TORONTO - Power Nickel Inc. (the 'Company' or 'Power Nickel') (TSX-V: PNPN, OTCBB: CMETF, Frankfurt: IVVI) is pleased to announce that it has issued 5,557,125 shares as a result of warrant exercise.
The $833,568.75 was added to the capital of the Company and will as announced fund the up to 5000 Metre follow-up drill program on its promising Nisk Nickel Sulphide project south of James Bay Quebec.
'We were very pleased with the drilling results at Nisk and are quite excited to be able to follow up our initial program with this new program in Q2 after breakup. We will continue to test the extension of Nisk Main and additionally several new target zones. Globally these deposits tend to exist as pods or as a string of pearls. With each pearl representing a deposit. We believe this is what we have here at Nisk and, with our actual understanding of the Nisk litho-structural setting, we can expect a well-planned drill program to help expand beyond our first pearl at Nisk Main to hopefully other pearls located in our project land package' commented Power Nickel CEO Terry Lynch.
Results obtained during the 2021 drilling program are from 7 holes that were planned to either confirm or expand the historical resources reported in 2009. These results, presented below, successfully demonstrated the existence of the Nisk main mineralized lense, and appear to be representative of what was expected from the historical work.
About Power Nickel Inc.
Power Nickel is a Canadian junior exploration company focusing on high-potential copper, gold, and battery metal prospects in Canada and Chile.
On February 1, 2021, Power Nickel (then called Chilean Metals) completed the acquisition of its option to acquire up to 80% of the Nisk project from Critical Elements Lithium Corp. (CRE: TSXV)
The NISK property comprises a large land position (20 kilometers of strike length) with numerous high-grade intercepts. Power Nickel, formerly Chilean Metals is focused on confirming and expanding its current high-grade nickel-copper PGE mineralization historical resource by preparing a new Mineral Resource Estimate in accordance with NI 43-101, identifying additional high-grade mineralization, and developing a process to potentially produce nickel sulphates responsibly for batteries to be used in the electric vehicles industry.
Power Nickel (then called Chilean Metals) announced on June 8th, 2021 that an agreement has been made to complete the 100% acquisition of its Golden Ivan project in the heart of the Golden Triangle. The Golden Triangle has reported mineral resources (past production and current resources) in a total of 67 million ounces of gold, 569 million ounces of silver, and 27 billion pounds of copper. This property hosts two known mineral showings (gold ore and Magee), and a portion of the past-producing Silverado mine, which was reportedly exploited between 1921 and 1939. These mineral showings are described to be Polymetallic veins that contain quantities of silver, lead, zinc, plus/minus gold, and plus/minus copper.
Power Nickel is the 100-per-cent owner of five properties comprising over 50,000 acres strategically located in the prolific iron-oxide-copper-gold belt of northern Chile. It also owns a 3-per-cent NSR royalty interest on any future production from the Copaquire copper-molybdenum deposit, recently sold to a subsidiary of Teck resources Inc. Under the terms of the sale agreement, Teck has the right to acquire one-third of the 3-per-cent NSR for $3-million at any time. The Copaquire property borders Teck's producing Quebrada Blanca copper mine in Chile's first region.
