GENERAL ORE BODY MODEL
DETAILED ORE BODY MODEL
A silica rich duricrust caps this deposit.
This resource estimate is based on four separate bodies each consisting of a shallow, thin, irregular, tabular body with narrow linear zones |
of higher grade enrichment. This deposit is part of the Nornico project of Metallica Minerals Ltd.|
Beneficiation studies of the siliceous laterite ore types have shown that by wet screening the material to 5mm it is possible to reject 46% |
of the mass and retain 91% of the nickel and 81% of the cobalt in an undersize concentrate.|
