Nickel Ore - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Ore grade has a direct effect on mine investment costs expressed in US$ per annual tonne of nickel. Consider two identical ore bodies, one containing 1.25% Ni ore and the other containing 2.5% Ni ore. Achievement of an identical annual production of nickel in ferronickel requires that the 1.25% Ni ore be mined at twice the rate of the 2.5% Ni ore.
