Nickel production cost

Nickel production cost at Sunrise uses average C1 cash cost over first decade of operation, before by-product credits. 2. Based on Energetics LCA study. 3. Conversion cost is the Sunrise development capital (US$1.8B) amortised over 10 years at a rate of 3% pa. 4. By-product credits use $26.90/lb Co, $1,500/kg scandium oxide and $130/t ammonium

    Jun 12, 2010 In 2009, Mitchell said nickel production cost was around US$3.70 a pound after by-product credits. The downturn in copper, PGMs, and cobalt prices compared to 2008 resulted in significantly lower by-product credits. Combine this with Vale Inco’s four-month operation in 2009 and the current strike pay costs and one obtains a better

    Nickel Statistics and Information. Nickel (Ni) is a transition element that exhibits a mixture of ferrous and nonferrous metal properties. It is both siderophile (i.e., associates with iron) and chalcophile (i.e., associates with sulfur). The bulk of the nickel mined comes from two types of ore deposits:
