The effort of increasing mineral added value as a whole both vertical and regional is necessary required to improve the national income and regional development. The added value of nickel could be improved through developing the downstream industry such as stainless steel, non-ferrous alloys, other steel alloys, electroplating and chemicals, besides also its regional added value. The purpose of the study is to clarify the beneficial of nickel added value development for the wealth of the people of Indonesia through the improvement of the nickel sector economic added value which is beneficial for the national economic growth and the enlargement of the regional added value which is mainly beneficial for the welfare of the local people who live within the surroundings of the mine site. In fact, the development of both nickel added values have been carried out by the mining companies, even though it needs encouragement and enlargement within the coming years to increase its role to the economic development nationally as well as regionally or locally.
