Ideally this technology is best suited for lower grade, highly disseminated nickelcobalt sulfide ores. Proposed Benefit to WA Economical alternative leach technologies for extraction of nickel and cobalt from waste streams has the potential to unlock upwards of 20 billion dollars' worth of nickel and cobalt to the battery industry.
NickelChromium Alloys. Nickelchromium alloys are prized for their high corrosion resistance, hightemperature strength, and high electrical resistance. For example, the alloy NiCr 70/30, also designated as Ni70Cr30, Nikrothal 70, Resistohm 70, and X30H70 has a melting point of 1380 o C and an electrical resistivity of μΩm.
