The extensive mining and nickel processing has large impact on the local environment. The coastal waters and nearby land is contaminated by the pollution from mines and processing plants.
The nickel production is concentrated on the factories "Pedro Soto Alba" and "Ernesto Che Guevara", of Moa, in territory of Holguín in the Oriente of Cuba. While the Nickel Processor Plant "Pedro Soto Alba" is a limited liability company between Cuba and Sherrit International Canadian Company, the "Ernesto Che Guevara" belong to the government enterprise Cubaníquel. As average per year, The "Soto Alba" and "Che Guevara" produces more than 30.000 tons of nickel each one.
