This study focuses on the comprehensive utilization of a limonitic laterite from the Philippines. The ore was screened to remove some silicate minerals and then treated via reduction roasting-ammonia leaching. The optimal conditions of reduction roasting of screened ore (Ore I) were determined through a series of tests. Compared with the extractions of nickel and cobalt from the initial ore, those from Ore I increased from 84.0% to 87.9% and from 35.5% to 47.4%, respectively. The iron in leach residue increased from 56.2% to 60.7% without any further treatment, and the final recovery of iron was up to 85.2%. The improved reduction roasting process was analyzed to illustrate the phase transformations of iron, nickel, and cobalt, as well as the effects of such behaviors on the recoveries of these metals. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
