About us

The Piauí Nickel Project is a nickel laterite heap leaching project in the North-east of Brazil.

BRN is focused on nickel and cobalt production within Brazil in the near term applying the best technology with a strong team of industry professionals.

BRN aims to achieve the highest standards of health, safety and environmental performance and to protect local communities wherever we operate.

This includes causing no net harm to the environment and assuring conservation of habitats, flora and fauna plus maintaining, and where possible, enhancing biodiversity.


BRN will achieve its objectives by applying its knowledge of heap leaching of nickel laterites and project development to fast-track the already producing PNP 1000 to full-scale production.


While our primary focus will remain on completion of the Piauí Nickel Project development, BRN will also seek to acquire a portfolio of nickel laterite resources within Brazil and to advance these projects, successfully adding value through each project stage.
