Nickel West is part of the BHP Billiton group. Epica Solutions was successful in being able to provide a resource to assist their in house team with its cataloguing requirements. Chandler McCleod managed the placement on Nickel West’s behalf. Nickel West is the world’s third largest producer of nickel in concentrate. All its operations are in Western Australia. It is a fully integrated nickel business comprising mines, concentrators, a smelter and a refinery. Nickel West exports approximately one third of its nickel matte production. The remaining matte is processed at Nickel West Kwinana to produce nickel metal in the form of briquettes and powder, as well as a number of intermediate products.
