Indonesian mineral export ban drives up Australia nickel miners

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono signed off on the ban of a range raw mineral ores over the weekend in order to force home companies to build processing plants on Indonesian soil, with the ban particularly affecting shipments of nickel pig iron to China.
