NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR TO US WIRE SERVICES

  • Six High Priority Targets were identified across the Langmuir Project through last year's Geophysics review
  • The W4 Zone represents one of the six, and the focus of the very successful Phase 1 program
  • Phase 2 now launched, working through the other High Priority Targets
  • First Nations-owned Missinaibi Drilling Services are contracted for a minimum of 10,000 metres

EV Nickel Inc. (TSX-V:EVNI) ("EVNi" or the "Company") is excited to announce the launch of its Phase 2 drilling program, building from the success of the Phase 1 program on the Langmuir Nickel Project ("Langmuir" or the "Project"). EVNi has contracted Missinaibi Drilling Services Inc. ("MDS" or the "Drillers") to complete the program over the coming months

"2022 will be an exciting year for us to learn more about the Langmuir property and the Shaw Dome mineralization more broadly. Phase 1 was a great success, confirming the W4 mineralization trend extends laterally both to the east and west with upside potential remaining at depth. Nowwe will begin to test the potential of Langmuir beyond the W4 Zone," said Sean Samson, President & CEO of EVNi.

"The Phase 1 drill program confirmed that the Langmuir Project has the potential for high grade, near surface nickel sulphide mineralization as observed at W4 and now we're excited to gain a better understanding of the potential mineralization across our extensive land package," said Paul Davis, EVNi's Vice President of Exploration.

Last year EVNi worked with Condor Consulting Inc., of Lakewood, Colorado ("Condor") and analyzed the historic geophysical data from the Langmuir Project (the "2021 Condor Geophysics Report", for further detail see "Developing the Drilling Strategy" from the Company's December 13, 2021 News Release). Condor identified 16 electromagnetic ("EM") conductor trends across the 9,100 hectare Langmuir land package and developed 6 High Priority Targets ("HPTs", see Figure 1). Langmuir's existing W4 Zone represents one of the HPTs and had been the target of a majority of Langmuir drilling to date, including EVNi's Phase 1 Program.

The Phase 2 Diamond Drill Program began in early January 2022 and will test additional HPTs with approximately 10,000 metres of diamond drilling. Drilling begins on the TZ-3 target, an attractive anomaly located approximately 8.5 km west of the W4 Zone located within an interpreted favourable geological environment with an untested EM conductor, highlighted by Condor. Three holes have been proposed to test this target with up to an additional 6 holes contingent on the success of the exploration drilling.

After completion of the exploration work around the TZ-3 target, the exploration program will shift back towards the W4 Zone to complete drilling for an associated metallurgical study, testing the favourable stratigraphic horizon to the east of the W4 Zone and testing the down plunge potential of the W4 mineralization. In addition to follow-up work on W4, Phase 2 will explore further east, to the W2, another HPT identified by Condor.

Assay QA/QC

Drill core samples from EVNi drilling at the Langmuir Project are cut and bagged at the core logging facility located near the Langmuir Project and transported to ALS Canada Ltd for analysis. Samples, along with certified standards and blanks, that are included by the Company for quality assurance and quality control, were prepared and analyzed at the laboratory. Samples are crushed to 70% less than 2mm. A riffle split is pulverized to 85% passing 75 microns. Nickel, copper, cobalt and sulphur are analyzed by sodium peroxide fusion with an ICP finish and platinum, palladium and gold by fire assay and ICP-AES finish. These and future assay results may vary from time to time due to re-analysis for quality assurance and quality control.

About EV Nickel Inc.

EV Nickel's mission is to accelerate the transition to clean energy. It is a Canadian nickel exploration company, focussed on the Shaw Dome area, south of Timmins, Ontario. The Shaw Dome area is home to its Langmuir Project which includes W4, the basis of a 2010 historical estimate of 677K tonnes @ 1.00% Ni, ~15M lbs of Class 1 Nickel. EV Nickel plans to grow and advance a nickel business, targeting the growing demand for Class 1 Nickel, from the electric vehicle battery sector. EV Nickel has almost 9,100 hectares to explore across the Shaw Dome and has identified 30km of additional favourable strike length.

Renforth Commences Follow Up Work on Recently Discovered Battery Mineralization at Surimeau

Renforth Resources Inc. (CSE:RFR) (OTC:RFHRF) (FSE:9RR) ("Renforth" or the "Company") is pleased to inform shareholders that field operations at Surimeau have resumed, our team of geologists will be following up on the visual mineralization encountered in the May 2022 program with additional prospecting and mapping in the area, stripping and channel sampling.

  • Geologist crew back in the field at Surimeau for follow up channel sampling in areas of the best visual mineralization discovered during May 2022 program.
  • Target areas include mineralization at the western end of the ~20km Victoria Mag/EM structure and newly revealed mineralization at LaLonde.
  • Assay results from the May 2022 program are still not yet received, fortunately, due to the visual nature of the nickel, cobalt, copper and zinc sulphides encountered on surface follow up work is possible.

    Information acquired in the May program, and which will be acquired in this next program, will allow Renforth to better define the surface extent of the battery minerals bearing Victoria Structure which stretches ~20km east to west across the central portion of our 330 sq. km. Surimeau property, road accessible adjacent to the. Canadian Malartic Mine and the Town of Malartic, Quebec.

    Top 5 Nickel Stocks on the TSX and TSXV in 2022

    Click here to read the previous top nickel stocks article.

    After seeing huge gains earlier in the year, the nickel price has cooled, and shares of nickel-focused companies on the TSX and TSXV have subsided along with it.

    Back in Q1, nickel rocketed to US$100,000 per metric ton (MT) — an all-time high and a rise of 250 percent over the course of two days. In response, the London Metal Exchange suspended trading and canceled some trades.

    Even though prices have pulled back, many nickel companies are still up significantly year-to-date, which can't be said for all commodities in this struggling market.
