Nickel dispatch begins at Nova

The first cargo of concentrate from Independence Group’s Nova nickel mine has been dispatched to Kambalda, with the site’s processing plant to reach nameplate production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes per annum in the middle of next year.

About 50 per cent of the mine’s production for the first three years will be delivered to BHP Billiton Nickel West’s Kambalda facility, with the remainder shipped via Esperance in a three-year contract with Glencore.

Nicklel concentrate shipping is expected to start in June next year, with Hudson Shipping the contractor, while copper concentrate is expected to begin dispatch to offtake partner Dutch company Trafigura around the same time.
