March Q 2010 coincided with ~40% increase in nickel price from US$8.50/lb at start of January to current price of US$12.00/lb nickel (19th April 2010). The Board remains focused on the core business of low cost, long life nickel production at the 100% owned Forrestania Project and on generating significant returns to shareholders. The Board is also looking at ways to fund future growth in the Company (eg: Diggers South mine, Finland Joint Venture) without impacting the core cash flow business.
