Nickel 28 Releases Update on Giga Royalty: Secures Mitsubishi as Development Partner
TORONTO, ONTARIO, August 15, 2022—Nickel 28 Capital Corp. (“Nickel 28” or the “Company”) (TSXV: NKL) (FSE: 3JC0) is pleased to provide an update on its 2.0% Net Smelter Return (“NSR”) royalty from Giga Metal’s (“Giga”) Turnagain Nickel/Cobalt deposit. Earlier today, Giga announced the formation of a joint venture with Mitsubishi Corporation to pursue the development of the Turnagain Nickel Deposit in northern British Columbia, Canada. This joint venture reinforces the Company’s belief that the Turnagain deposit is world class and will meet the highest environmental standards. Turnagain is extraordinarily well positioned to support the anticipated electric vehicle demand growth in North America for battery metals such as nickel and cobalt. Given the global stature of Mitsubishi Corporation and their strategy to invest in top tier mining projects, the Company believes that the Turnagain project has cleared an important hurdle towards achieving development.
