Amid the global economic recovery after the 2020’s recession, the global demand for metals was increasing in 2021, which had a positive impact on Nornickel’s operational and financial performance.

By the end of 2021, the Company had almost fully restored suspended operations at its mines and the concentrator, meeting production guidance for nickel and copper and exceeding guidance for platinum group metals.
