Enhanced methods for nickel recovery from low-grade ores

Sep 06, 2017 · Mining nickel directly is the obvious route to obtaining pure nickel, however, nickel can also be recovered as a byproduct of other metals. For example, copper electrolysis requires a bleed to eliminate the buildup of impurities that accumulate over time as a result of the electrorefining of impure copper anode to produce pure metal cathode.
