Vale is the world’s second largest producer of nickel, one of the most versatile metals in existence.
Hard and malleable, nickel resists corrosion and maintains its mechanical and physical properties even when subjected to extreme temperatures.
Our high-quality nickel is also valued for its applications in plating and batteries. It gives your bathroom taps and shower heads their bright metallic finish. It’s in everything from your coins to your car. You’ll also find it in your mobile phone and the rechargeable batteries that power it while you’re sending a text, checking email and staying in touch.
