Abstract

Nickel ore in nature is divided into 2 types, namely nickel sulfide and nickel oxide which is often called laterite. According to global data, the world's nickel Ni reserves are around 139.419 billion tons and in Indonesia there are around 72 million tons of Ni including Limonite. This amount is the largest reserve in the world which covers 52% of the world's reserves. Laterite resources in Indonesia reached 3,565 million tons of ore (more than 3.5 billion tons) or equivalent to 52.2 million tons of Ni metal. Nickel is a raw material for electric batteries found in Indonesia, one of which is a potential location, namely the Southeast Sulawesi Province. One of the uses of Nickel is for battery raw materials. The raw materials for electric batteries are Nickel, Cobalt, Manganese and Lithium. The potential location of Nickel in Southeast Sulawesi, namely in Kolaka Regency, is estimated at 1.3 billion tons spread over the sub-districts of Wolo, Wundulako, Baula, Pomalaa, Tanggetada, and Watubangga. Konawe Regency is 529.9 million tons, with a resource value of 460.57 million tons, and reserves of 69.3 million tons, Ni levels range from 0.6–2%, located in Routa District, Puriala District, Pondidaha District
