Abstract

RODRIGUES, Ruy Lacourt  and  SILVA, Valdir Costa e. Definition and production plan for a PAL lateritic nickel deposit. Rem: Rev. Esc. Minas [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.3, pp. 303-308. ISSN 0370-4467.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0370-44672008000300007.

A hypothetical lateritic nickel deposit of median size was defined using data from a number of deposits under development and implementation. Production plans for a pressure acid leach operation were developed using industry parameters. Capacities between 45000 t/year Ni and 300000 t/year Ni were studied, leading to a set of technical parameters, used for capacity assessment.

Keywords : Production plan; capacity definition; lateritic nickel; (high) pressure acid leaching (PAL, HPAL, HiPAL).
