From Obi Island for Indonesia

Our commitments to participate in developing the eastern part of Indonesia and supporting the implementation of laws and regulations particularly downstream processing in minerals is realized through sustainable low grade nickel or limonite processing and refining project by adopting environmentally friendly technology called hydrometallurgical High Pressure Acid Leaching. The low-grade nickel processing and refining plant we are constructing is the pioneer industry or the first one in Indonesia by utilizing the low-grade nickel that have not been utilized with no economic value since they are only used for back-filling materials of the ex-mine pit area. By adopting environmentally-friendly technology, the low-grade nickel will have an added value to become a strategic business.

PT Halmahera Persada Lygend is currently developing a processing and refining plant by utilizing the hydrometallurgical High Pressure Acid Leaching technology through high-pressure solvent leaching method in a high pressure chamber. This technology utilizes low nickel content laterite ore limonite type with relatively (Ni < 1.6%) and produces an intermediate product in the form of Mixed Nickel-Cobalt Hydroxide Precipitate (MHP) and produces end products of nickel sulfate and cobalt sulfat. The limonite ore materials derive from ore products of Mining Permit Companies (IUP) PT Trimegah Bangun Persada (TBP) and PT Gane Permai Sentosa (GPS) which are part of Harita Nickel mine operations.
