COMPANY CONFIRMS HIGH PLATINUM AND PALLADIUM VALUES, AND MASSIVE SULPHIDE NICKEL-COPPER MINERALIZATION

Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. (TSX: NCP) (OTCQB: NCPCF) ("Nickel Creek" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the overall results from its 2021 drilling and geophysics program which concluded during the month of August 2021 in Yukon, Canada .

The drilling component of the 2021 exploration program comprised 12 holes totalling 1,257 metres (m), of which nine holes totalling 974m were drilled from two separate drill platforms on the Arch Target at the Nickel Shäw Project. As previously announced on October 8, 2021 , five of the six holes from the first platform hit intersected massive sulphide intervals, and a second platform was placed ~100m from the first platform following the expected trend of mineralization. Of the three holes drilled from the second platform, one hole hit intersected massive sulphide mineralization and one hole was drilled deep into the hanging wall for borehole electromagnetic (EM) surveying.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE DRILL RESULTS:

  • Massive to semi-massive sulphide intervals grading 1.22% to 3.85% nickel (Ni) and 0.92% to 2.77% copper (Cu) over 1.0m to 4.3m – massive to semi-massive sulphide intersected in one additional hole ( see Table 1 for details) .
  • Significant platinum, palladium and gold in these intervals of 1.30 to 3.97 grams per tonne (g/t) of total precious metals (TPM) over 1.0m to 4.3m ( see Table 1 for details) .
  • Geophysics results show untested conductive plates down-dip and down-plunge of current drilling.
  • Significant disseminated and massive sulphide intervals grading 0.32% to 1.41% Ni, 0.14% to 0.69% Cu and 0.45 g/t to 2.49 g/t TPM over 12.4m to 23.7m intervals in nine holes ( see Table 2 for details).
  • Near surface massive to disseminated sulphide mineralization at depths of 30m to 70m .

"We have clearly shown the capability of Nickel Shäw to host near surface massive sulphide and TPM mineralization with significant nickel, copper, platinum and palladium grades," said Stuart Harshaw , President and CEO of Nickel Creek Platinum.

"Further exploration will help define the extent of the mineralized zone while we look to advance the Wellgreen deposit towards a pre-feasibility study . "

"The Wellgreen deposit – situated within the Nickel Shäw property – stands out in this environment of severe shortage of nickel-focused deposits, particularly those located in safe geo-political jurisdictions that welcome environmentally-friendly mine development. Its significant nickel endowment and strong by-product credits, including copper, cobalt, platinum and palladium, form an outstanding platform for value advancement."

Note: All intervals listed are down-hole core lengths, not true widths; interval grades are length weighted. A cut-off grade of 1.0% Ni was applied for the massive sulphide and 0.3% Ni for the disseminated sulphide. Newly reported holes are bolded.

Nine holes were drilled from two drill pads in the Arch area and three holes were drilled on targets in the Burwash area (see Figure 1 for a map of these areas) .

The Arch ultramafic sill has been the subject of several historical exploration campaigns and has had various surveys, including ground EM (VLF) and magnetics, helicopter EM and magnetics (Dighem), soil geochemistry, trenching and limited diamond drilling (three holes totalling 136m ). A shallow historical hole (1988 hole AR88-03, 18.7m length) drilled near the 2020 TDEM conductor returned assays of 1.44% Ni and 0.75% Cu, 0.65 g/t platinum (Pt) and 1.58 g/t palladium (Pd) over 2.6m .

This year's drilling on the Arch Target intersected significant massive to semi-massive sulphide in five holes drilled from the Arch 1 Drill Pad and in one hole drilled from the Arch 2 Pad (see Figure 2) . Grades up to 3.85% Ni, 1.37% Cu and 3.97 g/t TPM over 3.45m were returned. Disseminated sulphide along with net-textured, blebby and interstitial sulphide variably occurs above the high-grade zones with combined massive sulphide and disseminated intervals grading up to 1.41% Ni, 0.55% Cu and 2.49 g/t TPM over 11.95m .

Four holes at Arch were surveyed by borehole EM along with three surface lines. Diamond drilling was performed by Superior Diamond Drilling and the EM survey was completed by SJ Geophysics.

Sulphide mineralization at Arch occurs at the base of an outcropping ultramafic sill ("Arch Sill") that is centred four kilometres west-northwest of the Wellgreen deposit. The sill is approximately 100 metres thick and dips subparallel to the slope at 55-75 degrees to the south-southwest. Massive and semi-massive sulphide mineralization is related to a thin (

Figure 3 is a general north-south cross section through the Arch area looking west. The near surface massive sulphide intersections are identified in red on 5 of the 6 holes drilled from this location.

Figure 4 is a general east-west longitudinal section through the Arch area looking north. Please refer to this figure for the specific Ni, Cu, Co and TPM grades and intersections in each hole.

Surface and borehole EM surveys were conducted concurrently with the 2021 drilling program. SJ Geophysics from Vancouver was contracted to survey four boreholes and three surface lines around the Arch Target. The parameters of the surface survey were adjusted using the information learned from previous work carried out in 2020. The steep topography of the project area can be challenging for surface EM, and the amount of motion noise experienced by the highly sensitive EM sensors in this type of terrain is unavoidable in a production survey. Using the newly calibrated parameters of SJ Geophysics' Volterra system, a significant increase in data quality was observed, compared to previous campaigns.

The three surface lines completed this year utilized the transmitting loop from the borehole electromagnetic (BHEM) survey. These lines ran straight down the steep topography – one east of the BHEM loop, one through the centre, and one to the west of the loop. The central line of the surface survey definitively confirmed the main Arch Target from the 2020 campaign, while the improved data quality allowed for the identification of a previously undetected conductor. This newly identified conductor appears to the west of the western-most survey line ( see Figure 5 ) and requires further investigation.

Four separate drillholes (ASD21-006, -007, -008, and -009) were surveyed with BHEM in the 2021 campaign. These surveys defined a 100-metre-long target that appears to be south of hole ASD21-006, intersecting ASD21-003, and approaching ASD21-007 ( see Figures 3 and 6 ). A second smaller target was located along strike intersecting hole ASD21-008, while a deeper target was identified north of ASD21-009. All of the modelled EM conductors listed appear to have conductivity thicknesses greater than 1,000 Siemens and are considered to be potential massive sulphide targets.

Analytical quality assurance and quality control ("QAQC") included submission of blanks and standards. Various standards were submitted that are appropriate for both low-grade and high-grade Ni-Cu-TPM mineralization. Results from the standards and blanks were reviewed and in the opinion of the Qualified Person, the analytical results pass QAQC review. Sample preparation was completed at the ALS facility in Whitehorse , Yukon and analysis was completed at the ALS laboratory in North Vancouver, British Columbia . Samples were analyzed by 4-acid digestion and ICP-AES (ALS method MEICP-61) with platinum, palladium and gold analysis by fire assay with ICP-AES finish (ALS method PGM-ICP23). Selected massive sulphide samples are still being analyzed for the full PGE+gold suite by nickel sulphide collection fire assay with ICP-MS finish (ALS method PGM-MS25NS).

Three holes were drilled in the Burwash area in the Linda Creek drainage. These holes were drilled to test conductivity from the 2020 surface EM survey and areas with anomalous disseminated sulphide hosted in peridotite outlined from historical trenching and drilling. No significant intervals greater than 0.3% Ni were intersected; however, drilling difficulties due to poor ground conditions prevented a complete test, and exploration potential remains in the Burwash area.

Nickel Creek Platinum

Overview

Future demand for nickel is projected to reach an all-time high, with much of that growth coming from the electric vehicle industry. Within that industry alone, global nickel demand is expected to reach 2.6Mt by 2040 compared to only 92kt in 2020. Specifically, nickel is an important component of EV batteries, and the resulting demand is projected to rise 64 percent between 2019 and 2025 according to research firm Wood Mackenzie.

Generating enough supply, however, is a continuing challenge. The nickel industry is slow to increase capacity efficiently, requiring significant shifts upward in nickel prices as demand rises before there is a supply response. High-profile industry experts like Robert Friedland, Executive Co-Chairman of Ivanhoe Mines and Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, have expressed a need for more nickel production in the future, while CEO and Chairman of General Motors, Mary Barra, stated the need for electric vehicles in the future. Major automotive manufacturers have committed to hybrid and electric vehicles, and international government policies from the US, EU and China aim to continue this trend towards zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. (TSX: NCP; OTCQB: NCPCF) is a Canadian mining exploration and development company focused on delivering value to stakeholders through diversified exposure to nickel, copper and platinum group metals (PGM) in Canada’s Yukon Territory. The Company’s principal business activity is the exploration and evaluation of its 100%-owned Nickel Shäw project, located in southwestern Yukon, Canada.

Nickel Creek Platinum’s Nickel Shäw project contains 1.9 billion pounds of nickel, 1.1 billion pounds of copper and nearly 6 million troy ounces of platinum, palladium and gold. Platinum-group metals (PGMs) account for approximately a quarter of the project’s resources and represent one of the larger PGM resources outside of South Africa and Russia. Copper, which is also critical to electric vehicle infrastructure, accounts for 13 percent, while cobalt, another necessary metal for the battery market, makes up 7 percent.

Nickel Creek Platinum enjoys the support of the Yukon government. The company has a strong relationship with the Kluane First Nation and the local community for the Nickel Shäw project. An Advisory Committee facilitates two-way communication to address any issues or concerns regarding the project. Nickel Creek also offers community support, training, and employment opportunities.

Nickel Creek has a strong commitment to ESG where it continues to collect baseline environmental data on its primary project for permitting purposes and is confirming the science behind the opportunity for carbon sequestration of the future tailings produced, ultimately illustrating a low-carbon footprint for the project.

Thanks to the mining-friendly Yukon Territory and positive relationships with the First Nations and local governments, Nickel Shäw is on its way to becoming one of the most productive initiatives in the industry.

The US and Canada both see nickel and cobalt as critical metals of strategic importance, and Stuart Harshaw, President and CEO of Nickel Creek, is confident the organization can help fulfil the need, stating that “… we have completed extensive metallurgical testwork on the full representation of the deposit to produce a product that can go to market.  With our higher value per tonne than other similar projects, Nickel Creek Platinum is well positioned to move forward.” Mr. Harshaw sees the company “producing nickel for over 25 years.”

Nickel Creek Platinum’s Company Highlights

  • Nickel Creek Platinum is focused on the Nickel Shäw project, which hosts one of the most promising deposits for nickel, copper, cobalt, and PGMs in the world thanks to pre-existing regional infrastructure and an expansive open-pit potential.
  • The Nickel Shäw project location is ideal and low-risk, offering access to the Alaska Highway. The company has long-term relationships with large institutional shareholders, and management has proven experience in related markets and project operations.
