Horizonte also said that a water permit had been obtained for full-scale operations at Araguaia and that the Brazilian environment agency, SEMAS, had visited the project in late July 2018 as a key part of the construction license approval process.

The company added that as of the end of June, it held a cash position of £8.9mln.

Jeremy Martin, chief executive of Horizonte, said that the project was expected to move into the development stage in 2019, adding that despite recent trade rhetoric affecting numerous commodity prices, nickel prices had been “more resilient in relation to the wider metals market”, with the electric vehicle battery sector showing "strong growth".
