The nickel (and, in some deposits, copper) contents drive the refining process on the large scale, but these deposits also contain valuable platinum group elements (see Cole and Ferron, ). Cobalt is another metal recovered from Cu-Ni-PGE ores: in the early 20th cenury only a few mining centres were equipped to recover it (Drury, ).

Other countries with substantial nickel production are Russia, Australia, New Caledonia and South Africa.

The ore deposits in Sudbury are part of a large geological structure known as the Sudbury Basin, which are the remnants of a nearly 2 Ba old meteorite impact crater. Sudbury's pentlandite, pyrite pyrrhotite ores contain profitable amounts of many elements--primarily nickel copper.

Pratt, Henry Rowland Cornwall. Sudbury, officially Greater Sudbury (French: Grand-Sudbury), is a city in Ontario, is the largest city in Northern Ontario by population, with a population ofat the Canada Census.

By land area, it is the largest in Ontario and the fifth largest in is administratively a single-tier municipality, and thus not part of any district, county, or regional y: Canada.

Nickel had been used with copper and zinc in China for many centuries and its use had eventually spread to Europe where the alloy of these metals became known as German silver. In the Sudbury area, however, separation of the nickel and copper in the local ores proved very difficult and most local mining companies enjoyed short existences.

Approximately 60 percent of the world’s nickel is produced from Fe-Ni-Cu sulfides found in association with mafic or ultramafic intrusions or flows (Naldrett, ).This includes the Fe-Ni-Cu sulfides found at the margins of the Sudbury Igneous Complex, Ontario, Canada.

Most of the rest of Ni production comes from limonitic and saprolitic laterite deposits, which form by weathering of. Similarities between rocks of the Midcontinent rift and rocks that host the Voisey Bay nickel-copper-cobalt deposit in Labrador, Canada, and the Noril'sk nickel-copper-platinum-group-metals deposits in Russia suggest a high potential for such sulfide deposits in rocks associated with the billion-year-old Midcontinent rift in the Lake.

The main base metals extracted by Vale are copper and nickel. These two metals can be found across the whole world in both underground and open-pit mines. Most of the nickel sulphide that Vale produces comes from Sudbury, Thompson and Voisey’s Bay in Canada. Nickel and copper are the main commodities in these locations, and copper is a co.
