Growth in demand for batteries is pushing up nickel production and economic change in Indonesia.
- Nickel is an essential component in batteries, including those for cars and phones.
- Demand for metals is growing, most importantly in China, a major battery manufacturer.
- Indonesia is the world’s largest nickel producer.
- The country is working to expand its manufacturing sector, attracting investment from multinational industry and mining giants.
Pacific Rim Cobalt Corporation (OTCQB: PCRCF) (CSE: BOLT) (PCRCF Profile) is making the most of Indonesian nickel through an aggressive exploration and development program there. VALE S.A. (NYSE: VALE), the world’s leading nickel producer, is also invested in Indonesia. Lundin Mining Corporation (TSX: LUN) (OTC: LUNMF), another leading nickel producer, relies on sources in America and Europe. Cobalt 27 Capital Corporation (TSX.V: KBLT) (OTCQX: CBLLF) has recently acquired access to a significant Pacific nickel resource in Papua New Guinea.
