Hydrometallurgy

Hellenic Minerals applies the method of hydrometallurgy, a modern and environmentally friendly method, which has been applied with great success and has been improved after thorough laboratory research and industrial application over the last three decades for the exploitation of the low grade poor copper ores in the area of Skouriotissa.

Raw material

The company processes imported laterite, which is high in nickel and a recent mining product. Thorough chemical and other analyses indicate the high purity of the ore, as it does not contain any pollutants or heavy metals. This raw material is widely used worldwide by plenty of countries and is transported by sea and land in huge quantities.

Final product

The final product, nickel sulfate hexahydrate (NiSO4 · 6H2O), is a high value, basic raw material for the production of electric car batteries. The sole purpose of the project is to export the final product in order to be used in foreign industries.
