While we will test a broad range of samples during the upcoming phase of feasibility study work and expect a range of recovery results from 30% to 60+%, this second locked cycle test further demonstrates the potential to deliver improvements in nickel recovery substantially higher than the 4-5 percentage point improvement in nickel recovery the Company is targeting for the feasibility study.

Further to my ongoing due diligence on Canada Nickel (OTCQB $CNIKF) (CSE $CNC) (FRA $4E0), below is a news release that could be considered a company catalyst:

Canada Nickel Continues to Demonstrate Substantial Improvement in Metallurgical Performance https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/canada-nickel-continues-to-demonstrate-substantial-improvement-in-metallurgical-performance-and-provides-corporate-update-301482044.html

The Company Canada Nickel Company Inc. today announced further metallurgical results at its 100% owned Crawford Nickel Sulphide Project which delivered what the Company believes is the highest nickel sulphide concentrate grade from a locked cycle test.

The test results also confirm the newest flowsheet improvements, incorporated as part of metallurgical variability testing for the feasibility study, can deliver improved recoveries and improved concentrate quality.

Highlights

  • Second locked cycle test confirms recovery gains, improved concentrate quality from latest flowsheet improvements
  • Total nickel recovery of 63% from low nickel feed grade of 0.19% nickel
  • Nickel sulphide concentrate grade of 46% nickel, believed to be highest grade nickel sulphide concentrate produced in locked cycle test based on published studies
