Greenfield exploration takes methodical work and patience, plus a bit of luck! And the study work needed for our processing will also take some time, so for NickelSearch, it is about having the right people in the team, doing our planning well, being transparent and consistently stick to our plan (but also sufficiently agile to respond to new information).
We are at the start of our exploration and our processing study work, so it is a great time to join!
We represent great value in terms of investment dollar, we are in a prime nickel location, and we have the fundamentals in place to deliver.
