A programme of research on key nickel laterite deposits is shedding light on their geological and mineralogical diversity.
The mineralogy and geology of nickel laterite deposits is poorly defined due to:
In order to better understand these deposits and how they can be processed, we need:
We are undertaking focused studies on key deposits representing a range of mineralogical diversity and ages. These include deposits from Turkey, Albania, Kazakhstan, Colombia and the Philippines, ranging in age from late Jurassic to those still actively forming.
A collaborative project with SME Çaldağ Nikel in Turkey, addressing key industrial problems associated with nickel processing.
The mineralogy of nickel-bearing laterite deposits is poorly understood. Learn more about the classification and composition of these deposits.
