A rival for Sudbury? Company hopes to turn Timmins into the new nickel capital – by Colleen Romaniuk (Sudbury Star – February 10, 2021)


Canada Nickel Company describes its Crawford site as the largest nickel sulphide discovery since the 1970s

The CEO and Chairman of Canada Nickel Company told a Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce audience on Tuesday that it is coming for Sudbury’s Big Nickel.

The company is in the process of “aggressively advancing” its Crawford nickel-cobalt sulphide project about 40 kilometres north of Timmins, which it describes as the largest nickel sulphide discovery since the early 1970s.

As part of the ongoing project, Canada Nickel recently launched a subsidiary called NetZero Metals to begin research and development on a processing facility that could produce zero-carbon nickel, cobalt, and iron products.

“Nickel is poised for another supercycle driven by continued high growth in stainless steel with this overlay of strong demand coming from the electric vehicle (EV) sector,” said CEO and Chairman Mark Selby.

“The Crawford discovery is not only an important discovery for us, but it will also be an important nickel discovery for the province and for the country as a whole given the scale that we’re unlocking as we go.”
