Why heap leach nickel laterites?

2.2.1.3. Koniambo. Glencore Xtrastra's Koniambo project (see Fig. 2.3) in New Caledonia commenced production in 2007 and it was 6 years later before the first metal tap was carried out. The first commercial grade FeNi was tapped just after this in April 2013 some 4 years later than planned.

† Leading supplier for DC furnaces in the metals industry. Examples of a DC unit are illustrated in Figures 3 and 4. The DC furnace is usually operated with an open arc, which smelts the material within a very short time. The material can be charged via a hollow-electrode system (HES) directly into the arc. Investigations show that the arc is
