CREDITORS of Clive Palmer's Queensland Nickel have voted to liquidate the company, a fortnight after administrators made the recommendation amid crippling debt.

Creditors, which includes 800 sacked workers, agreed at a meeting in Townsville to wind up the company.

Workers are owed more than $70 million but the meeting has been told almost $60 million will be covered by the Federal Government's entitlements scheme.
