Mining Stock Education · Canadian Government Endorses and Funds FPX Nickel explains CEO Martin Turenne

FPX Nickel (TSX-V: FPX, OTCQB: FPOCF) is pleased to announce that it has received funding from the Government of Canada to accelerate demonstration of the technical and commercial viability to produce nickel sulphate and cobalt hydroxide for the electric vehicle battery supply chain from the Company’s Baptiste Nickel Project in central British Columbia. On completion of a competitive application process, FPX has been awarded $725,000 by Natural Resources Canada under the Government of Canada’s Critical Minerals Research, Development and Demonstration program, designed to assist the development of critical minerals supply chains to contribute to Canada’s goal of being a net-zero carbon emitter.

CEO Martin Turenne stated: “We are grateful to receive this funding support from the federal government. FPX was honoured to be the only junior mining company in attendance at the December 2022 launch event for Canada’s critical mineral strategy, and for NRCan’s invitation to attend Minister Wilkinson’s recent trade mission to Japan. We see tremendous opportunity for partnership and collaboration between industry and the federal government and First Nations on critical minerals projects such as Baptiste, and look forward to scaling up the production of battery-grade nickel sulphate and cobalt hydroxide from Baptiste and to demonstrating the technical and economic viability of producing battery materials in our upcoming preliminary feasibility study, expected in the third quarter of 2023.”
