nickel quality analysis
Nickel Quality Analysis
  • Nickel meets LME spec for all elements except silicon.
    • Silicon contamination has occurred from late October and into November as Si level in Refinery solution has increased.
    • Refinery is currently progressing initiatives to purge silicon from the circuit.
