Victory Nickel Provides Update, Announces Management Change

Toronto, Ontario (FSCwire) - Victory Nickel Inc. (“Victory Nickel” or the “Company”) (CSE:NI, today announced that it has filed its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017, provided an update on Victory Nickel’s outlook and announced a change of Chief Financial Officer.


“Victory Nickel is unique in that three of the Minago project’s most significant value drivers – sulphide nickel, cobalt and frac sand – play crucial roles in the existing and emerging energy markets and we are encouraged by a number of market trends:


  • Sulphide nickel demand is expected to increase dramatically over the next decade due in large part to rising sales of electric vehicles (“EV”). This is being reflected in nickel pricing.


  • Cobalt demand is growing and pricing is up due to the EV market. At the current cobalt price of US$42.00/lb the Minago feasibility study indicates a value of approximately US$188,000,000 for the cobalt in concentrate that could be produced by a mine at Minago.


  • Demand and pricing of frac sand is on the rise in-step with the increasing quantities of frac sand used in well completions, rising rig counts and an oil price that seems to have stabilized at reasonable levels.


For these reasons and more we are reassured that the potential value of Minago and all of Victory Nickel’s projects will be recognized,” said Chief Executive Officer René Galipeau.


Management Change


Ms. Margaret Lai has resigned as Chief Financial Officer of the Company to pursue a new opportunity. Sean Stokes BA, MBA, currently VP Corporate Affairs and Corporate Secretary of the Company, has been appointed Interim Chief Financial Officer pending the selection of a permanent Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Stokes has approximately 30 years of business development/finance experience with a broad range of public and private companies primarily in the metals and mining sector.


"We appreciate all of Margaret's contributions to Victory Nickel and wish her well in the future with whatever she chooses to do,” said Mr. Galipeau.
