Following closing of the Offering, Agnico Eagle Mines Limited (" Agnico Eagle ") acquired the units, and as a result, holds approximately 12% of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares on a non-diluted basis, and 15.6% on a partially-diluted basis (assuming exercise of all of the Warrants).

"We are very pleased to welcome Agnico Eagle, one of the largest mining companies in Canada , as an investor in Canada Nickel. Agnico Eagle has a long operating history in the Abitibi region, deep technical expertise and a track record of operating success with its core open pit, bulk-tonnage, gold assets in the Abitibi at both Canadian Malartic and Detour Lake.
