The challenge of delivering up to 5,000 meals every day for miners at a world-class nickel project has been simplified with a switch to a sustainable new meal delivery tray, according to British company Bullseye Distributors. The changeover occurred at the $5 billion Ambatovy mine in Madagascar, which is ramping up to become the largest finished nickel and cobalt operation from lateritic ore in the world. The Ambatovy project is a vertically integrated nickel and cobalt mining, processing, refining and marketing joint venture between subsidiaries of Sherritt (40% ownership), Sumitomo (27.5%), Korea Resources (27.5%), and SNC-Lavalin (5%). Sherritt is the operator of the facilities.
