battery materials industry

Typical nickel laterite ore deposits are very large tonnage low-grade deposits located close to the surface They are typically in the range of 20 million tonnes and upwards (this being a contained resource of 200 000 tonnes of nickel at 1%) with some examples approaching a billion tonnes of material

Here we explore the usefulness of platinum-group element (PGE: Os Ir Ru Rh Pt Pd) chemistry in lake sediments as a corroborative proxy for the presence or absence of Ni-laterite deposits in the catchment area of tropical lakes This approach is being tested because recent studies have shown that PGE can be significantly enriched in Ni

Nickel Exploration in Oregon's Illinois Valley The presence of nickel ore in southwest Oregon has been known for more than a hundred years but it wasn't until the late 1940s that interest in these deposits escalated with notable spikes in exploration happening in the

Nickel Laterites in SE Asia

Nickel Laterites in SE Asia Presented by: Mick Elias Principal Consultant CSA Global BALI 2013 East Asia: Geology Exploration Technologies and Mines May 27 2013 • What are nickel laterites and how do they form? • Range of deposit types • Global distribution of lateritic nickel resources • Exploration and resource delineation • Processing options for nickel laterite ores

S K Haldar in Mineral Exploration 2013 4 5 2 3 Laterite Laterite is a consolidated product of humid tropical weathering predominantly composed of goethite hematite kaolin quartz bauxite and other clay minerals It is red brown to chocolate colored at the top showing hollow vesicular and botryoidal structure It changes progressively from a nodular iron oxide-rich zone at the top

• Concurrent with the infill drilling exploration work will also include step-out drilling in order to define ore extensions outside the pit design and to assess the potential of satellite laterite deposits mapped at the southern areas of the MPSA • Potential drill targets include Agata South-A Agata South-B and Agata

Nickel is leached from the rock resulting in an overburden that has a high (up to 2-3%) nickel content Problem The overburden vertical profile in the deposit areas normally has an upper soft sediment-like (limonitic) zone over a saprolitic zone (nickel rich serpentonite boulders encased in limonite) over unweathered host rock

nickel laterite exploration This drove Y ilgarn nickel exploration spending to levels comparable with the nickel boom laterite spending exceeded sulphide spending in 1997 and in 1999-2001 although much of this was resource delineation Three mines were developed in the late 1990s Bulong (by
