Vancouver, British Columbia, March 9, 2022 – Flying Nickel Mining Corp. (“Flying Nickel” or the “Company”) (TSXV:FLYN) is pleased to announce the signing of a Relationship and Benefits Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Norway House Cree Nation (“NHCN”) to advance the development of the Minago Nickel Project (“Minago”).  

Substantial binding terms and conditions have been agreed to in the MOU that will form the basis of a Relationship and Benefits Agreement (“RBA”), scheduled to be finalized on or around June 30, 2022.  Signing of the MOU between Flying Nickel and NHCN lays the groundwork for completing an agreement with the other three adjacent First Nations. The RBA will provide the  terms of cooperation between Flying Nickel and Norway House including: (i) establishing a cooperative and mutually respectful long-term relationship; (ii) providing employment capacity support and economic opportunities to NHCN and its members; (ii) securing NHCN’s support with respect to certain regulatory approvals for Minago;  and (iv) a joint effort to minimize  unforeseen disruption and providing certainty for investment, access, and ownership of resource rights in respect of Minago.

This MOU represents a significant milestone for the development of Minago, one of largest open-pit optimized greenfield nickel projects in Canada, and for the advancement of the relationship with NHCN. The MOU also demonstrates both parties’ commitment to environmentally responsible mineral exploration and development, with the lowest carbon footprint possible, utilizing Manitoba’s northern renewable electricity generation.
