  • Indonesian Nickel Ore Ban: Who Will Fill The Supply

    Can other countries fill the nickel ore gap? The Philippines is typically viewed as the main potential source of additional ore. When the first ore export ban was put in place in 2014, the Philippines significantly raised its exports to China. This was mainly achieved through increased production from mines in the Autonomous Region in Muslim ...
