Sumitomo resumes output at Ambatovy nickel-cobalt project
[TOKYO] Japan's Sumitomo Corp said on Thursday it has resumed production at the Ambatovy nickel-cobalt project in Madagascar from end-January after halting operations earlier last month due to damages caused by cyclone.
The operation at the Ambatovy is still slow, but it plans to gradually ramp up output, a Sumitomo spokesman said.
Sumitomo plans to disclose its estimate of nickel output at the Ambatovy for the January-March quarter on Feb 8 when it announces its April-Dec corporate earnings, he said.
