Industry Lists

Nickel West is a fully integrated mine-to-market nickel business. All nickel operations (mines, concentrators, a smelter and refinery) are located in Western Australia. Multiple streams of nickel concentrate come together at the Nickel West Kalgoorlie smelter, which produces nickel matte. Nickel West Kwinana then refines granulated nickel matte from the Kalgoorlie smelter into premium-grade nickel powder and briquettes. Nickel matte and metal are exported to overseas markets via the Port of Fremantle.

In FY2018, Nickel West began its transition to become a global supplier to the battery materials market, approving funding and beginning preparatory works for the first phase of a nickel sulphate plant which will be located at the Kwinana Nickel Refinery.

In June 2020, BHP Nickel West acquired the Honeymoon Well development project from Russian-owned but WA-based Norilsk Nickel.
