  • BHP sinks cash into Nickel West to revive operations 2016-10-20
    The future of mining giant BHP Billiton’s Nickel West arm appears solid as the company focused on extending its current operating life from 2023 to 2032, and sinks cash into maintaining its asset integrity. BHP, which has unsuccessfully tried to sell its nickel businesses, has invested A$2-million a month for the last ten months into maintenance and repairs at Nickel West. The spending will continue for the remainder of 2016 and 2017, said Nickel West asset president Eduard Haegel on Thursday.

    The program of up to 7,000m of diamond drilling will initially test the Ulysses target area. A total of six drill holes are planned to test Ulysses from surface. Drilling will be staged based on ongoing success and will target potential extensions to the Odysseus North mineralisation and untested EM conductors identified in historic data. The program will utilise digital Atlantis DHEM to verify the conductors and detect any new anomalies. One of the reasons to drill Ulysses first is that any success can add to resources at Odysseus and enhance project economics. The plates identified have been sourced from the previous owner's geophysical information and have been reviewed by our geophysical consultants, Newexco. Odysseus is already a very significant Mineral Resource with 174,000t of contained nickel. The Ulysses drilling will be followed by a broader exploration drilling program focused on testing other near-mine opportunities and any targets generated by the ongoing EM surveys. A number of drilling targets have already been defined at the Aries, Prospero and Apollo areas, and these will be ranked and prioritised with any new targets. Targets proximal to existing infrastructure and within the brownfield areas of the Cosmos Nickel Belt have potential to add the most value due to the extremely high tenor of the mineralisation (up to 30% Ni), and will be ranked accordingly. Drilling tenders have been received and are being reviewed, with work expected to begin this quarter. Consultation has also begun with the traditional owners of Cosmos, and WSA is working with members of the local communities to prepare for the exploration activities.
