Nickel Resources in India and their Exploitation

Misra, R N and Bhatnagar, P P (1968) Nickel Resources in India and their Exploitation. In: Symposium on Non-ferrous Metals Technology : Papers for presentation, 4th - 7th Dec.1968, National Metallurgical Laboratory (CSIR), Jamshedpur.



Nickel is an important strategic alloying element and is being increasingly consumed in this modern era. The present world production of nickel has well exceeded 4000,000 tonnes and is likely to increase further with new plants coming up. With the depilation of high frade resources considerable attention is being paid for prod-uction of nickel from the low-grade ores and a world-wide search for such ores is continuing. India's nickel requi-rement is met by imports for which 18.5 million rupees worth of foreign exchange is annually required for its import, the production of nickel from indigenous lean ores is highly desirable and G.S.I. has been carrying out extensive survey of the nickel deposits in the country.
