MEI Online: MEI Conferences: Processing of Nickel Ores & Concentrates 05: Introduction

Home General Introduction Conference Report Conference Programme Published Papers Delegate List Photos  


This, the 1st International Symposium on Processing of Nickel Ores & Concentrates (Nickel Processing 05), was organised by Minerals Engineering International and sponsored by Eurus Mineral Consultants.

The recent rapid increases in nickel prices have been driven by market forces reacting to a supply situation that is expected to worsen in the years to come. Increasing the efficiency of the processing of nickel ores and concentrates is thus a necessity.

The aim of this conference was to bring together researchers and plant operators, to discuss all aspects of the physical and chemical processing or nickel ores, copper-nickel ores and laterites, and nickel concentrates, including:

  • Froth Flotation and other beneficiation methods
  • Bio and Hydrometallurgy
  • Pyrometallurgy
  • Environmental aspects of nickel processing and smelting
