North American Nickel Inc.: 2014 Planning Underway for Maniitsoq Nickel Sulphide Project; Deep EM, Helicopter, Camp Logistics and Drilling Contracts Tendered






North American Nickel Inc. (TSX-V:NAN) (OTCBB:WSCRF) (CUSIP:65704T 108) is pleased to announce plans are now being implemented to begin its 2014 exploration and drill programs at its 100% owned Maniitsoq nickel-copper-cobalt-PGM project in Southwest Greenland.

The Company has now awarded or tendered the following contracts:



—  Air Greenland has been selected again this year to provide helicopter

    support for all of NAN’s field programs. Their experienced pilots and

    favourable terms insure quality service at competitive pricing for all

    our exploration activities, including drilling.

—  Tenders for camp and logistics services are being evaluated and will be

    awarded in the coming week.

—  Tenders for surface TDEM and gravity surveys will also be awarded in the

    coming week. The ground teams are scheduled to begin work in mid-April.

    The purpose of these surveys is to assist in identifying deep targets at

    the Imiak Hill Conduit Complex and the Fossilik showing, which is

    approximately nine km to the south of the IHCC. The programs and

    analyses are scheduled to be completed by the end of May, in advance of

    the 2014 drill program.

—  Drill tenders have been received and will be awarded by the end of

    March. Drilling is scheduled to begin in early June this year with an

    aggressive program at the IHCC, the site of high grade intersections

    including, at Imiak Hill, MQ-13-026: 18.62m core length grading 4.31% Ni

    0.62% Cu and 0.14% Co from 156.70m to 175.32m, announced on October 10,





More than one hundred new conductive targets identified from our 2013 airborne EM survey have now been reviewed based on their geophysical responses. Those targets interpreted to be high priority will be assessed by surface prospecting and geological mapping and then prioritized for the regional drill program, which is planned to be supported by a second drill, scheduled to begin in early July.


North American Nickel CEO, Rick Mark, states: “We have learned a great deal about working in Greenland and even more about the northern portion of our 100% owned, Sudbury-basin sized property located in the moderate climate of southwest Greenland. The incredible high grade intersections from the Imiak Hill Conduit Complex last year have captured the nickel world’s attention. Our geological model is supported by the mineralization improving as we go deeper and the three mineralized conduits at the IHCC being open at depth. We are committed to aggressively drilling to test for underlying nickel sulphide deposits. The grade is evident; this year we plan to build the tonnage. It will be an exciting year for all of our shareholders.”
