TOUGH CALL: BHP Billiton’s Nickel West business, which operates mines, a smelter and refinery, face a grim future without a higher price.

Analysis: Nickel woes a simple equation

It’s likely more nickel operations will need to be closed before there’s any improvement in prices for the steel-making commodity.

Interesting article Tim Treadgold. Reminds me of your previous insightful analysis of Haematite vrs Magnetite iron ore projects - seems like a light year ago now, how things have changed! Here's hoping for better times for Mincor, Western Areas, Panoramic and Poseidon!

Interested to know why Tim Treadgold is no longer listed as a Business News journalist? Fortunately we are still getting articles but I was familiar with just clicking on his profile to see any recent articles that I may have missed.

Hi Konrad, thanks for the pick-up! Tim should definitely be listed as a BN journalist. Our journalist page was showing 12 out of our 13 reporters and unfortunately Tim was the only one missing. This has now been fixed.
