The Federal Government has confirmed knowledge of the existence of Nickel metal in Dangoma, a farming community in Kaduna State.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Solid Minerals Development, Mohammed Abbas, said the ministry was aware of the existence of the mineral in the area.
According to him, since the first discovery was made many months ago, technical experts from the ministry had been following up on the development as provided by law. He said the ministry understood the excitement of many Nigerians concerning the discovery.
Nickel, a silvery-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge, sells for about $4.43 per lb at the international market. It is used in the manufacture of several steel/metal-based items including coins and alloy-based products. Some of world’s largest producers of the metal include Australia, Botswana, Brazil, Indonesia, Canada and China.
