Abstract:

In this MSc thesis, the refractory minerals that may be present in limonitic nickel laterite ores will be tried to be leached under the optimum conditions of high pressure and atmospheric acid leaching. The results of the different methods of leaching to be obtained will be compared in terms of the Ni and Co extractions.
