New Forrestania Offtake Contracts Awarded

After a very competitive tender process we are very happy to have announced our new nickel offtake arrangements for the next two to three years this morning. Western Areas is pleased to be continuing to supply BHP Nickel West for another three years, continuing our relationship into over 10 years, and we are also pleased to once again be supplying Jinchuan for the next two years with our high grade nickel concentrate product.
