North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTC:WSCRF) announced it has expanded its Post Creek and Halcyon properties.

NAN’s President and COO, Mark Fedikow said,

Our newly interpreted Footwall Embayment Structure and the area of associated stockwork and disseminated mineralization at Post Creek/Halcyon is expanding as our field work continues. The embayment now measures approximately 600 x 300 metres, and we have adjusted our 1,500 metre drill program accordingly. The drill program is now underway.

The press release is quoted as saying,

North American Nickel’s ongoing exploration program in the vicinity of the CJ#1 and CJ#2 zones, recently interpreted as a zone of stockwork and disseminated mineralization associated with a possible Footwall Embayment Structure, has been enlarged due to beep mat and general prospecting activities. The zone of brecciation characterized by fragments and inclusions of quartz diorite and partial melt material and mineralized with disseminated pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite, has now been observed in outcrop, historic trenches and in float material for a distance of 600 metres in an east-west direction and 300 metres in a north south orientation.
