BHP Billiton Nickel West are a fully integrated mine-to-market nickel business, with all operations - including mines, concentrators, a smelter and a refinery – located in WA.

With such extensive operations making a significant contribution to the state’s mining and resources sector, the company have faced a number of challenges with the highs and lows experienced by the sector in the past few years.

Nickel West have been forced to not only change the way they operate as a whole, but also re-imagine the future of their extensive operations and implement new and innovative ways to unlock resource potential.

Join us, along with colleagues and peers, as BHP Nickel West Asset President Eddy Haegel discusses some of the challenges faced, as well as highlights the future of the operations in Kalgoorlie and on a larger scale. What changes have been made to keep ahead of the trends in an ever changing market? How have BHP applied innovation and forward thinking to ensure stability in uncertain times, and what does the future hold?
