Production of Nickel in the current year could exceed demand at 60,000 tonnes

At a meeting in

The Lisbon meeting of the International Nickel Study

Group (international research

suggested a high probability

excess reserves of Nickel in 2011. They

opinion worldwide production (over

through the introduction of market operators new

production capacity) can

to meet this year 1.6 million tons, then

as the volumes consumed, according to

the preliminary analysis will be

the order of 1.54 million tons. However, the absolute

confidence in the specialists there,

because the situation in large

This was due to the rise in prices

Nickel production (1.44 million
