:: Direct Nickel Feasibility Study Underway
Direct Nickel Limited is positioned to become a leading global nickel producer following the companyís successful Nickel Production Demonstration Program completed during 2013 at the DNi Test Plant at the CSIROís Australian Minerals Research Centre in Waterford, Western Australia.
Underlining the companyís commitment to move to production, a Feasibility Study has commenced on a DNi Process Plant with Direct Nickelís partner and Indonesiaís largest nickel miner, PT ANTAM. The plant is being considered for ANTAMís Buli operation in Halmahera, Indonesia, next to Antamís ferronickel smelter. Targeting production of 10-20,000 tonnes per annum of nickel in concentrate, it will be the first commercial plant to utilise the revolutionary processing technology developed by Direct Nickel.
Direct Nickel has exclusive and perpetual worldwide rights to the DNi Process. With the close involvement at a technical and financial level of its industry, strategic and R&D partners, Direct Nickel has invested over seven years and more than $40 million in the development of the DNi Process and in its resource acquisition strategy.
