Koniambo nickel operation


Koniambo nickel operation

Report summary

Koniambo's nickel is contained in both saprolite and limonite with grades that compare favourably with other laterite deposits in the world. Pre-feasibility work on Koniambo commenced in 2000, and in 2001 the decision was taken to employ Falconbridge's proprietry technology, known as "FL Laterite Smelting technology". Construction commenced in 2007 and with operations starting in 2013. Various technical issues were experienced during ramp-up which limited production through to Q1 2014. Eramet's production guidance for the operation was 16kt nickel in FeNi in 2016. However, Wood Mackenzie expects that output will be closer to 12kt nickel in FeNi. In September, Glencore announced that it would make 140 positions redundant at the site and that it would make a decision on its future involvement in Koniambo before the end of 2016.
