Vale New Caledonia to maintain limestone imports from Philippines

5:39 pm on 2 October 2012

The nickel company, Vale New Caledonia, has denied reports that it sent a delegation to Vanuatu to investigate the possible supply of limestone.

Vale New Caledonia says it receives limestone from the Philippines and is satisfied with this arrangement and is not considering changing provider.

It says should this situation change in the future, Vale New Caledonia will seek expressions of interest internationally before launching a tender.

This comes after a traditional landowner reported that the company was considering sourcing limestone from Vanuatu.
