Conclusions:

  • Nickel mineralogy is driving the process
  • Don’t ignore the gangue minerals
  • POX leaching sulphides future direction
  • BIOX developing technology
  • Lateritic Heap Leaching- early days
  • Manage the risk at bench scale- planning of testwork important
  • Piloting mandatory
  • Study CAPEX and OPEX may not be achieved
