Alliance Nickel is an ASX-listed exploration and development company with nickel and cobalt interests in Western Australia.
Our principal asset is our 100% owned NiWest Nickel Cobalt Project situated adjacent to Glencore’s Murrin Murrin Operations in the North Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. The Murrin Murrin area is globally recognised as an established nickel and cobalt producing region.
NiWest hosts one of the highest-grade undeveloped nickel laterite Mineral Resources in Australia estimated to contain 85.2 million tonnes averaging 1.03% nickel and 0.06% cobalt. Over 75% of the resource is contained within the Measured and Indicated JORC categories with potential to expand the currently delineated mineralisation with further drilling.
The project is in close proximity to critical open access infrastructure such as rail and gas lines, arterial roads and the mining township of Leonora. Water resources have been established and a 2GL extraction license has been granted. We have completed extensive metallurgical test work focused on Heap Leaching technology. A successful commercial heap leach on similar ore has been trialled at Glencore’s adjacent Murrin Murrin Nickel-Cobalt Refinery.
