Lateritic nickel ore deposits Wikipedia

OverviewGenesis and types of nickel lateritesOre depositsExtractionSee also

Lateritic nickel ores formed by intensive tropical weathering of olivine-rich ultramafic rocks such as dunite, peridotite and komatiite and their serpentinized derivatives, serpentinite which consist largely of the magnesium silicate serpentine and contains approx. 0.3% nickel. This initial nickel content is strongly enriched in the course of lateritization. Two kinds of lateritic nickel ore have to be distinguished: limonite types and silicate types.

Saprolite Wikipedia

OverviewDefinition, description and locationsFormationUsesSee also

Saprolite (from Greek σαπρος = putrid + λιθος = rock) is a chemically weathered rock (literally, it means "rotten rock"). More intense weathering results in a continuous transition from saprolite to laterite. Saprolites form in the lower zones of soil horizons and represent deep weathering of the bedrock surface. In lateritic regoliths– regoliths are the loose layer of rocks that rest on the bedrock sap

Processing of Nickel Laterite Ores on the Rise

The Move to Nickel LateritesLateritic Nickel Ore ProcessingConclusionSulfides have long supplied the bulk of the global appetite for nickel. But dwindling resources combined with the need to mine at greater (and subsequently less economic) depths to obtain sulfide ores has many miners looking at nickel laterites. Additionally, nickel is expected to see growth in demand as developing economies spur a greater need for stainless steel. Similarly, demand is expected to grow as 在feeco上查看更多信息

Saprolite an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Saprolite is weathered bedrock which still retains the original lithic fabric. The nature of the saprolite is influenced by the type of rock from which it develops, and it determines the chemical and physical properties of the associated soils.
