The mining methods differ with respect to the type of ore being mined. Since nickel is composed in two types of ores, both of them are mined differently. The sulfide ores are mined using underground mining methods though open-pit mining can also be done in early stages. The laterite ores are mined through applying earth-moving operation techniques. Usage of large shovels, draglines to extract the nickel …

Nickel mine - Wikipedia

From 1953 to 1958 Nickel Rim mines operating around Sudbury, Ontario deposited their mine tailings in an impoundment near the mine. The water in the impoundment was later tested and found to have low pH and high concentrations of iron, sulphur and dissolved metals such as aluminum and nickel. This is due to the oxidation of the tailings (usually sulfide minerals like pyrrhotite).
