Mining Methods For Nickel Ore

Nickel element extraction, mining technique flash

MINING AND PROCESSING : The mining methods differ with respect to the type of ore being mined. Since nickel is composed in two types of ores, both of them are mined differently. The sulfide ores are mined using underground mining methods though open-pit mining can also be done in early stages.

Enhanced methods for nickel recovery from low-grade ores

Whether high-grade or low-grade, nickel ores need to be processed after mining, in order to upgrade their nickel content from 1-4% Ni to 10-20%. Concentrating the nickel ores usually takes place close to the mine site, and involves chemical and physical processes to crush the ore and separate the nickel-bearing and gangue minerals.
