Western Areas Ltd. said Jan. 21 that it reached off-take deals with BHP Group unit BHP Billiton Nickel West Pty. Ltd. and Jinchuan Co. Ltd. for nickel concentrate produced from Western Areas' Forrestania project in Western Australia.

The Australia-listed company's three-year agreement with Nickel West, starting Feb. 1, is for 10,000 tonnes per annum of nickel in concentrate, capped at 30,000 tonnes. Under a two-year deal with Jinchuan, Western Areas will supply 10,000 tonnes per annum, capped at 20,000 tonnes.

Concurrent with the deals, Western Area said it will allow its contract with Tsingshan Group to expire Jan. 31.
