Operational Overview Ore. Lateritic nickel ore for the Refinery is imported from mine sites in New Caledonia, Indonesia and the Philippines. Lateritic ore is formed by rainwater flowing through rock near the surface and weathering it over a considerable period of time. The highest grade lateritic ore forms in tropical and sub-tropical climates where nickel rich rocks called peridotites are
Nickel is recovered through extractive metallurgy: it is extracted from its ores by conventional roasting and reduction processes that yield a metal of greater than 75% purity. In many stainless steel applications, 75% pure nickel can be used without further purification, depending on
Nickel processing Nickel processing Extraction and refining: The extraction of nickel from ore follows much the same route as copper, and indeed, in a number of cases, similar processes and equipment are used. The major differences in equipment are the use of higher-temperature refractories and the increased cooling required to accommodate the higher operating temperatures in nickel
Our smelting plant is located in Larymna, about 130 km N/NE of Athens. The plant processes the nickelferrous ores (laterites) we mine to produce ferronickel with an 18%-24% nickel content. This is the raw material for the industrial production of stainless steel in Europe. The total quantity of ore processed per year is 2,500,000 tonnes

In nature, iron, copper, lead, nickel and other metals are found in impure states called ores, often oxidized and mixed in with silicates of other metals. During smelting, when the ore is exposed to high temperatures, these impurities are separated from the molten metal and can be removed. Slag is the collection of compounds that are removed.
OVERVIEW OF THE AUSTRALIAN NICKEL-COBALT INDUSTRY furnaces and electric furnaces using low-grade laterite ore imported mainly from Indonesia and the Philippines. This is a non-premium, low-grade product which finds its way mainly into the production of lower-ranked 200-series stainless steels. Its high unit cost economics

The key deal was completed on June 28, 2007, when Norilsk Nickel acquired about 90 per cent of Canada's LionOre Mining International Ltd, the world's 10th-largest nickel producer at the time. This takeover, valued at US$6.4 billion, is the biggest acquisition abroad by a Russian company, making Norilsk Nickel the world's largest nickel producer.

Electro-refining. Usually the object of electrolytic refining is to separate one metal in pure form from an alloy containing a high percentage of the desired metal, copper for instance, and a number of other metals dissolved in the copper or intimately mixed with it. The impurities can be classified in two groups: (a) those metals which can be
Smelting is a process of applying heat to ore in order to extract a base metal.It is a form of extractive metallurgy.It is used to extract many metals from their ores, including silver, iron, copper, and other base metals.Smelting uses heat and a chemical reducing agent to decompose the ore, driving off other elements as gases or slag and leaving the metal base behind.
