Nickel production in Africa takes place principally in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe, with much of the South African and Zimbabwean production being a by-product of platinum-group element.
4. South Africa’s Nickel Industry 4.1 Main Producers Nickel production in the past decade has been dominated by Russia followed by Canada, Australia and Indonesia in their order. These countries combined, contributed 56, 3 percent to the total world production in 2006, while South Africa contributed 2, 9 percent.
