The Minerals, Metals, & Materials Society continues its long interest in the physical and extractive metallurgy of nickel and cobalt by sponsoring another symposium and co-publishing the proceedings. The plenary session was followed by sessions on nickel laterite hydrometallurgy, electrometallurgy, solid-state processing and smelting in pyrometallurgy, ores and processing, applications and recycling, and nickel and cobalt hydrometallurgy. The 35 papers consider such topics as the reductive leaching of limonitic laterites using ferrous sulphate, comparing intercell contact bars for electrowinning plants, the mineralogical characterization of cobaltic oxides from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the influence of thermo-mechanical treatment on structures and properties of a cobalt-based superalloy, and the starved acid leaching technology (SALT) for recovering nickel and cobalt from saprolites and Caron plant residues.
