Nickel (Ni):

Wyoming has no known commercial nickel deposits. Nickel in Wyoming typically occurs in small amounts associated with other metals. Concentrations up to 3,000 ppm occur along the north side of the Mullen Creek layered mafic complex in the Medicine Bow Mountains in association with silver, copper, lead, and zinc mineralization. Similar concentrations are associated with alteration zones in the Granite Mountains, and lesser amounts occur in some mafic dikes across the state. 

Nickel is addressed directly or indirectly in some WSGS publications including: 

Further investigation is required to fully understand nickel occurrences in Wyoming.
