NICKEL AND COBALT FOR THE TECHNOLOGIES OF TOMORROW
Brazilian Nickel is an advanced nickel/cobalt project in Brazil, applying simple heap-leach technology to treat laterite ores and produce nickel and cobalt products perfectly suited for the battery market.
TechMet has funded the first commercial phase of project development and has signed an agreement to jointly develop nickel laterite opportunities globally by deploying Brazilian Nickel’s unique heap leaching technology.
- The current Piauí nickel project is a Tier 1 (low cost, large scale) Ni/Co project with an extensive resource definition that will produce battery-grade nickel and cobalt hydroxides.
- Demonstration plant (pictured) has proved technical viability – now embarking on commercial small-scale plant and feasibility study for full-scale mine.
- Management are world-class nickel heap leaching experts and significant shareholders.
- Potential to create a multi-asset, mid-tier nickel/cobalt champion by exploiting competitive advantage in treating laterite ores.
