NEW YORK — Tsingshan Holding Group Co. Ltd. is building an integrated nickel pig iron (NPI) plant in China that will be the world’s first to use nickel sulfide concentrate directly to make stainless steel, according to Royal Nickel Corp. (RNC), which formed a strategic partnership with the company a year ago.

The plant, which is expected to begin operations this year, is a result of a memorandum of understanding signed in March 2013 between Toronto-based junior miner RNC and Shanghai-based Tsingshan (amm.com, March 12, 2013).....
