VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- North American Nickel Inc. (TSX VENTURE: NAN)(OTCBB: WSCRF)(CUSIP:65704T 108) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at their 100% owned Maniitsoq nickel-copper-PGM sulphide project in South West Greenland. The 2014 drill program will employ two diamond drill rigs targeting existing prospects and regional targets along the Greenland Norite Belt. In addition to drilling, other activities will be ongoing to develop new target areas within the very large property package being explored.
The first drill is focused on the Imiak Hill Conduit Complex ("IHCC") and more specifically on the Imiak Hill zone where previous drilling intersected 4.31% Nickel, 0.62% Copper and 0.14% Cobalt over 18.62 metres core length in hole MQ-13-026 (See NAN announcement dated October 10, 2013). The zones at IHCC remain open at depth, and the 2014 drilling will test the down plunge potential of these nickel-copper-PGM systems. The deepest mineralized intersection to date on the property is in hole MQ-13-028, which reported 3.19 Ni and 1.14% Cu over 24.75m, at depth of approximately 185m from surface (See NAN announcement dated November 5, 2014).
The second drill is scheduled to start in about three weeks and will begin in the Pingo target area, located approximately 25 kilometers northwest of the IHCC. The 2013 Heli borne VTEM survey identified high priority sub surface conductors at Pingo, which are coincident with NAN's surface sampling and historical exploration results; both have documented anomalous nickel sulphide mineralization in noritic rocks.
All diamond drill holes will be surveyed using a 3D (ZXY) borehole pulse electromagnetic system operated by Crone Geophysics and Exploration Ltd., which detects sulphide mineralization up to 100 metres away from the hole, as well as assisting with defining intersected conductor or zone parameters. This method has been utilized over the last two years of drilling at Maniitsoq and has assisted the geological team in understanding the mineralized systems at IHCC.
Crone Geophysics has completed 936 gravity stations, with 627 completed at IHCC and 309 completed at Fossilik. The survey was successfully completed and the crew has returned to Canada. The gravity data is being interpreted by Magma Geoscience Inc. and results are expected in July 2014.
Surface Time-Domain Electromagnetic surveys (TDEM) have been completed on the IHCC and Fossilik target areas. A total of 79.55 line kilometers were surveyed, with 69.4 line kilometers completed over the IHCC and 10.15 line kilometers over the Fossilik area. Survey work will continue for the next 7-10 days focusing on the Fossilik area grid and in particular the Fossilik II showing. Interpretation of the TDEM survey will be completed by Crone Geophysics.

About North American Nickel
North American Nickel is a mineral exploration company with 100% owned properties in Maniitsoq, Greenland, Sudbury, Ontario, and the Thompson, Manitoba nickel belt.
The Maniitsoq property in Greenland is a Camp scale project comprising 3,601 square km covering numerous high-grade nickel-copper sulphide occurrences associated with norite and other mafic-ultramafic intrusions of the Greenland Norite Belt (GNB). The greater than 75km-long belt is situated along, and near, the southwest coast of Greenland, which is pack ice free year round.
The Post Creek/Halcyon property in Sudbury is strategically located adjacent to the past producing Podolsky copper-nickel-platinum group metal deposit of KGHM International Ltd. The property lies along the extension of the Whistle Offset dyke structure. Such geological structures host major Ni-Cu-PGM deposits and producing mines within the Sudbury Camp.

Successful transition from traditional IT to cloud computing requires three key ingredients: an IT architecture that allows companies to extend their internal best practices to the cloud, a cost point that allows economies of scale, and automated processes that manage risk exposure and maintain regulatory compliance with industry regulations (FFIEC, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA). The unique combination of VMware, the IBM Cloud, and Cloud Raxak, a 2016 Gartner Cool Vendor in IT Automation, provides a co...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
