The NiWest Nickel Cobalt Project is regarded as one of the largest and highest quality undeveloped nickel/cobalt resources in Australia. The Project is located in the West Australian Nickel belt, adjacent to Glencore’s Murrin Murrin Nickel-Cobalt Operation.
The region is recognised for its nickel/cobalt production and is well serviced with infrastructure such as public rail linked to ports, gas pipeline, arterial roads, optic fibre communications and long-established mining towns.
The regional rail infrastructure extends to the Malcolm siding near Leonora. The Murrin Murrin Operation has been serviced from the siding for the past two decades. An existing commercial airstrip is located at Leonora with daily services to Perth.
Major imported consumables, including sulphur, are expected to be shipped via the Esperance Port facility and then trucked to site via existing sealed and unsealed roads. Final saleable products are expected to be trucked to Esperance and then shipped to various customers globally.
