Key highlights:-

  • The ban imposed on nickel ores and concentrates exports by the Indonesian government is likely to benefit the Australian nickel mining industry. Australian nickel miners have been facing difficulties because of lower nickel prices in recent years.
  • Continued weakness in prices of base metals has started affecting the development of planned projects in Australia. The base metal industry is facing a downturn as commodity prices are declining and many projects are delayed due to rising input cost.
  • Australia had the second largest copper reserves in the world next to Chile with 86Mt or around 12.6% of global reserves at the end of 2012, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Australia’s Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC) compliant reserves were about 25.2Mt and EDR was 91.1Mt at the end of 2012.
  • Almost 90% of Australia’s economic resources of nickel are located in Western Australia followed by New South Wales (5%), Queensland (4%) and Tasmania with less than 1%. Australia is home to the world’s largest komatiite-hosted nickel sulphide and lateritic deposits.
