TORONTO, Aug. 3, 2022 /CNW/ – NiCAN Limited (“NiCAN” or the “Company”), a nickel exploration company, will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXv”) under the symbol “NICN” at market open today. The public listing follows the successful completion of an amalgamation with 1287390 B.C. Ltd. and a concurrent financing, raising approximately C$6.1 million.

Brad Humphrey, NiCAN’s President and CEO commented, “We are extremely excited to be transitioning to the public markets and very proud of our team at NiCAN. I want to thank the NiCAN team, advisors, and Board, for their hard work and dedication, as well as our very supportive shareholders. NiCAN was established just 15 months ago to focus on nickel projects in stable mining regions and since then has been able to quickly build a highly prospective package of projects in Manitoba, Canada. NiCAN is eagerly awaiting assay results from its initial reconnaissance drilling program on the Wine property, located near Snow Lake, and looks forward to further evaluating the Pipy property, near Thompson.”

Mr. Humphrey continued, “NiCAN is in an excellent position with two strong projects, a well funded balance sheet, and a team keen to assess and prove up its existing assets, as well as expand its portfolio of projects. Over the coming weeks NiCAN anticipates releasing assays from the Wine Phase I drilling program and outlining upcoming plans for the project, after incorporating the new assay results and additional airborne survey work. The Company also expects to release the next steps for the Pipy project. The NiCAN Team has accomplished a lot in a very short period of time, and with its recent public listing, expects to continue this rapid growth.”

NiCAN Limited – New Canadian Nickel Exploration Company

NiCAN was established in April of 2021 to focus on nickel-copper exploration opportunities on known mineral belts in stable jurisdictions. With that objective, NiCAN identified two highly prospective opportunities in Manitoba, the Wine Project in the Flin FlonSnow Lake area, and the Pipy Project in the Thompson area, both proximal to areas of known mineralization and mines.

With strong support from stakeholders and the Board of Directors, NiCAN rapidly progressed the Wine project over the last year, including: completing extensive historical data compilation and evaluation, and developing a significantly improved database from which to drive new geologic models and understanding for subsequent drill testing.

NiCAN commenced its first drill program on the Wine Project in January 2022. This confirmation and reconnaissance drilling campaign consisted of 17 diamond drill holes for approximately 1,600 meters, following up on historical drilling, surveys, and data compilation. This program tested the Company’s reinterpretation of the geologic model at the Wine Occurrence and several additional prospective targets in the immediate area. Historical drilling on the Wine Occurrence returned significant results including 20.4m of 1.3% nickel and 2.27% copper. This program has been completed and we are awaiting assay results.

At the Pipy Project in the Thompson area, NiCAN has also undertaken extensive data compilation, interpretation, and evaluation. This property was drilled in the 1960’s by INCO Limited, however, without the benefit of utilizing modern ground penetrating geophysical technology. NiCAN has completed a high-definition airborne UAV Magnetometer survey and is utilizing this new structural information in conjunction with the historical drill logs to evaluate next steps.
