About us

Brazilian Nickel Ltd (BRN) is a private UK company which was formed in 2013 to develop its 100% owned flagship project, the Piauí Nickel Project in Brazil.


BRN is focused on nickel production within Brazil in the near term applying the best technology with its strong team.


BRN aims to achieve the highest standards of health, safety and environmental performance and to protect local communities wherever we operate. This includes causing no net harm to the environment and assuring conservation of habitats, flora and fauna plus maintaining and where possible enhancing biodiversity.


BRN will achieve its objectives by applying its knowledge of heap leaching of nickel laterites and project development to fast-track the already well-advanced Piauí Nickel Project through feasibility studies and into production.


While primary focus will remain on completion of the Piauí Nickel Project development, BRN will also seek to acquire a portfolio of nickel laterite resources within Brazil and to advance these projects successfully adding value through each project stage.
