Domestic Productions Of Nickels In Japan In Aug. / 10 Increased Compared To Those In 2009
= Output Of Nickel Metal Increased By 27% And That Of Ferro-Nickel Also Increased By 22%
According to the monthly statistics concerning the quantities of steels and nonferrous metals produced in Japan in January - August of 2010 as well as in a single month of August, which were compiled and released in last week by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan produced <> nickel metal : 3,465 tons and <> ferro-nickel : 5,966 tons on Ni content base (28,871 tons on material base) in August of 2010.

Therefore, the total quantities of nickels produced in Japan in January - August of 2010 were <> nickel metal : 26,527 tons and <> ferro-nickel : 44,964 tons on Ni content base (including an estimation). When the quantities of nickels produced in Japan in January - August of 2010 are compared with those in the same period of 2009, <> nickel metal increased by 46.1% and <> ferro-nickel : increased by 19.2% respectively. Even in comparison with those in the same period of 2008, both quantities of nickel metal and ferro-nickel produced in Japan in January - August of 2010 had exceeded.

The quantities of nickel metal (on material base) and ferro-nickel (on Ni content base) produced in Japan in January - August of 2010 were as per the table shown below ;
