Madagascar: Ambatovy mining project African

It involves the development of an open pit mine, an ore slurry preparation plant and a 220 km-long pipeline to move it to the coast, a pressure acid leach processing plant, a metals refinery, and all other necessary infrastructure including water, power and steam generation, acid production, tailings disposal and port facilities.

Major Mines & Projects Ambatovy Mine

2020-6-1  Ore mined at the Ambatovy mine site is either directly fed to the ore preparation plant, or stockpiled for future processing. Ore processed through the OPP is slurried with water in a rotary drum scrubber and the resultant slurry is screened at 0.8 millimetres to reject partially or un-weathered material with a high magnesium content. The screened oversize material is processed through a second scrubber and screening circuit that achieves high recovery of the limonite contained in the ore.

2015-5-6  Ambatovy is a large-tonnage, long-life nickel and cobalt mining enterprise located in Madagascar. Ambatovy is the largest-ever foreign investment in the country and one of the biggest in sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean region. It will soon

Ambatovy Plant Site

2019-3-3  At the Plant Site, the ore undergoes numerous steps collectively known as the hydrometallurgical process which ultimately yields refined nickel and cobalt. As indicated by its name, the hydrometallurgical process makes use of water and other chemical compounds to progressively separate nickel and cobalt from the other materials present in the ore.

A treatment plan that is safe for the environment and for operations must be put in place for handling mine water. Water from mining and ore processing often contains considerable amounts of dissolved and undissolved pollutants, some of which are toxic.

Ambatovy Delivering Sustainable Value to

Due to the soft nature of the ore, no blasting is necessary. Ore is surface-mined by hydraulic excavators and delivered to the Ore Preparation Plant (OPP) in haulage trucks. There, the ore is processed with water to remove the rocks and become a slurry that is delivered by a 220 km pipeline to the processing plant and refinery.
