It is now over a year since nickel, a world class solid mineral, was discovered in Dangoma of Kaninkon Chiefdom in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State, but not much has been done due to huge funding required for the exploration and community related issues, Daily Trust finding reveals.

Nickel is a silvery-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge. It belongs to the transition metals and is hard and ductile, the mineral has international value but it’s exploration requires huge investment.

Sources said Mr Morgan was in the country recently where he updated the government on their effort to commence exploration but that will take some time due to huge investment requirement.

Responding, the President, Nigeria Miners Association, Alhaji Sani Shehu, said his association was not aware of the source of the delay but whatever the reason, it was quite disturbing.
