Queensland Nickel's Yabulu expansion project had ordered a Larox PF filter for nickel carbonate
(1959) Hellyerite, a new nickel carbonate
from Heazle-wood, Tasmania.
The base case production plan used in the study is a 600-t/d mine producing 2M-lb/yr Co, 3.1M-lb/yr Ni (as nickel carbonate
) and 4.3M-lb/yr Cu (as concentrate).
* Sherritt - dissolution of the nickel carbonate
in ammonium sulphate solution and production of nickel powder by hydrogen reduction at high pressure and temperature.
