REPORT: Horizonte Minerals- Accelerating plans to bring the Araguaia ferronickel project into production (HZM)
Against a backdrop of surging nickel prices (up over 50% year-to-date), Horizonte Minerals (LSE:HZM) has made great progress at its wholly-owned Araguaia nickel project in Brazil over the course of 2019.
Araguaia is a tier one mining asset with a high-grade, scalable resource that Horizonte plans to develop as Brazil’s next major source of production for ferronickel – an alloy that contains c.30pc nickel and c.70pc iron.
With first production scheduled for 2022, MiningMaven has taken a deep dive into Araguaia, its background, and Horizonte’s two stage expansion plans as well as looking at why the project’s economics are so appealing.
