    Simultaneous leaching of seafloor massive sulfides (SMS) from Loki's Castle on the Arctic Mid-Ocean Ridge (AMOR) and polymetallic nodules (PN) from Clarion Clipperton Zone (CCZ) of the Central Pacific Ocean was studied. Leaching tests were conducted using sulfuric acid and sodium chloride, at a temperature of 80 °C for 48 h under reflux.

  • Manganese Nodules | SpringerLink

    May 20, 2016 · Manganese and iron oxide mineral deposits formed on or just below the sediment-covered surface of the deep-ocean seabed by accretion (precipitation) of oxide layers around a nucleus, thereby forming nodules of various shapes and sizes and which contain minor but significant amounts of nickel, copper, cobalt, lithium, molybdenum, zirconium, and rare earth elements.

  • Manganese nodule - Wikipedia

    Polymetallic nodules, also called manganese nodules, are rock concretions on the sea bottom formed of concentric layers of iron and manganese hydroxides around a core. As nodules can be found in vast quantities, and contain valuable metals, deposits have been identified as having economic interest.

    The chemical composition of the nodules varies according to the kind of manganese minerals and the size and characteristics of the core. The PMNs of greatest economic interest contain manganese (27–30%), nickel (1.25–1.5%), copper (1–1.4%), and cobalt (0.2–0.25%) (Manganese Nodules, Wikipedia). The largest PMN deposit is in the Clarion ...

  • Manganese Nodule - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    Manganese nodules, together with micronodules and encrustations, are ferromanganese oxide deposits which contain variable amounts of other elements (Table 1).They occur throughout the oceans, although the economically interesting varieties have a much more restricted distribution. Manganese nodules are spherical to oblate in shape and range in size from less than 1 cm in diameter up to 10 cm ...
