ANTAM's export projection this year consists of 25 kilo tons of nickel in ferronickel, 4.05 million wet metric tons of nickel ore, 1.25 million wet metric tons of bauxite ore and 12 tons of gold.

ANTAM's exports are mainly sent to countries of South Korea, Europe, India, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and China.

"ANTAM's ferronickel production and sales in the middle of 2018 are supported by the stable operation of Pomalaa ferronickel platforms and Antam continues to maintain cash cost levels to improve competitiveness and become one of the low-cost global ferronickel producers," Hari said through a press release received on Thursday ( 9/9/2018).
