Russia produced 221.9kt of nickel in 2018 - up by a marginal 0.4%, owing to increased production from the country’s largest nickel producer, MMC Norilsk Nickel. The company’s total nickel output was 158kt, up by 609t over 2017, owing to a marginal increase in output from Kola MMC. During the first nine months of 2019, the company’s consolidated nickel production reached 167kt, a 6% increase compared with the same period in 2018.
