Hpal nickel

Consider this: if you are mining a laterite nickel ore grading 1%, and you want to make 60,000 tonnes a year of nickel, you need to mine at least six million tonnes of material. With HPAL, you have to place all of that mined material into an autoclave (think of a submarine-sized pressure vessel), adding heat, adding sulphuric acid, and
