North American Nickel Inc.: Deepest hole in Imiak Hill gives high nickel, copper- and cobalt contents


MQ-hole 13-028 intersected 3,80 % Is und 1,42 % With auf 17,91 Meters

Vancouver, British Columbia, 7. November 2013 – North American Nickel Inc. (TSX VENTURE: NAN) (OTCBB: WSCRF) (CUSIP: 65704T 108) (the "Company") is pleased, announce, that of the previously deepest Sulfidbohrabschnitt at Imiak Hill high nickel, copper- and cobalt contents revealed, convene, that the mineralization has continuity and is open at depth. Imiak Hill is one of the three mineralized Noriten Leitschichtkomplex Imiak Hill (IHCC), also of the Norite Imiak North and Spotty Hill facility.

The IHCC is located in the northern part of the 100 % proprietary nickel-, Copper, Kobalt- and platinum metal project in southwestern Greenland Maniitsoq (see Figures 1 and 2).


Diamond drilling MQ 13-028 intersected in a borehole depth of 182 Meters:

• 24,75 m with 3,19 % Nickel, 1,14 % copper, 0,11 % Kobalt, and 0,01 g / t Platinmetalle

• including 17,91 m with 3,80 % Nickel, 1,42 % copper, 0,13 % Cobalt and 0,01 g / t Platinmetalle

• including 2,40 m with 4,44 % Nickel, 1,13 % copper, 0,15 % Cobalt and 0,01 g / t Platinmetalle

The mineralization in MQ 13-028 corresponds zone 30, one of three mineralized zones, which were previously discovered at Norit Imiak Hill (for details see press releases dated NAN 23. August, 5. September and 10. October 2013 and Figure 3).

As in the longitudinal section in Figure 4 and in cross section in Figure 5 is shown, The mineralization occurs in MQ 13-028 35 to 75 Meters along the dip of the previous high grade hole intercepts in holes MQ 13-026 (25,51 Meters with 3,25 % Nickel, 0,48 % Copper and 0,11 % Kobalt) and MQ 13-024 (14,90 Meters with 2,67 % Nickel, 0,39 % Copper and 0,09 % Kobalt) on. By the company 2013 Confirm holes drilled and the survey results, that the sulphide mineralization at Hill Imiak contains high levels, And has continuity in the depth is open. The company is waiting for the receipt of further investigation results of other mining areas in Maniitsoq.

Neil Richardson, COO of North American Nickel, explained: "The high-grade drill core from hole 28 contains with bore 26 comparable levels, the magma conduit our model for the high-grade nickel-, copper- support and cobalt mineralization at Hill Imiak. It was interesting, in hole 28 to encounter much higher copper contents, what in the larger amounts of chalcopyrite in the almost solid sulphide mineralization, we have reported the beginning of autumn, is reflected. With a depth of 180 Meters below the surface is at the Intersections in MQ 13-028 to the deepest mineralized drill intersection to date at Imiak. He has a true thickness of about 11,2 Meters and also remains open at depth. "

Richardson adds: "The drilling program 2014 will focus on extending the known mineralized zones and exploration of further mineralization within the IHCC. We are looking for particular geological environment, for the accumulation of large amounts of nickel, copper- and cobalt sulphide mineralization is suitable. Our main goals are the contact zones of Lying Noriterzkörper, be the indentations along this contact zones and other parts of Leitschichtsystems, where the speed of the nickel-rich Noritmagmas could have been reduced at various locations. The ability, that mineralization extends over the Noriterzkörper out into the surrounding rock, will also be analyzed. "

Details of the borehole sections are given in Table 1 listed, while the coordinates of the location of MQ 13-028 in the table below 2 are given. A copy of the survey is well on the Company's website ( available. As shown in Table 1 It can be seen, includes a bore 4,44 Meter section of rock unmineralisiertem, which coincides with a leuco-gabbro transition.

As in the previous drill holes were sunk in Imiak Hill mineralization is again embedded in dark green-gray massive and weakly magnetic Norit MQ 13-028, the medium places- has to coarse-grained Noritklasten. The downhole surveys and other maps are available on the Company's website at available.

Drill core assay results are in the context of quality assurance- and quality control measures, the use of certified standards with known precious- and base metal contents, Include standard blanks and control charts, evaluated, to determine the accuracy and precision of analytical results. The analysis of the core samples was by ALS Scandinavia AS is Öjebyn (Sweden) carried out. To determine the element concentrations in rock samples submitted to ALS three methods of analysis were used: (1) a scan for multiple items, following a four-acid digestion and ICP / ICP-AES finish; (2) To-, Pt- and Pd-Lead fire assay on a 30 gram sample with ICP-AES finish; and (3) Samples containing more than 1,00 % Nickel and copper are again by means of the ICP-AES method, which was calibrated for Erzgehaltnachweisgrenzen, analyzed. Samples containing more than 0,50 % Sulfur was analyzed using a Leco furnace and infrared spectroscopy again.

The nickel, Copper, Kobalt- and platinum metal project in southwestern Greenland Maniitsoq includes the 75 Kilometer Greenland Noritgürtel and is 100 % owned by North American Nickel.
