Nickel is vital to the iron and steel industry and has played a key role in the development of the chemical and aerospace industries. Without nickel, the sophisticated industrial complexes that provide our high standard of living and superior military armament would not be possible. Nickel's greatest value is in alloys with other elements, where it adds strength and corrosion resistance over a wide range of temperatures. This Bureau of Mines report presents comprehensive data on nickel including strategic considerations, problems, technology trends and developments, reserves-resources, supply-demand relationships, U.S. and world consumption, economic factors and problems, operating factors and problems, and outlook to 2000.
