Australia’s Nickel Mines company has completed the acquisition of an additional 20% stake in Angel Capital, a Singaporean holding company that is ultimately the owner of the Angel Nickel project in Indonesia.

With the latest acquisition, Nickel Mines holds a 50% interest in the Angel Nickel project.

It acquired the initial 30% interest in the project earlier this year.

The Angel Nickel project features four next-generation RKEF lines and a 380MW power station that is currently under construction at Indonesia Weda Bay Industrial Park (IWIP) on Halmahera Island in the North Maluku province.

The firm has secured the right to increase its interest in Angel to 80% by 31 December 2021.

According to an agreement with its partner Shanghai Decent Investment Group, Nickle Mine paid $137.6m and would have to pay $210m to increase its stake to 80% by the end of this year.
