According to the bank, "the Project involves the construction and operation of an open-pit nickel and cobalt mine entailing the mining of nickel laterite ore at a rate of 120,000 dry metric tonnes per year. The ore will be processed using a heap leaching method which involves the irrigation of the ore with a dilute acid solution to obtain the nickel and cobalt. The resulting leach solution will be purified and de-watered to produce 1,400 metric tonnes per year of nickel and 35 metric tonnes per year of cobalt, both as hydroxide products. All Project process plant residues will be filtered to a solid state so that they can be stacked in a dedicated and protected residue disposal area, obviating the need for a wet tailings dam"

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
