Is it time to own North American Nickel? North American Nickel has accomplished a great deal over the past few months on its Sudbury Camp sized, 100% owned Maniitsoq property in SW Greenland. Is it the world’s next sulphide Nickel Camp? Drill results from initial targets are expected in mid November. Highlights for the Mantiisoq Project: 100% owned 4,983 km2 -‐ Property licence; Mining friendly government with no First Nations issues; Located on the SW Coast of Greenland, near Tidewater with port remaining ice free year round; Maniitsoq Project has features such as the potential for year round shipping and hydroelectricity power generation that favor the economics of mining in an arctic region; Historic Drilling (1965-‐ 1972) -‐ resulted in the discovery of near surface nickel mineralization -‐ Imiak Hill: 9.85 meters @ 2.67% Ni, 0.60% Cu, -‐ Fossilik: 12.89 meters @ 2.24% Ni, 0.63% Cu, and -‐ Quagssuk: 4.95 meters @ 1.97% Ni, 0.43% Cu; December 2011 – Three high priority targets were identified and modelled using Electromagnetic Data from the 2011 Helicopter Skytem Survey. Fifteen years ago Falconbridge and Cominco used fixed wing aircraft to explore and the technology of the day searching for conductive bodies to indicate drill targets could not find any. It simply didn’t work. Present day technology is working; May 2012 – $1.6 Billion international mining and exploration fund, the Sentient Group, purchases 20 million units ($3.4 million) of North American Nickel; their endorsement solidifies market, financial and management support for Maniitsoq. Sentient’s Gilbert Clark appointed to the North American Nickel Board;
July 2012 – Mantiisoq area identified as the earth’s oldest meteor impact site -‐ (similar to the Sudbury Basin) and is believed to be the event that helped create the Greenland Norite Belt; July 2012 – Fifty more conductive zones identified in North American Nickel’s airborne VTEM Plus survey – more than twelve of these fifty have already been identified as higher priority zones; October 2012 – North American Nickel confirms two styles of sulphide mineralization at Mantiisoq. The property has the potential to host not only high-‐grade, semi-‐massive to massive sulphide type nickel copper deposits, but disseminated, bulk mineable nickel copper deposits as well; • There are many Nickel mines globally that are being built at grades of well below 1 %. Historical drilling on the Maniitsoq Project has already intersected grades in excess of 2.5% Ni with significant copper grades. Drill core will be tested for PGM’s for the first time this year.. • Mineralization is at surface and open at depth and along strike North American Nickel shares are trading at mid-‐summer prices with results from this season’s drill program pending and expected shortly. Good share structure: Issued and outstanding 77.2 million shares with Sentient owning 20.0 million shares and VMS Ventures owning 21.8 million shares Fully diluted 124.5 million shares Want to learn more?
