) for the production of nickel. Olivine is solid-solution of iron- and magnesium-silicates containing relatively small amounts of nickel and chromium, and is the precursor of weathered lateritic ores. Olivine (also known as dunite, an ore containing at least 90% olivine [6]) is abundantly present in

Chemoorganotrophic Bioleaching of Olivine for Nickel

Bioleaching of olivine, a natural nickel-containing magnesium-iron-silicate, was conducted by applying chemoorganotrophic bacteria and fungi. The tested fungus, Aspergillus niger, leached substantially more nickel from olivine than the tested bacterium, Paenibacillus mucilaginosus. Aspergillus niger also outperformed two other fungal species: Humicola grisae and Penicillium chrysogenum.

CO2 mineralization and concurrent utilization for nickel

A high-grade olivine mineral sample and a high-grade iron sulfide sample were provided by Sibelco Europe and Alfa Aesar, respectively. The chemical and mineral compositions are shown in Table 2 and Fig. 1.The high-grade olivine sample contains 0.27% nickel in form of nickel silicate by substituting magnesium and iron in the crystal structure of olivine.

Phytomining of nickel and saving CO2 emission

A number of plant species have the property that they can very efficiently extract nickel from olivine-rich rocks, and store it in their tissues. Whereas the background Ni-concentration of the olivine is around 0.2 to 0.3 % nickel, the ash of such plants contains often around 10% nickel, much higher than most nickel

the production of nickel and cobalt by high pressure acid leaching (PAL) of nickel laterites. More than one third of the world’s nickel is nowadays produced from laterite ores [1,2]. Laterites account for two thirds of the world’s nickel resources. It is therefore likely that increasing amounts of nickel will be produced from laterites.

Olivine Wikipedia

Olivine is named for its typically olive-green color, thought to be a result of traces of nickel, though it may alter to a reddish color from the oxidation of iron.. Translucent olivine is sometimes used as a gemstone called peridot (péridot, the French word for olivine). It is also called chrysolite (or chrysolithe, from the Greek words for gold and stone).

Advances in research on nickel production through the

in nickel production process through the Caron Process. The research focuses on two major areas: (i) reduction roasting of nickel laterite, and (ii) reduction of basic nickel carbonate (BNC) and NiO to nickel. Nickel in laterite is associated with Fe-rich goethite and serpentine/olivine particles. Re-

Nickel processing Extraction and refining Britannica

Nickel processing Nickel processing Extraction and refining: The extraction of nickel from ore follows much the same route as copper, and indeed, in a number of cases, similar processes and equipment are used. The major differences in equipment are the use of higher-temperature refractories and the increased cooling required to accommodate the higher operating temperatures in nickel

Millerite Wikipedia

During metamorphism, sulfur and nickel within the olivine lattice are reconstituted into metamorphic sulfide minerals, chiefly millerite, during serpentinization and talc carbonate alteration. When metamorphic olivine is produced, the propensity for this mineral to resorb sulfur, and for the sulfur to be removed via the concomitant loss of volatiles from the serpentinite, tends to lower sulfur

Nickel Laterites: The World’s Largest Source of Nickel

Dec 12, 2019· Although nickel Laterites make up 70% of the world’s nickel reserves, few of them become producing mines. Over the last 60 years magmatic sulfide nickel deposits produced 60% of the world’s nickel. In the last 10 years, the production of nickel from magmatic sulfide deposits has slowly decreased and begun to plateau.

Commodity profile: Nickel

Nickel-bearing lateritic ores, with average nickel content of 1–1.6%, are formed by tropical and sub-tropical surface weathering. Table 3 summarises these and other types of nickel deposit. Laterites currently account for around 70 per cent of nickel contained in land-based deposits but contribute only 40 per cent of world production.
