Potential Indonesian mining suspension deepens nickel supply fears: sources

Provincial authorities in Indonesia’s mining hub of North Maluku province proposed a nickel mining suspension in the region’s Central Halmahera regency amid environmental concerns on Monday September 4. The announcement exacerbated supply concerns in the nickel market, sources said.

Indonesia is the largest global nickel ore producer, with roughly 30% of its annual output from North Maluku, according to the country’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.
