Last night Nickel exploded to its highest level in 4 years, up 8% at some stages on the back of Indonesia confirming an export ban to begin in December this year rather than in 2022. Indonesia is the biggest producer of Nickel world-wide, so many are afraid of a quick global shortage.
I have spent some time looking at producers worldwide with the lowest All-In Sustaining Cost (AISC).
Independence Group (IGO.ASX) AISC USD $ 1.36 LB / $2997 Tonne.
