Suspensions of Philippine nickel mines over environmental concerns have underpinned a rally in nickel which headed for a 2.50 percent climb on weekly basis.

Indonesia will “almost definitely” keep in place a ban on nickel ore and bauxite exports, the country’s mining minister said, just days after it had considered lifting the restriction to raise extra cash in an overhaul of mining rules. Indonesia banned metal ore exports in early 2014 to encourage miners to build smelters to create jobs and shift exports from raw materials to higher-value finished metals.

But the government has been comprehensively reevaluating the domestic mineral processing requirements, amid concerns that the current deadline for full processing of all minerals by 2017 may not work for certain metals. Indonesia has already floated plans to allow 15 million tonnes low grade ore to leave the country for processing elsewhere. China’s overall exports dropped 10% and imports slipped 1.9% in September, both on a year-on-year basis in dollar-denominated terms.

Describing the international environment as “severe and complicated”, Chinese customs said in a statement that China’s export development continues to face major difficulties amid a decline in trade with its main partners such as the US and ASEAN countries.
