BHP Scraps Nickel West Sale

BHP Billiton Nickel West Pty Ltd. withdrew from Nickel West sale which include the Mt Keith, Cliffs and Leinster mines and associated concentrators, the Kalgoorlie smelter, the Kambalda concentrator and the Kwinana refinery. BHP said, “This review is now complete and the preferred option, the sale of the business, has not been achieved on an acceptable basis. The company will only pursue options that maximise value for shareholders. At this time, Nickel West will remain in the BHP Billiton portfolio as a non-core asset and the company will continue to operate the business to realise its full value.” The business will continue to be run for cash, meaning investment in the business, other to maintain safe and reliable operations, comes to a halt.
