MANITOBA – Crowflight Minerals of Vancouver has received all the necessary approvals and will begin trading under its new name, CaNickel Mining Limited, on June 23, 2011. The company has also moved its business to British Columbia from Ontario.
The company is also announced that since the restart of nickel mining at Bucko Lake near Wabowden in April 2011, the first shipment, consisting of 85 tonnes of nickel concentrate, has been shipped to Xstrata‘s smelter in Sudbury, ON. The Bucko Lake mill is currently processing 600 t/d of ore, and will increase to 1,000 t/d as mining ramps up. CaNickel expects to produce 5.0 million lb of nickel in 2011, no change to the production guidance previously provided.
