North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTCBB:WSCRF) added Dr. Tony Naldrett, an internationally acclaimed expert on magmatic sulphide deposits, to its Advisory Board.
As quoted in the press release:
Over a career spanning more than forty years, Dr. Naldrett’s research has focused on magmatic sulphide deposits, the magmas from which they have formed, the origin of these magmas in the mantle, the chemistry controlling the segregation of sulphides from the magma, and the subsequent separation of minerals from the cooling sulphides that are important in the beneficiation of the ores.
Recently, Dr. Naldrett was the featured speaker for NAN’s Greenland and Copenhagen lecture series on nickel sulphide deposits, with a focus on Greenland where NAN is exploring its 5100 square kilometer 100% owned Maniitsoq property in south west Greenland. While in Greenland, he was able to inspect Maniitsoq project drill core, which is stored in Nuuk.
North American Nickel Inc. CEO, Rick Mark, said:
We are honored that Dr. Naldrett has agreed to join the Company’s Advisory Board and become part of a growing team providing guidance to the immediate and long term development of our Maniitsoq nickel-copper-cobalt-PGM sulphide project. Literally, he has been on the ground of all the significant nickel sulphide deposits in the world. His understanding of these very complex systems is unparalled and he will be a great help to the Company’s technical team, as they explore and develop what we believe can be the world’s next nickel sulphide camp.
