Atlantic Nickel Project


  • AWARUITE ADVANTAGE: Naturally occurring nickel-iron alloy enables simple magnetic separation and flotation recovery, reducing dependence on China's control of the nickel sulfide processing supply chain and the need for energy-intensive smelting
  • PRIME LOCATION: 40 km from Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, Canada - a top-tier mining jurisdiction with a pro-mining government and community.
  • STRATEGIC INFRASTRUCTURE: Existing road access allows for year-round workability, with a project boundary just 3 km from a clean hydroelectric power dam.
  • DISTRICT SCALE POTENTIAL: 21,850 hectares of wholly owned land, featuring multiple mineralized zones, indicating potential for a district-scale model with multiple deposits

Project History

  • HIGH-POTENTIAL DISCOVERY: Identified in 2010 by Altius Minerals & Cliffs Natural Resources as a high-potential awaruite nickel-chromium deposit, verified by First Atlantic Nickel Corp.
  • EXTENSIVE LAND POSITION Significant land position covering almost the entire Pipestone ultramafic belt; Elevated nickel and chromium presence
  • CORE TREND AREA: 30 km core trend area with nickel values up to 4260 ppm in surficial sampling
  • BULK TONNAGE TARGETS: Enable quick large-scale resource delineation
  • MAGNETIC SURVEY CORRELATION: High magnetic signature correlates with elevated nickel values

Geological Setting

  • GEOLOGICAL SETTING: Project covers almost entire Pipestone Ophiolite Complex; Large scale Ultramafic rock formation ideal setting for awaruite formation
  • MINERALIZATION: Awaruite, a nickel-iron alloy confirmed to occur over the project with high nickel and chromium content and low sulfur; Elevated nickel values consistently greater than 2000 ppm nickel; Soil samples up to 4260 ppm nickel and rock samples up to 3300 ppm nickel
  • SIGNIFICANT SIZE: Nickel Identified in surface sampling over a 30 km trend aligns with high magnetics; Potential for multiple large scale discoveries on the property; Historic drilling verifies bulk tonnage nickel presence and continuity of grade
  • GEOLOGICAL MODELING: Indicates widespread alteration  and mineralization; Significant untested areas extend under cover
  • HIGH MAGNETICS AND SERPENTINIZATION: Simultaneous formation of magnetite
     and magnetic nickel-iron alloy (awaruite) correlate with magnetic highs and nickel; Mapping and geophysics indicate significant continuity across the property
