Reuters reported that London nickel prices eased on Friday, slipping from a 16 month high struck in the previous session, after Indonesia's nickel miners association said it had urged the government not to bring forward a ban on mineral ore exports. Three-month nickel on the London Metal Exchange fell as much as 1.5%, and was down 0.8% at USD 15,755 a tonne. The most-traded October nickel contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange closed up 5.2% at CNY 126,290

The association's Secretary General Ms Meidy Katrin Lengkey said the group had indirect knowledge of a plan to revise the date of enforcement of the ban but told Jakarta to be consistent with the 2022 deadline because people have invested money to build smelters.
