The Opportunity

  • District-scale opportunity: The Maniitsoq property has camp scale potential with multiple mineralized targets distributed across a 75 km x 15km norite belt. The nickel sulphide mineralization is unique in terms of age (at least 3.0Ga), has high nickel tenors (avg. 7-8) and is hosted in pyroxene-rich (versus olivine-rich) mafic and ultramafic intrusions.
  • North American Nickel has 100% ownership of Maniitsoq.
  • Historical data is available ($10M +): historical drilling and further exploration data from both Cominco and Falconbridge and earlier ground-breaking work by Danish company Kryolitselskabet Oresund A/S.
  • Access to capital.
  • Excellent technical team with relevant experience.
  • Secure political jurisdiction and demonstrated exploration potential.
  • New Technologies in an “old” camp successful: New targets identified by helicopter-borne VTEM surveys and drill hole targeting aided by borehole electromagnetic surveys.
  • Drilling prior to 2016 (~20,000 m in 103 holes) has identified multiple new mineralized target areas and has expanded the footprint of several historic nickel sulphide zones.
  • Approximately 10,000m of drilling planned in 2016 in order to prove size potential and identify one or more zones with potential to warrant delineation drilling.
