Geophysical Work Begins at North American Nickel’s Maniitsoq

North American Nickel Inc. (TSXV:NAN,OTCBB:WSCRF) announced that Crone Geophysics & Exploration Ltd. has mobilized its crews to the Imiak Hill Conduit Complex at the Greenland-based Maniitsoq nickel-copper-cobalt-platinum-group metals project.

As quoted in the press release:

The geophysical survey work now underway consists of surface time-domain PEM and gravity surveys in the Imiak Hill Conduit Complex, where significant nickel-copper-cobalt PGE mineralization has been intersected in drill holes by the company over the past two drill seasons.

Dr. Mark Fedikow, president of North American Nickel, commented:

Our deepest hole to date at Imiak Hill in the IHCC intersected high-grade massive sulphide nickel-copper mineralization 185 m below surface. The new geophysical ground surveys are designed to look below that depth and define the extent and shape of our high-grade mineralized zones providing plunge, strike and dip attitudes for the mineralization. The results from these 2014 ground geophysical surveys coupled with the airborne surveys and drill results from 2012 and 2013 will assist with drill targeting at the IHCC. Our team worked last week with four seasoned and internationally experienced nickel sulphide geoscientists. The agenda included a thorough review of the IHCC and all the regional norite-hosted nickel sulphide targets identified as a priority for the 2014 season. We look forward to including them again along the path to discovery at Maniitsoq.
