    Any mining techies have a handle on this one.I know sulphide nickels easier/cheaper? to extract,but are there thresholds in terms of grade etc that make a laterite mine more profitable than sulphides.Or is it all just a bit too complicated.Any reference material would be appreciated.

    Thanks and cheers domum.
