Bonao, Dominican Republic
Americano Nickel, a 100% owned subsidiary of GSOL, acquired Falconbridge Dominicana (Falcondo) in 2015. Following the acquisition, significant investments were made to restart operations following an extended period in which Falcondo had been in care and maintenance.
The first production line re-opened in April 2016 with the second line restarting in October 2018, giving Falcondo an annual production capacity of over 30,000 tonnes of nickel in the form of ferronickel.
Today Falcondo, which is fully integrated from mining to smelting and refining, produces at record-high levels and employs approximately 2,000 people, up from 150 in 2015.
The Dominican Republic State is also a strategic shareholder in Falcondo.
