Tartisan Nickel Corp. Drills Deepest Hole To Date at The Kenbridge Nickel Project and Intersects 3.18% Ni, 0.19% Cu Over 1.05 Metres. Updates Progress at The Kenbridge Nickel-Copper-Cobalt Project, NW Ontario

Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE:TN; OTCQX:TTSRF; FSE:A2D) ("Tartisan", or the "Company") is pleased to provide diamond drill core assay results and an update for its diamond drilling program at the 100% owned Kenbridge Nickel Project located in the Kenora Mining District, Ontario

Hole KB21-204 intersected two nickel-copper zones at a drill depth of 993.55 metres and 1,002 metres. The two zones are interpreted to represent the downdip extension of two horizons (Zone A and Zone B) intersected in holes KB21-198, KB21-200 and KB21-202. In KB21-204 Zone A returned 1.05 metres of 3.18% Ni and 0.19% Cu including a higher-grade section of 0.35 metres of 7.73% Ni and 0.16% Cu. In the same hole Zone B returned 7.8 metres of 0.85% Ni and 0.54% Cu including 4.0 metres of 1.15% Ni and 0.71% Cu. Hole 204 is located approximately 150m below the deepest drill hole intersection completed in the 1950's (Drill hole K2011- 4.25% Ni over 3m) and is the deepest drill intersection on the project (see Figures 2 and 3). Holes KB21-205 and KB21-206 have also been completed and have been submitted to the laboratory for assays.
