TORONTO, July 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Nickel Creek Platinum Corp. (TSX: NCP) (“Nickel Creek” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Company formally commenced the drilling portion of its 2022 field program on July 1, 2022 at its 100%-owned Nickel Creek’s Nickel Shäw Project in the Yukon, Canada.
Following successful completion of the recent C$2.7 million private placement, which included a Flow-Through Offering of C$2.4 million, the Company has secured the necessary funding required to perform an exploration program for the 2022 field season to collect data to facilitate completion of a Prefeasibility Study (“PFS“). This work will include PFS drilling on the Wellgreen deposit to support conversion of inferred mineral resources to indicated mineral resources and to collect additional geotechnical and hydrogeological data including the characterization of the proposed waste dump and tailings sites. Further drilling is also planned at the Arch exploration target to define the extent of mineralization.
Stuart Harshaw, President and CEO commented “We are looking forward to advancing the Nickel Shäw Project with our extensive program this summer. The nickel market needs projects like ours to develop in order to supply the increasing demand for nickel and copper to produce electric vehicles.”
As part of the 2022 field program, the Company will be supported by the Kluane First Nation, the Company’s First Nations partner via its operating companies, Kluane Development LP and Kluane Energy LP.
