Following a recently completed review of the company’s mining operations, Australian nickel miner Mincor Resources has implemented a revised mining plan at its nickel mines in Kambalda, Western Australia. Mincor will suspend capital development at Miitel (having already stopped it at Mariners) and proceed with stoping-only operations at both mines.

On this basis, Mincor expects to produce approximately 120,000 metric tons (mt) of ore at 2.8% nickel between June and November of this year, and to achieve its previously stated production target for FY2015 of approximately 8,500 mt of nickel-in-ore.

The company said it will review operations at Miitel and Mariners through the second half of the year in light of the prevailing nickel price with a view to either recommence capital development and ramp up production from those mines, or reduce production after November and focus primarily on the development of its new growth projects.
