I thought it might be a good idea to identify all the low cost producers of Nickel, Gold and Copper. These cheap guys are the ones who should survive in the current downturn (depending on debt levels as well) and be able to take advantage of the upturn, if it occurs...
With quarterly reports due we should get some current production costs.
Here's a few to kick things off, i'll add some more once i've done some more research.
ALB ($5 USD/lb, claiming to be able to reduce to $4 USD/lb)
PNA ($1.07 USD/lb, aiming for $0.9 USD/lb, these numbers include credits for gold and silver)
MML ($200 USD/ounce)
