  • Third hole at Nesbitt Nickel Property drilled 1.8 kilometres east of initial discovery holes intersected 302 metres of nickel mineralization with intervals of visible disseminated sulphides
  • Consistent results with the first two Nesbitt drill holes and Higher Grade Zone at Crawford

Canada Nickel Company Inc. (" Canada Nickel " or the " Company ") (TSXV: CNC) (OTCQB: CNIKF) today announced additional results from its drilling program currently underway at the Nesbitt Nickel property, part of the Company's larger exploration program testing regional targets around its wholly-owned Crawford Nickel Sulphide Project. The two initial discovery holes were previously described in a press release dated June 29, 2021 .

Mark Selby, Chair and CEO said , "This third hole was drilled 1.8 kilometres east of the first two holes at Nesbitt and demonstrates the scale potential of this new discovery on a 3.7 kilometre long target.  Located just 8 kilometres north of Crawford it is a potential source of higher-grade source of feed for the Crawford mill.  The results further underscore the success of our geophysical approach and the district scale potential of our overall land package.  I look forward to continued success at Nesbitt and to our upcoming follow-up on the significant 0.38% nickel interval at the recently acquired Bradburn/Dargavel target."

Nesbitt Nickel Project

The Nesbitt Nickel project is centered on an ultramafic sill that strikes east-west for a distance of 3.7 kilometres and a width that is estimated to vary between 100 to 300 metres (for reference, the Crawford Main Zone resource is 1.7 kilometres long and 225 to 425 metres wide). Consistent with the first two holes, the third hole was collared near the eastern limit of the central Nesbitt trend to explore a coincident (high) magnetic and (low) gravity anomaly (see Figure 2 below) identified during Canada Nickel's geophysical exploration work conducted during the first half of 2021.

Nesbitt NES21-03 was collared on the south side of the intrusion and drilled to the north. The hole was pulled back into the volcanics to test for possible PGM (platinum group metals) mineralization at the pyroxenite- peridotite contact, which this hole did not intersect. It exited the volcanics and intersected nickel-bearing peridotite and dunite with visible sulphides for a core length of 314 metres from 126 metres to 440 metres (including a 12 metre felsic dike), where the hole returned to volcanics. The hole was stopped at 474 metres. NES21-02 was continued from 360 metres (as previously reported) to a final depth of 501 metres, where it intersected a total of 304 metres of nickel-bearing peridotite and dunite from 113 to 417 metres.  The area between NES21-03 and NES21-02 (located 1.8 kilometres to the west) remains untested, along with an area 1.1 kilometres west of the initial hole NES21-01.

Tartisan Nickel

Tartisan Nickel Corp. Announces Intention to Commence Normal Course Issuer Bid to Repurchase up to 5% of Its Common Shares

Tartisan Nickel Corp. (CSE: TN) (OTCQX: TTSRF) (FSE: 8TA) ("Tartisan", or the "Company") announces its intention to commence a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB"), under which the Company may purchase up to 5,446,125 of the Company's common shares, representing approximately 5% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company.

Tartisan is commencing the "NCIB" because the Company's management believes that the underlying value of the Kenbridge Nickel Project which has a Mineral Resource Estimate and Preliminary Economic Assessment, along with the Company's assets as a whole, are not adequately reflected in the market price of Tartisan's common shares. Tartisan Nickel Corp. believes that the repurchase of its common shares for cancellation represents an appropriate use of the Company's financial resources and will enhance shareholder value.
