How is Nickel Mined - Want to Know it

Nov 04, 2012  Underground mining is when tunnels are dug under the ground and the ore is mined from the tunnel walls. This is sometimes done with special tools, but more commonly with explosives. As nickel is commonly found with other metals, especially iron, it is mined as an ore that needs to be separated and refined to produce nickel.

Underground mining (hard rock) - Wikipedia

Underground hard rock mining refers to various underground mining techniques used to excavate hard minerals, usually those containing metals such as ore containing gold, silver, iron, copper, zinc, nickel, tin and lead, but also involves using the same techniques for excavating ores of gems such as diamonds or rubies. Soft rock mining refers to excavation of softer minerals such as salt, coal, or oil sands.

Nickel Ore - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

This and the high cost of working underground explain why underground orebodies must contain higher grades of nickel ore than open-pit orebodies. Ore grade has a direct effect on mine investment costs expressed in US$ per annual tonne of nickel. Consider two identical ore bodies, one containing 1.25% Ni ore and the other containing 2.5% Ni ore.

How Underground Mining Works HowStuffWorks

Underground mines are the alternative to surface mines. Surface mines excavate from the top down, a method that can become inefficient at depths greater than about 200 feet (60 meters) [sources: Illinois Coal Association, De Beers].Undergrounds coal mines can drive 2,500 feet (750 meters) into the Earth and other types even deeper -- uranium mines can reach 6,500 feet, or 2 kilometers.
