Nickel is an important metal used for the manufacturing of stainless steel and other alloys due to its very high resistance to corrosion. An increasingly important use for nickel is in batteries, both alkaline fuel cells and nickel metal hydride batteries. Nickel is generally mined from two sources laterite deposits and magmatic nickel deposits. The demand for nickel has remained high and is expected to increase as easily mined laterites are exhausted and more difficult to find magmatic nickel deposits become the primary source.
