Canada Nickel provides proof that its Crawford Project can sequester carbon

Canada Nickel Company CEO Mark Selby often points out that the rocks of his ultramafic-hosted nickel deposits, north of Timmins, spontaneously soak up carbon dioxide (CO2) when exposed to air.

Now the Toronto-based junior mining company is providing the lab results to back up his claim. For a couple of years, Selby has been pitching its Crawford Project and the Timmins area as an up-and-coming district for the North American electric vehicle sector to source a domestic large-scale and low-carbon supply of nickel.

And to please the government permitters, Canada Nickel has also been promoting Crawford as a future net-zero carbon emitting mining and processing operation that would add exponential value to the coming low-carbon regulatory environments in North America and the European Union.
