Using nickel flash smelting technology it is possible to process sulfide nickel concentrate and produce nickel matte and slag in a relatively efficient process. Any materials resulting as smelting and converting slags are recirculated in the electric furnace and recovered where possible as nickel matte.
Nickel in crystalline sulfate was produced as a byproduct of smelting and refining platinum-group-metal ores mined in Montana. The principal nickel-consuming States were Pennsylvania and Kentucky. Approximately 48% of the primary nickel consumed went into stainless and alloy steel products, 40% into nonferrous alloys and superalloys, 8% into

OUTOTEC SMELTING SOLUTIONS FOR THE PGM INDUSTRY L. Aspola Outotec R. Matusewicz Outotec K. Haavanlammi Outotec S. Hughes Outotec Abstract The platinum group metals (PGMs), i.e. ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium, and platinum, are typically found in association with each other, but also importantly, with nickel and copper.
Controlled levels of nickel, iron, and coal in the calcine ensure efficient production of ferronickel with a constant composition during smelting. Ninety percent of smelted ferronickel is used in making stainless steel and other ferrous alloys. The balance is smelted to sulphide matte for refining to nickel metal and other nickel products.
The EHS Guidelines for Smelting & Refining cover information relevant to base metal smelting and refining of lead, zinc, copper, nickel, and aluminum. It does not include the mining and concentration of the raw materials, which is covered in the EHS Guidelines for Mining. Annex A contains a description of industry sector activities.
NBM Production By Smelting Lateritic Nickel Ore Grant Wu Secretary-General of APOL Oct. 9, 2012 . Main Topics 1 Background ... Note：In 2011, about 300,000ton of nickel metal produced by smelting Lateritic nickel ore, ~ 70% of Total production(465,000ton) in China. 13
Nickel Smelting and Refining Industry Description and Practices Primary nickel is produced from two very dif-ferent ores, lateritic and sulfidic. Lateritic ores are normally found in tropical climates where weath-ering, with time, extracts and deposits the ore in layers at varying depths below the surface. Lat-
mining, smelting, and refining of nickel can be found in Duke (1980b), Tien and Howson (1981), and Warner (1984). Domestic primary nickel production in the United States ceased in 1986 (Chamberlain 1985; Kirk 1988a)
Understanding ferronickel smelting from laterites through computational thermodynamics modelling D. R. Swinbourne* The smelting of nickel laterite ores to ferronickel alloy is unique in extractive metallurgy. It treats feed that is very low grade with respect to the target metal and, as a result, produces much more waste slag than valuable ...
CDD/CDFs in the wastewater of a magnesium refining facility and in the receiving water sediments downstream of a nickel refining facility in Norway. Insufficient information is available from this study for evaluating CDD/CDF emissions, if any, from the smelting/refining of magnesium and nickel in the United States. The potential for
436 Nickel Smelting and Refining cathodes is the most common technology used for nickel refining. Electrowinning, where nickel is removed form solution in cells equipped with inert anodes is the more common refining process used for nickel. Chloride electrolytes are used although sulfuric acid solutions are used more often.

Nickel-containing ore is usually smelted to produce a raw material for the steel industry ("ferronickel") or for subsequent refining into nickel metal or nickel containing chemicals. Nickel is refined into high purity nickel, notably in Finland, France, Norway and the United Kingdom. Chemicals Smelting Mining Refining new-Caledonia
platinum group metals (PGMs) – occurring together with nickel – can be collected in iron alloys that are produced by means of reductive smelting [2, 3, 4]. There are many similarities between this process and that used commercially in the primary smelting of nickel laterite ores for …
