News Release

First Atlantic Nickel Uplists in U.S. Market to the OTCQB with DTC Eligibility

Vancouver, British Columbia, June 4, 2024. First Atlantic Nickel Corp. (TSXV: FAN) (OTCQB: FANCF) (FSE: P21) (“FAN” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its uplisting to the OTCQB® Venture Market (the "OTCQB") and the Company’s common shares are now quoted for trading under the symbol “FANCF”. The OTCQB is a reputable U.S. trading platform that enhances visibility and liquidity in the U.S. stock market. This move aligns with the Company’s goal of expanding its U.S. shareholder base, providing optionality to American investors looking for exposure to the critical minerals sector.

Mr. Smith, CEO of the Company comments, "Our commitment to sustainable nickel supports North America's vital industries. Nickel is essential for electric vehicle batteries, infrastructure, clean energy, and aerospace. FAN aims to be a key player in the North American nickel market, offering a compelling opportunity for investors focused on critical mineral supply chains."

In 2022, the U.S. Government designated nickel as a critical mineral1, underscoring its importance to the economy and security. Awaruite, a unique form of nickel found at FAN’s Nickel Project, eliminates the need for smelting, allowing for cleaner, less energy-intensive processing. This makes awaruite an exceptional and sustainable choice for nickel production, helping secure North America's supply chains and reducing reliance on foreign entities of concern for nickel supply & processing.

Mr. Smith added, "Our Atlantic Nickel Project is exceptional due to its size, location, proximity to infrastructure, and the presence of awaruite, which is a rare and unique form of nickel. We are well-positioned to meet the growing demand for responsibly sourced nickel and look forward to sharing the results of our exploration efforts."

Additionally, FAN has received Depository Trust Company (DTC) eligibility for its shares on the OTCQB, broadening its reach to more potential investors and brokerage firms, enhancing accessibility, and potentially increasing liquidity through online transactions.

The Company’s common shares will continue trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "FAN" and on several German exchanges, including Frankfurt and Tradegate, under the symbol "P21".
