Uses of nickel
Nickel is mainly used to make stainless steel: it adds strength and corrosion resistance to the steel, and is also used in types of steel designed to be less magnetic. It is also used for nickel plating.
With its ability to handle high temperatures, nickel features in specialty steels and superalloys, used for example in jet engines.
Nickel compounds are used in batteries – increasingly so in the powerful batteries used in electric vehicles.
We have interests in a range of mining assets on four continents. They include:
Koniambo is a large-scale integrated ferronickel mining and processing complex.
Murrin Murrin is a nickel-cobalt operation in the north-eastern Goldfields of Western Australia, producing refined nickel and cobalt metal.
