North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTC:WSCRF) reported it has accelerated plans for detailed exploration on its extensively mineralized Bell Lake property.

The press release is quoted as saying,

Disseminated to solid sulphide mineralization consisting of pentlandite and chalcopyrite in pyrrhotite-dominant sulphide mineralization will be assessed with ground EM geophysical surveys constrained by a new grid to be cut over the entire 1.1 km of the dyke. The line cutting will begin shortly.

NAN’s President and COO, Mark Fedikow says,

 New geophysical and geological data, combined with historic information, has convinced us that there is a significant near surface opportunity and, of course, we are aware of the rich deep deposits that are situated along the prolifically mineralized Worthington Offset. Examples of the deep deposits along Worthington include Vale’s Totten Mine (10.1 Mt grading 1.5% nickel, 1.97% copper, 4.8 g/t platinum and palladium) and Quadra/FNX’s Victoria Mine with 12.5 Mt of 2.3% copper, 2.2% nickel, 8.5 g/t total precious metals (platinum+palladium+gold).
