Giga Metals’ Turnagain Project is one of the largest undeveloped nickel-cobalt sulphide deposits in the world; located in northern British Colombia, 1350km northwest of Vancouver and 70km east of Dease Lake township. The Company completed 10,835 metres of drilling in 40 holes in 2018 and is incorporating them to update the current resource while advancing engineering studies. Previous metallurgical studies indicate Turnagain concentrate to be high quality and easily upgraded to Class One Nickel meeting lithium-ion battery requirements. The Turnagain project comes at an opportune time given the growing demand for nickel and cobalt in the Electric Vehicle (EV) industry .

What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
One of the greatest challenges in the mining sector is timing. Underinvestment in a sector makes funding difficult and ultimately leads to delays in new discoveries and existing project development. Giga Metals idled the Turnagain Project when nickel prices were depressed and now sees demand for battery metals growing rapidly at a time when global warehouse supplies of Class 1 Nickel are dwindling. A combination of talented management, geoscientists and engineers along with the right market conditions are required to bring a world class project into production. The time to advance the Turnagain nickel-cobalt sulphide deposit is now and we have the Team to do it.
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
Giga Metals’ Turnagain Project is a world class nickel-cobalt sulphide deposit, one of the largest undeveloped resources of Class 1 Nickel & Cobalt essential to power the electric vehicle revolution. The project is located in mining friendly British Columbia and can provide an ethically sourced, long life supply of nickel and cobalt to the battery metals sector.
