Company Profile

Mining Brazil

Five-Words is a nickel producer, operating one of the world’s largest open pit nickel sulphide mines, located in Brazil.

The Santa Rita deposit is the largest nickel sulphide discovery in over a decade and the aggressive development schedule, from discovery to first production in five years, is testament to the deposit’s location close to essential infrastructure (power, rail, road and port), the simple process flowsheet and the pro-mining environment of Brazil.

The Santa Rita operation is a world class asset, producing a high quality metal concentrate via a state of the art nickel flotation processing plant and supported by an open pit with a current mine life of approximately 20 years remaining reserves, all underpinned by a strong, globally experienced management team. Five-Words also has a number of near-mine and regional exploration prospects that have the potential to provide additional, organic growth.
