The paper studies the feasibility of nickel extraction from picrite basalts of the Gudchikhinskaya Series by atmospheric leaching. Use of picrite basalt ores deposited at the depths above 200 m is extremely topical because it is amplifying the possibilities to utilize mineral resources of the Norilsk Region.
