Sudbury Platinum Corporation to Acquire 100% of Aer-Kidd Project

TORONTO, Aug. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Royal Nickel Corporation ("RNC") (TSX: RNX) is pleased to announce that Sudbury Platinum Corporation ("SPC"), a private company in which RNC has an interest, plans to exercise its Right of First Refusal to purchase CaNickel Mining Company Limited's ("CaNickel") 100% interest in the Aer-Kidd Project in Sudbury Ontario for a cash payment of $1,250,000.  By doing so, the Option and Joint Venture Agreement currently in place between SPC and CaNickel dated October 1, 2012 will be terminated.

"I am very excited that SPC has decided to purchase CaNickel's 100% interest in the Aer-Kidd Project after identifying some very compelling exploration targets.  The acquisition will, when executed, simplify the ownership structure from the current Option and JV arrangement and simplify plans to advance the project. RNC continues to be enthusiastic about Aer-Kidd's untested potential given its location on the Worthington offset dyke between known high grade Ni-Cu-PGE resources at the Totten mine (Vale) and the Victoria project (KGHM)," said Mark Selby, President and CEO of Royal Nickel Corporation. "The exploration activities at Aer-Kidd are being led by Scott McLean and the highly skilled and experienced SPC management team, who has a track record of consistent exploration success in the Sudbury Basin such as discovering Glencore's Nickel Rim South mine."

SPC and Transition Metals Corp. (Transition) also announced that SPC has closed a non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of $637,500.  SPC issued 1,720,000 units and 830,000 flow through shares each at a price of $0.25. Each unit consisted of one common share and one common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to purchase an additional common share in SPC at $0.45 for a period of eighteen months. Transition Metals Corp. currently owns 57% of SPC and RNC owns approximately 23% of SPC.

Aer-Kidd Project
Aer-Kidd is a 280 hectare property covering approximately 1.4 kilometres of the Worthington Offset (Worthington offset) Dyke located near Worthington, Ontario in the Sudbury Basin area. Past production on the Aer-Kidd property has come from numerous shallow underground and surface workings (Howland Pit, Rosen and Robinson Deposits).

The Aer-Kidd property is located centrally between two significant known resources also on the Worthington offset, Vale's Totten mine (10.1 million tonnes grading 1.5% Ni, 1.97% Cu, 4.8g/t PGM)1 and KGHM's Victoria project (14.5 million tonnes grading 2.5% Ni, 2.5% Cu, 7.6 g/t PGM)2.

The disclosure of the technical information contained in this news release has been approved by Alger St-Jean, P. Geo., Vice President Exploration of RNC, and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101.
