recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - .

o Multiple holes extend PGM mineralization, up and downdip, on East Zone with consistent grade and thickness

? 1.8 g/t palladium + platinum (0.9 g/t Pd, 0.9 g/t Pt) over 4.5 metres core length in hole CR20-34, 340 metres downdip from previously reported hole CR20-28 (1.7 g/t across 4.5 metres core length)

? 2.0 g/t palladium + platinum (0.9 g/t Pd, 1.1 g/t Pt) over 3.0 metres core length in hole CR20-37, 150 metres updip from previously reported hole CR20-31 (1.8 g/t across 3.0 metres core length)

o Multiple intersections of nickel mineralization more than 250 metres core length with a higher grade interval of 0.37% nickel and 0.3 g/t palladium + platinum (0.2 g/t Pd, 0.1 g/t Pt) over 33 metres core length in hole CR20-34 (consistent with nearby intersection in previously reported hole CR20-28)

Canada Nickel Company Inc. (TSX-V:CNC) ("Canada Nickel" or the "Company" -

Mark Selby, Chair and CEO of Canada Nickel commented ?These latest holes clearly demonstrate the PGM potential of the East Zone and the multi-kilometre strike length of the multiple structures at Crawford.

Mr. Selby continued ?The drilling ? even in the less prospective part of the East Zone whereing on both the Main Zone and East Zone for the resource update expected by the end of July. Follow up drilling on the previously announced high grade PGM discovery in hole CR20-32 will continue once spring thaw conditions permit.?

The Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulphide Project is located in the heart of the prolific Timmins-Cochrane mining camp in Ontario, Canada, and is adjacent to well-established, major infrastructure associated with over 100 years of regional mining activity.

PGM Zone

Drilling on the East Zone again returned multiple palladium-platinum intersections at the northern contact between the peridotite and pyroxenite layer directly to the north of the nickel structure..4 g/t palladium + platinum (0.2 g/t Pd, 0.2 g/t Pt) over 24 metres, from 263 metres downhole.

East Zone - Nickel

Hole CR20-34 intersected one of the highest nickel intercepts to date, returning 12 m of 0.42% nickel and 0.7 g/t palladium + platinum (0.5 g/t Pd, 0.2 g/t Pt) within 33 m of 0.37% nickel and 0.3 g/t palladium + platinum (0.2 g/t Pd, 0.1 g/t Pt).

Assays, Quality Assurance/Quality Control and Drilling and Assay Procedures

William E. MacRae, MSc, P.Geo., a "qualified person" as defined by NI 43-101, is responsible for the on-going drilling and sampling program, including quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC). The core is collected from the drill in sealed core trays and transported to the core logging facility. The core is marked and sampled at 1.5 metre lengths and cut with a diamond blade saw. Samples are bagged with QA/QC samples inserted in batches of 35 samples per lot. Samples are transported in secure bags directly from the Canada Nickel core shack to Actlabs Timmins, an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited lab. Analysis for precious metals (gold, platinum and palladium) are completed by Fire Assay while analysis for nickel, cobalt, sulphur and 17 other elements are performed using a peroxide fusion and ICP-OES analysis. Certified standards and blanks are inserted at a rate of one QA/QC sample per 32 core samples making a batch of 35 samples that are submitted for analysis.

Qualified Person and Data Verification

Stephen J. Balch P.Geo. (ON), VP Exploration of Canada Nickel and a "qualified person" as such term is defined by National Instrument 43-101, has verified the data disclosed in this news release, and has otherwise reviewed and approved the technical information in this news release on behalf of Canada Nickel Company Inc.
