About Pure Nickel Inc.

Pure Nickel is a TSX-listed mineral exploration company with a premium collection of properties in North America. The Company is currently active on its two Alaskan properties, MAN and Salt Chuck. In 2012 the Company completed an initial drilling program at Salt Chuck that resulted in a new high grade gold discovery (see press release dated December 11, 2012). A follow-up drill program to test the extents of the gold mineralization at Salt Chuck is planned for 2013. In 2012 the Company completed a US$4.2 million exploration program on the MAN property which was fully funded by ITOCHU Corporation. In addition, the Company completed an initial resampling of historic core at its William Lake Nickel project which resulted in the identification of significant concentrations of PGE in the nickel sulphide mineralization. Further resampling is planned for 2013 at William Lake. The Company continues to actively pursue other, non-nickel properties in North America and overseas.
