CanAlaska will acquire the Mel Deposit lease and surrounding claims by paying C$300,000 and issuing 2,000,000 common shares of the company, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. 

CanAlaska’s CEO, Cory Belyk, explained that the acquisition of the high-grade Mel nickel deposit and its surrounding exploration claims in the north Thompson Nickel Belt region compliments the company’s existing nickel assets.

“It provides the company with a 100 per cent owned and large nickel resource in the 5th largest sulphide nickel belt in the world near Vale’s Thompson operation. This acquisition further positions CanAlaska’s district-scale nickel assets, now over 40,000 hectares total, as a front-runner among global nickel exploration portfolios that will allow the company to attract outside investment in a strengthening nickel market. New sources of nickel supply are scarce, and demand is quickly growing as the world continues to electrify toward a carbon-free energy future.”

CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. is engaged in the exploration of uranium, nickel, and diamond properties. It holds interests in approximately 3000 sq. km. in Canada’s Athabasca Basin.
