Nickel Laterite Ore

AppNote XRF1869: elemental analysis of Ni laterite ore

Background

Analysis of laterite ore is demonstrated using empirical calibration for monitoring the major elements and using FP (Fundamental Parameters) for general screening and characterization including trace elements. Laterite ore is the source of 70% of the global supply of nickel. During mining a fast and simple means of determining and monitoring oxide and elemental composition of the ore material is important for grading and preparing feedstock for further processing. Rigaku offers EDXRF systems ideally suited for analyzing elemental and oxide composition throughout mining operations and processing operations.
