Indonesian Companies Likely to Get Some Mineral Export Ban Ease till 2017
CHEMMONITOR.COM - The authorities of Indonesia intend to continue banning the mineral ore export till January 2014. The ban means that the export of nickel ore and bauxite may be possible only after they are refined to nickel pig iron, nickel matte, ferronickel and alumina. However, currently the ministry of Indonesia is proposing the possibility for companies to export such concentrates as copper up to 2017. While mineral export ban is relevant, the companies will have an alternative opportunity to export concentrates.
