Further reorganization of production due to the intensification of work and the release of the employees can relate to the company's mines and alumina refining businesses. Incidentally industrial mining concern recently announced the possibility of sale of some production capacity to another owner. The first in the list proposed for the sale of production falls redistribution of nickel. Scope of the British concern lately has been quite varied and extended from the extraction of nickel, manganese, carbon and titanium to development of oil and gas deposits. The owners of the company believe that in light of the economic crisis in the European community some business optimization will only benefit corporations.
