Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/09/2014 -- Nickel among other base metals is the major commodity produced in the Philippines. In 2013, the country's nickel mine production was up by 6% over 2012. The country's average nickel mine production more than tripled in 2006 to 92,700 metric tons accounting for around 3.7% of global nickel mine production according to the USGS. The substantial growth in production was mainly due to higher prices on the global market and a surge in demand that started during the second quarter and continued until the end of the year.
- The major mining companies in the Philippines consider the Indonesian ban on exports to have a positive impact on nickel mining in the country. However, a decrease in foreign investors and negative local environmental and socioeconomic effects are the key factors affecting the country's mining industry.
