Western Areas keeps Forrestania nickel exports on target
Australianmining - Western Areas is completing nickel production as planned, delivering concentrate to local and export customers as normal as it works under new coronavirus policies and procedures.
Under the health procedures, Western Areas has ceased fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workers who travel from interstate to work at the Forrestania nickel operation, due to the Western Australian border closure.
This represents a small number of the total Forrestania workforce, according to Western Areas.
These measures are in line with the directives from both the state and federal governments and health departments, to minimise the risk of an outbreak at mine sites.
