North American Nickel --- Voisey Bay Version II

North American Nickel strives to ensure exceptional shareholder return on investment by acquiring and pursuing only top quality projects and then putting today’s most up-to-date exploration technologies in the hands of our very experienced and successful geological team.

Property acquisitions have been focused on a new district scale opportunity in Greenland and several in two of the world’s best known and most prolific Nickel Camps in Sudbury, Ontario and Thompson, Manitoba. The Maniitsoq nickel-copper-PGE property in Greenland hosts numerous high-grade nickel-copper sulphide occurrences and is the largest exploration property ever granted in Greenland. It covers 5,106 km2 and is larger than the Sudbury Nickel Camp. The Company utilizes traditional prospecting methods, modern ground and helicopter-borne geophysical technologies, and innovative geochemical testing to prepare these prospective properties for drilling.

The Company will focus on exploring and evaluating the properties in our portfolio, but, will also seek strategic partnerships to advance certain properties and will consider acquiring or joint venturing new advanced projects prospective to host economic deposits.

We are committed to open communication with our shareholders and appreciate your feedback. If you have any comments, questions or concerns we encourage you to contact us at
