Hard Creek Nickel Corp.: Ankunft der dritten Bohranlage an der Hard Creek-Liegenschaft


31. Juli 2007 (VANCOUVER,
KANADA) ? Die Hard Creek Nickel Corp. (TSX.V-HNC; FSE: BRR) freut sich, die Neuigkeiten zum aktuellen Bohrprogramm des Jahres 2007 bekannt geben zu können, das derzeit an der zu 100 % in ihrem Besitz befindlichen Turnagain-Nickel-Liegenschaft durchgeführt wird, die 70 km östlich des Dease Lake, im Norden von British Columbia, Kanada liegt.

Eine dritte Bohranlage ist vor Ort eingetroffen, sie dient der Überprüfung neuer Explorationsziele, die als Ergebnis eines detaillierten Feldexplorationsprogramms aus den Jahren 2005 und 2006 identifiziert wurden. Die Bohranlage ist eine durch Helikopter transportierbare LF70-Anlage für Bohrungen von über 300 m.

Die drei Hauptexplorationsgebiete, in denen gebohrt wird, wurden von West nach Ost folgendermaßen benannt: Mandible, Zentral und die Felsabhanggebiete. Zu keinem dieser Gebiete führt derzeit eine Zufahrtsstraße oder Baggertrasse.

Das Mandible-Gebiet liegt 4,5 km nordwestlich von der Horsetrail-Liegenschaft, nahe des nordwestlichen Rands des ultrabasischen Turnagain-Komplexes. Etwa dreißig Zufalls- und Pickproben wurden an den Dunitausläufern über 1,5 km des Mineralisierungstrends mit einem Sulfid-Nickel-Gehalt von 0,048 % bis 0,262 % Nickel gesammelt. Kupfernickel (Pentlandit) wurde häufig als das am reichlichsten vorhandenes Sulfid identifiziert. Für erste Tests in diesem Gebiet sind drei Bohrlöcher von bis zu 300 m Tiefe geplant.

Das als Zentral bezeichnete Gebiet erstreckt sich über 1,5 km östlich von Mandible und umfasst eine Reihe von Bodenanomalien und Mineralisierungsschichten. In den analysierten Pickproben wurden bis zu 0,70 % Sulfid-Nickel und 0,76 g/t kombiniertes Platin und Palladium über einen Abschnitt von 1,0 m gefunden, und Zufallsproben von Feldsteinen ergaben bis zu 1,89 % Sulfid-Nickel und 3,16 g/t kombiniertes Platin und Palladium. Derzeit sind fünf Bohrlöcher für Proben unter mineralisierten Ausstrichen, Bodenanomalien und einer schwachen, aus der Luft erkennbaren elektromagnetischen Anomalie vorgeschlagen.

Das Felsabhanggebiet ist ein 2 km langes Segment aus ultrabasischem Gestein, das 1,5 bis 3 km nordöstlich der Horsetrail-Lagerstätte liegt und durch ein schmales, kein Nickel enthaltenes Phillitband vom ultrabasischen Turnagain-Hauptkomplex getrennt wird. In einem Bohrloch aus dem Jahr 1997, das unter einen der Gesteinsausbisse reicht, wurde ein Abschnitt von 20 m mit einem Gehalt von insgesamt 0,30 % Nickel, 0,61 g/t kombiniertes Platin und Palladium und 0,13 % Kupfer gefunden. Es wurde jedoch nie weiter untersucht.

Die anfänglichen Explorationsbohrungen dienen der Untersuchung mehrerer aus der Luft erkennbarer elektromagnetischer Konduktoren und der Einschätzung des Ausmaßes der beiden Gesteinsausbisse, die erwiesenermaßen eine Sulfidnetzstruktur enthalten und sich an den serpentinisierten Rändern des ultrabasischen Gesteins befinden. Ähnliche Konduktoren in der Horsetrail-Lagerstätte sind auf halbmassives Pyrrhotin, eine Pyrrhotin-Pentlandit-Netzstruktur und Grafitadern in einer umfangreichen Interkumulus-Sulfidmineralisierung zurückzuführen. Mehrere vorgeschlagene Bohrlöcher werden tief genug gebohrt werden, um die ultrabasische Basis für die Sulfidablagerung zu erkunden.

Zur Ausweitung des derzeitigen Bohrprogramms haben zwei Bohrer mit Gleitgestell im Gebiet der Horsetrail-Lagerstätte 14 Bohrlöcher für 5.000 m gebohrt. Bei den meisten dieser Bohrlöcher handelt es sich um Infill-Bohrungen zur Bestätigung des Ressourcenmodells und zum Nachweis angenommener Ressourcen, um die Ressourcenkategorien aufzuzeigen und zu messen. Die Proben werden von Acme Laboratory in Smithers, BC, und Vancouver, BC, analysiert, und die Ergebnisse werden veröffentlicht, sobald sie verfügbar sind. Alle Positionen der Ansatzpunkte der Bohrlöcher aus 2007 finden Sie auf der Hard Creek-Website unter www.hardcreek.com.

Eine der ersten beiden Bohranlagen hat jetzt mit einem 15 Bohrlöcher umfassenden Programm mit Infill- und Felderweiterungsbohrungen in der Nordwest-Lagerstätte begonnen, die 1,0 km nordwestlich der Horsetrail-Lagerstätte liegt. Die zweite der ersten beiden Bohranlagen bohrt Explorationsbohrlöcher in einem Gebiet mit bewachsener Deckschicht zwischen der Horsetrail-Lagerstätte und der Originalfundstelle. Anschließend wird sie verlegt, um die Ausdehnung der Mineralisierung des Duffy-Gebiets zu erkunden.

Zusätzlich zu dem Ressourcen- und Explorationsbohrprogramm werden fünf Bohrorte in den Horsetrail- und Nordwest-Gebieten zur Sammlung von ca. 1000 kg Bohrkernen mit einem Durchmesser von 6 cm vorbereitet, die für eine Vielzahl von Mahl-, Schleif- und Abriebprüfungen verwendet werden.

Hard Creek Nickel
(HNC-TSXV)

Hard Creek holds one of the largest undeveloped nickel deposits in the world. Located in northern British Columbia, the deposit has seen considerable exploration activity over the past 50 years.

Several factors have come together to suggest that the Turnagain deposit has potential to evolve into an important world-class nickel deposit. These factors include: the immense size of the deposit, advances in nickel metallurgy, the outlook for ongoing strength in the nickel market and improving infrastructure in the region.

The company has a strong management and advisory team that brings considerable experience in finance, geology and mining.

Hard Creek is now conducting an aggressive drill program intended to expand and upgrade the plus-billion tonne resource. Metallurgical testing and engineering studies now underway are designed to support an updated economic assessment due for completion this fall.

Exploration on the Turnagain ultramafic complex dates back to 1956. Since then, several companies explored the area and outlined several large areas with nickel, cobalt and platinum values. That previous exploration included 230 drill holes. Drilling by Hard Creek supplemented the earlier work and led to a preliminary resource estimate of 428 million tonnes of measured and indicated resource grading 0.17% nickel plus 0.011% cobalt. An additional inferred resource has 742 million tonnes of similar grades. Those figures suggest a total contained nickel endowment of 4.5 billion pounds. Since then, further drilling by Hard Creek has greatly expanded the resource.

The deposit is located about 60 km east of the town of Dease Lake, which is on Highway 37. There is presently road access to the deposit.

The 127 hole drill program (36,000 meters) now underway has several objectives: to move more of the inferred resource into the measured and indicated categories; to identify areas with higher grades; to expand outward from the known deposits; and to test other targets that could evolve into additional deposits. One of the target areas is a platinum-rich zone.

While the Turnagain deposit is enormous, the grade is less than other sulfide nickel deposits presently in production. The preliminary economic assessment completed a year ago demonstrated the viability of the deposit and estimated a net present value of C$595 million. Those figures are based on a long-term nickel price of $6.60. (Nickel currently sells for more than $20 a pound.)

Since that study, the resource has been greatly expanded, providing the scope for a larger scale operation. An updated assessment this fall will take into account the larger resource and other advances to the project.

The deposit would be mined as a large-scale open pit with a low stripping ratio. The nickel would be recovered by way of standard flotation to produce a nickel sulfide concentrate. The company is evaluating the option of processing the concentrate on site using a hydro-metallurgical approach or shipping it to an existing smelter.

Putting the Turnagain deposit into perspective, the size compares to the largest porphyry copper deposits. The contained metal value per tonne is well in excess of a typical porphyry copper deposit. The metallurgy of nickel is somewhat more complex than copper. However, all of the engineering and metallurgical parameters were considered in the preliminary economic assessment, which suggested the economic viability of the project.

Compared to NovaGold's Galore Creek deposit, which is now under development, Turnagain has a similar size, a substantially higher contained metal value per tonne, and a similar (or perhaps more accessible) location.

The current market value of the company is small in relation to the enormous potential value of the deposit. I expect the value to increase as the project gains greater investor acceptance and as the ongoing work programs continue to advance the deposit.

Hard Creek drills 292 metres of 0.28% nickel

(Vancouver) – Mark Jarvis, President of Hard Creek Nickel Corporation today released analytical results from 8 diamond drill holes (DDH), totaling 3,117 metres (10,227 feet) from the ongoing drill progr am at its 100% owned Turnagain Project, located 70 km east of Dease Lake in British Columbia

All of the reported core holes were drilled as infill holes in the Horsetrail deposit to confirm the continuity of the mineralization within the inferred mineral resource. Mineralization was encountered in all the holes and comprised disseminated to blebby intercumulus pyrrhotite and pentlandite, with local net-textured intervals, hosted by dunite and wehrlite of the Turnagain ultramafic complex. The total nickel values reported below include nickel in both sulfide and non-sulfide minerals. Comparison of analytical results over the past four years indicates that sulfide nickel values range from 60 to 90 percent of total nickel values. Only nickel sulfide minerals are expected to be recovered by froth flotation. Resource estimates will be updated after the 2007 drilling program is completed.


“Hole 07-181 was designed to pass 65 metres beneath the 235.9 metres grading 0.30 nickel reported in hole 05-106 (see News Release December 13, 2005). The mineralization in hole 05-106, which started 3 metres below surface, has now been extended to at least 230 metres below surface. This intercept, and the others reported here, have increased confidence in our interpretation of the geology and mineralization.” said Mr. Jarvis

DDH’s 06-175 to 06- 183 were drilled as infill holes within the Horsetrail deposit:

True widths are estimated to be approximately 80 percent of reported core intervals.

Samples for analysis were generally 4 metres in length of split NQ-size core. Reference pulps with known nickel and copper values were inserted every 25 core samples and rock blanks inserted every 30 samples to monitor laboratory performance as part of the QC/QA program.

Total nickel, copper, cobalt and sulphur values were determined by ICP emission spectrometry following four acid digestion of a representative pulp sample. All analytical work was conducted by Acme Analytical Laboratori es Ltd., an ISO 9001 registered facility, located in Vancouver. IPL, an ISO 9001 registered facility, also located in Vancouver, is carrying out check analyses on ten percent of the samples.

The Turnagain Nickel Project resource has been estimated in early 2007 (see February 12, 2007 News Release for details) at a measured and indicated resource estimated at 428.5 million tonnes grading 0.23% total nickel (0.17% sulfide nickel) and 0.011% cobalt and an additional inferred resource of 742.9 million tonnes grading 0.23% total nickel (0.17% sulfide nickel) and 0.011% cobalt. Sulfide nickel grades are based on ammonium citrate-hydrogen peroxide leach analyses. Ammonium citrate-hydrogen peroxide leach analyses for nickel provide a good estimate of nickel grades present in sulfide form and display good correlation with recover ies in metallurgical flotation tests. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Drilling continues with two drills doing infill and step-out holes in the Horsetrail, Norththwest and Duffy areas. A helicopter-supported drill is testing a number of exploration targets as detailed in the July 25, 2007 News Release. A fourth drill is being mobilized to the property and will be used in the Horsetrail and Northwest areas for drilling several deep holes targeted for greater than 700 metres (2,296 feet), and for the collection of approximately 1000kg (2205 lbs) of PQ-sized (2.5 inch diameter) drill core for a variety of crushing, grinding and abrasion testwork.

This news release has been reviewed and approved by Neil Froc, P.Eng., a qualified person consistent with NI 43-101.

IRW-Press/: Hard Creek erbohrt 292 m an 0,28 % Nickel

(Vancouver) – Mark Jarvis, Präsident von Hard Creek Nickel Corporation
gab heute die analytischen Ergebnisse von 8 Diamantbohrlöcher (DDH), mit
einer Gesamtlänge von 3.117 m (10.227 Fuß), des aktuellen Bohrprogramms
auf dem eigenen Turnagain Projekt (70 km östlich von Dease Lake in
British Columbia) bekannt.

Alle angegebenen Bohrlöcher waren Ausfachbohrungen auf dem Horsetrail
Depot, um die Kontinuität der Mineralisierung der vermuteten Ressource
zu bestätigen. In allen Löchern wurden Mineralisierungen gefunden, die
gemeinsam veröffentlicht wurden, um so ein Bild des intern angehäuften
Pyrrhotins (Magnetkies) und Pentlandits darzustellen, inklusive der
lokalen, strukturierten Intervalle. Diese Anhäufungen kommen in Dunit
und Wehrlit des ultramafischen Turnagain Komplexes vor. Der gesamte
Nickelwert (siehe unten) beinhaltet sowohl Nickel in sulfidhaltigen als
auch nicht sulfidhaltigen Mineralien. Der Vergleich von analytischen
Ergebnissen der letzten vier Jahre deutet darauf hin, dass der
Nickelsulfidwert zwischen 60 und 90 Prozent des gesamten Nickelwertes
ausmacht. Es wird erwartet, bei der Schaumflotation nur Mineralien aus
Nickelsulfid zu gewinnen. Sobald das 2007 Bohrprogramm abgeschlossen
ist, werden die Ressourceneinschätzungen aktualisiert.

„Loch 07-181 sollte 65 m neben dem 235,9 m Bohrloch 05-106 mit 0,30 %
Nickel (siehe Pressemeldung vom 13. Dezember 2005) verlaufen. Die
Mineralsierung in Loch 05-106, welche 3 m unterhalb der Oberfläche
begann, wurde nun auf wenigstens 230 m unter der Oberfläche erweitert.
Dieser, sowie andere hier angegebene Abschnitte, haben das Vertrauen in
unsere Interpretation der Geologie und Mineralisierung vergrößert.“
sagte Mark Jarvis.

Die Lage der Bohrlöcher kann auf der Karte unter
www.hardcreeknickel.com/plan.htm angesehen werden.

DDH 06-175 bis 06-183 waren Ausfachbohrungen auf dem Horsetrail Depot:

Die wahren Weiten entsprechen etwa 80 % des angegebenen Kernintervalls.

Die Proben für die Analyse waren in der Regel 4 m lang und in der Größe
eines geteilten NQ Kerns. Referenzpulps mit bekannten Nickel- und
Kupferwerten wurden alle 25 Kernproben dazugegeben und
Gesteinszuschnitte alle 30 Proben, um die Arbeit des Labors im Zuge des
QC/QA Programms zu beobachten.

Die Gesamtwerte von Nickel, Kupfer, Kobalt und Sulfur wurden über die
ICP Spektrometeremission, gefolgt von vier Nassveraschungen der
Pulpproben, bestimmt. Alle analytischen Arbeiten wurden von Acme
Analytical Laboratories Ltd., einem ISO 9001 zertifiziertem Unternehmen
aus Vancouver, durchgeführt. IPL, eine weitere ISO 9001 zertifizierte
Anlage aus Vancouver, führt Prüfanalysen an 10 % der Proben durch.

Die Ressource des Turnagain Nickel Projektes wurde Anfang 2007 (siehe
Pressemeldung vom 12. Februar 2007) bestimmt: Die gemessene und
angedeutete Ressourcen-einschätzungen ergaben 428,5 Mio. Tonnen an 0,23
% Nickel (davon 0,17 % Nickelsulfid), 0,011 % Kobalt, sowie eine
zusätzliche vermutete Ressource von 742,9 Mio. Tonnen an 0,23 % Nickel
(davon 0,17 % Nickelsulfid) und 0,011 Kobalt. Die Werte von
Nickelsulfiden basieren auf der
Ammoniumzitrat-Hydrogen-Peroxid-Laugenanalyse. Diese Art von Analyse,
bei Nickel angewendet, bietet eine gute Einschätzung des Nickelgehaltes,
der in Sulfidform vorkommt und stellt ein gutes Verhältnis im Vergleich
zu metallurgischen Flotationstest dar. Mineralienressourcen ohne
Mineralienreserven, zeigten keine Wirtschaftlichkeit.

Die Bohrungen gehen mit zwei Bohrern für Ausfachbohrungen und
Infill-Bohrungen auf den Horsetrail, Northwest und Duffy Gebieten
weiter. Eine hubschrauberunterstützte Bohrung testet eine Anzahl
derExplorationsziele, wie in der Pressemeldung vom 25. Juli 2007 genau
beschrieben wurde. Eine vierter Bohrer befindet sich auf dem Weg zur
Liegenschaft und wird auf den Horsetrail und Northwest Gebieten für die
Bohrung verschiedener tiefe Löcher mit mehr als 700 m (2.296 Fuß)
verwendet, sowie für die Sammlung von etwa 1000 kg (2.205 Pfund) der PQ
großen (2,5 Inch Durchmesser) Bohrkerne, sowie der Zertrümmerung,
Zermahlung und Abschürfung von Testmaterialien.

Diese Pressemeldung (englische Version) wurde von Neil Froc, P. Eng.,

Das dürfte so einigen Nickelwerten Auftrieb geben.....
Nickel - Der Wahnsinn!
Leser des Artikels: 645

Ende Mai 2007 kam der Nickelmarkt deutlich unter Druck. Die Höchstnotierungen von 50.000 Dollar pro Tonne waren schnell Geschichte. Die Abwärtsbewegung konnte erst im August bei 25.000 Dollar gestoppt werden. Auslöser für diesen Abverkauf war die Änderung der Regelungen zur Lagerhaltung und Verleihung an der London Metal Exchange (LME). Eine Änderung der bisherigen Verfahrensweisen war notwendig geworden, weil zu dieser Zeit eine starke Konzentration von Nickelvorräten an der LME in den Händen weniger Anbieter herrschte und der Markt gleichzeitig unzureichend mit Nickel versorgt wurde.


In den vergangenen Handelstagen wurde die pessimistische Stimmung aus dem Nickelmarkt gefegt. Allein heute konnte der Kurs um rund 18 Prozent zulegen. Was ist da los? China bringt den Optimismus zurück. Der weltweit größte Nickelverbraucher vermeldete einen Nachfrageanstieg um 35 Prozent in den ersten sieben Monaten des Jahres. Die Jinchuan Group Co., der führende Nickelproduzent Asiens hat den Preis im September bereits das zweite Mal angehoben. Damit hat sich der Kurs des Industriemetalls seit August um circa 40 Prozent erholt. Für den Rest des Jahres kann mit einer anhaltend hohen Nachfrage auf dem Nickelmarkt gerechnet werden, da China auch in diesem Jahr mit deutlich mehr 10 Prozent wachsen wird. Dies dürfte den Kurs weiter beflügeln.

Hard Creek drills 120 metres of 0.33% nickel

(Vancouver, B.C.) – Mark Jarvis, President of Hard Creek Nickel Corporation today released analytical results from 11 diamond drill holes, totaling 4,478 metres (14,692 feet) from the ongoing drill program at its 100% owned Turnagain Project, located 70 km east of Dease Lake in British Columbia.

Mineralization was encountered in all the holes and comprised disseminated to blebby intercumulus pyrrhotite and pentlandite, with local net-textured intervals, hosted by dunite and wehrlite of the Turnagain ultramafic complex. The total nickel values reported below include nickel in both sulfide and non-sulfide minerals. Comparison of analytical results over t he past four years indicates that sulfide nickel values range from 60 to 90 percent of total nickel values. Only nickel sulfide minerals are expected to be recovered by froth flotation.


Drill hole locations can be viewed on a plan map at www.hardcreeknickel.com/drill2007.htm.


Five of the reported core holes were drilled as infill holes, both between the Horsetrail and Northwest Zones and within these zones, to confirm the continuity of the mineralization within the inferred mineral resource. These holes are summarized below:

Hard Creek Nickel has decided to update the February 12, 2007 resource estimate prior to the completion of the 2007 drilling program by incorporating all 2007 drill results collected to date. The new resource estimate will be completed by AMEC Americas Limited of Vancouver, B.C. and utilized for updating the 2006 Preliminary Assessment. The completion of the updated Preliminary Assessment is scheduled for November 2007.


True widths are estimated to be approximately 80 percent of reported core intervals.


Samples for analysis were generally 4 metres in length of split NQ-size core. Reference pulps with known nickel and copper values were inserted every 25 core samples and rock blanks inserted every 30 samples to monitor laboratory performance as part of the QC/QA program.


Total nickel, copper, cobalt and sulphur values were determined by ICP emission spectrometry following four acid digestion of a representative pulp sample. All analytical work was conducted by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd., an ISO 9001 registered facility, located in Vancouver. IPL, an ISO 9001 registered facility, also located in Vancouver, is carrying out check analyses on ten percent of the samples.

The Turnagain Nickel Project resource has been estimated in early 2007 (see February 12, 2007 News Release for details) at a measured and indicated resource of 428.5 million tonnes grading 0.23% total nickel (0.17% sulfide nickel) and 0.011% cobalt and an additional inferred resource of 742.9 million tonnes grading 0.23% total nickel (0.17% sulfide nickel) and 0.011% cobalt. Sulfide nickel grades are based on ammonium citrate-hydrogen peroxide leach analyses. Ammonium citrate-hydrogen peroxide leach analyses for nickel provide a good estimate of nickel grades present in sulfide form and display good correlation with recoveries in metallurgical flotation tests. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

The current drill program is expected to continue, weather permitting, into early November. A helicopter-supported drill has completed exploration holes in the Mandible and Central areas with results pending. This drill is still on site and is presently testing a number of targets in the Cliff area, as detailed in the July 25, 2007 News Release. One Longyear 38 drill has completed three holes in the DB platinum- palladium target area, located two kilometers west of the Northwest Zone. An additional two or three holes are planned in the DB area before this drill moves back to the Northwest Zone to complete infill and step-out holes. Infill and step-out drilling is continuing in the Horsetrail Deposit with a third drill. The fourth drill has completed the first of four PQ-size holes in the Horsetrail Deposit. Core from these holes will be used for a variety of crushing, grinding and abrasion tests.

This news release has been reviewed and approved by Neil Froc, P.Eng., a qualified person cons istent with NI 43-101.

ECONOMIC CATALYST
New power transmission line could spur mining development
WENDY STUECK
October 2, 2007
VANCOUVER -- Betting on a resurgent mining sector, the provincial government gave a green light
yesterday to a new transmission line that will bring electricity to the northwest corner of the province and
could spur billions of dollars worth of mineral development in the region.
Industry groups that have spent several years lobbying the government to approve the project were
jubilant, saying the line would be an "economic catalyst" for northwestern B.C.
"Economic, reliable power is a huge factor for mine development," said Dan Jepsen, president of the
Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia, which said advanced mineral projects in the
region could account for more than $3.5-billion in investment and more than 2,000 jobs if the projects
are built.
Those projects include the Galore Creek and Red Chris copper-gold projects and Mount Klappan, a coal
project.
The $400-million Northwest Transmission Line is expected to run 335 kilometres from Terrace to Bob
Quinn Lake along Highway 37 and to be built as a public-private partnership, with Galore Creek
Partnership kicking in $158-million.
The Galore Creek Partnership is a 50-50 joint venture set up last year between NovaGold Resources Inc.
and Teck Cominco Corp. to build the $2.2-billion Galore Creek copper gold mine.
Construction of that mine is already under way and NovaGold had previously said the project did not
hinge on a new transmission line being built.
But other projects in the region do - Imperial Metals Corp.'s Red Chris project, for example.
In announcing the project yesterday, Premier Gordon Campbell and Energy Minister Richard Neufeld
said the new transmission line is in keeping with the province's goal of improving access to "clean,
green" electricity.
Currently, communities and industry in the region rely primarily on diesel generation.
The new transmission line would be owned by B.C. Hydro and operated by British Columbia
Transmission Corp. as part of B.C. Hydro's system.
BCTC will play the main role in planning the project, which depends on environmental assessments,
permits and consultations with native bands.
Stakeholder consultations have already begun, the province said yesterday, and future public and
stakeholder agreement will include meetings, open houses and information sessions.
The proposed 287-kilovolt line might raise concerns among area residents who have already waved red
flags over the pace and scope of development in the region.
Fortune Minerals Ltd.'s Mount Klappan coal project, for example, has run into opposition such as
roadblocks from the Tahltan native band, which has also spoken out against Shell Canada's plans to
explore for coal bed methane in the region.
NovaGold has struck a development agreement with the Tahltan for the Galore Creek project, which is
scheduled to be in production in 2012.
Should the 287-kilovolt Northwest Transmission Line not proceed for any reason, Galore Creek would
begin building a 138-kilovolt line to bring power to the mine, NovaGold said yesterday.

Electricity grid to be extended to B.C.'s northwest
Galore Creek to pay some of $400-million installation costs
Scott Simpson, Vancouver Sun
Published: Tuesday, October 02, 2007
British Columbia took a giant step on Monday toward the opening up of one of its last frontiers, with
Premier Gordon Campbell announcing a $400-million extension of B.C.'s electrical grid into the remote
northwest region.
The new transmission line will run through the northwest between a substation near Terrace and Bob
Quinn Lake, which is west of Spatsizi Wilderness Park, and elicited cheers from the province's mining
and mineral exploration industries.
Galore Creek Mining Corp. will contribute $158 million toward the cost of the 247-kilovolt, 335-
kilometre line -- which will provide conventional electricity to diesel-dependent remote communities,
support future mine development projects, and open up a new part of the province to the development of
independent power projects.
The contribution by Galore Creek is revenue-neutral to the company, which already has an
environmental assessment certificate to build a link to the grid in support of its $2-billion copper-gold
project in the Northwest.
Galore Creek president Doug Brown said the company will get its link, but the funds to build it will be
contributed to the greater public project.
Many potential mines and green-energy hydro projects, lacking Galore's financial resources, had
effectively been stranded due to a lack of connection to the B.C. electricity grid, and the mineral
exploration investment community has also been waiting for a signal from government before supporting
more intensive investigation of opportunities in the Northwest.
"The northwestern part of our province is incredibly large, incredibly rich in resources, and incredibly
beautiful. But it's remote," Campbell said in an announcement at the Asia Pacific Mining Forum staged
in Vancouver by the Mining Association of B.C.
"It's a part of British Columbia that too often in the past has been forgotten.
"One of the things we want to do is make every part of the province a part of our long-term future and
the prosperity we are hoping to build for all British Columbians."
Campbell lauded the efforts of the Tahltan First Nation and Galore Creek to forge a positive business
relationship that enabled the mine project to get underway and also create economic opportunities for the
first nation.
"Building relationships is an incredibly important part of the long term future of our province and Galore
Creek and the Tahltan have worked as very close partners in this project, and Galore Creek is an
important part of this announcement today."
Campbell said most British Columbians take for granted the province's energy resources, and compared
that to dependence in remote communities upon power from diesel-fueled generators.
Putting many of those communities on the provincial grid will help B.C. reach its goal of cutting
greenhouse gas emissions 33 per cent by 2020, he said.
"Reliable, accessible electricity is pivotal to the future of settlement, expansion and greater prosperity for
all of us. We want to open up this region for community and economic development and we want to do
that in an environmentally responsible manner."
"This doesn't just open up mineral opportunities in the northwest. It opens up substantial energy
opportunities in the Northwest, substantial business opportunities throughout the Northwest."
Campbell's announcement was one of two major events Monday at the forum, where Natural Resources
Minister Gary Lunn announced a $150 million, five-year federal project to streamline the application and
approval process for major resource projects.
Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources Minister Richard Neufeld, a long-term proponent in cabinet for
the transmission project, said it was "a great announcement for British Columbia and a great
announcement for the mining industry, the power producer industry, and any industry that wants to work
with first nations especially in that part of the province."
Dan Jepsen, president and CEO of the Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia, expects the
availability of electricity will boost mineral exploration in the region.
"It's the largest single [transmission] investment since the Bennett era. It's a huge help for us. The
northwest really does need power.
"It's certainly a huge advantage for us.
"There is a lot of activity up there already, so powering it up is going to be very, very positive for the
industry and for first nations communities, finally getting off diesel power. If you've ever spent time in
communities that only rely on that, it's a real challenge."
Michael McPhie, president of the Mining Association of B.C. said the lack of infrastructure has
restrained the industry from developing the Northwest and predicted that the transmission line will be an
economic benefit for first nations and for communities such as Terrace which are struggling in the face
of a declining forest industry.
"With the combination of Minister Lunn's announcement earlier today on streamlining regulations, and
the infrastructure to actually allow this to go ahead, it's a huge day for the B.C. mining industry," McPhie
said.

Preliminary Assessment for Turnagain Nickel Project
Shows Positive Economics with Potential 29 Year Mine Life

(VANCOUVER) - Hard Creek Nickel Corporation (TSX.V - HNC) today announced
that AMEC Americas Limited (AMEC) has completed a positive Preliminary
Assessment (the "Study") of the Company's 100% owned Turnagain Nickel
Project, located near Dease Lake in British Columbia, Canada. The Study
dated December 10, 2007 and entitled "Updated Preliminary Assessment of the
Turnagain Nickel Project", will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days and
available at the same time for viewing on the company's website
www.hardcreek.com.

The Study is based on a measured, indicated and inferred mineral resource
estimate completed by AMEC. This estimate incorporates a revised and
expanded geological interpretation of the Horsetrail zone and peripheral
area which includes 19 drill holes from the 2007 drilling program. Timing
of the Study did not allow the resource estimate to include an additional 32
infill and stepout holes for a total of 11,933 metres (39,150 feet) drilled
in 2007. Samples from these drill holes have been prepared and are in the
process of being analyzed.

The Study initially considered nickel recovery by both the production of a
saleable concentrate and a hydrometallurgical process. Completion of the
study was based on the hydrometallurgical process option given its better
economic viability. Results presented below are for the open pit mining and
hydrometallurgical process scenario.

Key parameters and results:
* Note: "% NiS" refers to nickel percent that is present in sulfides.

"Management is pleased with the results of the Study," said Mark Jarvis,
President of Hard Creek Nickel. "Given recent escalating mine capital cost
projections we are encouraged to find out that even with these increases the
preliminary assessment came out positive with a mine life of 29 years.
AMEC's assessment indicates that the deposit is potentially mineable and has
identified that further work is justified. Hard Creek will be undertaking
additional work in all major areas to advance the project to the
pre-feasibility level. Confirmation and availability of the required power
for the project has also been identified by AMEC as critical. Hard Creek is
aggressively pursuing all possible options for providing sufficient power to
make the project feasible."

Hard Creek is waiting for analytical results from most of the 32 infill and
stepout holes around the Turnagain deposit from the 2007 drilling program
which were not included in the mineral resource estimate stated in the
Study. These results are expected to increase the overall resource and
upgrade the confidence level of a portion of the current inferred mineral
resource. Analytical results from our drilling program will be released as
they become available. An updated mineral resource estimate will be
provided once all of the results have been received.

Recent drilling results obtained since the closing date of the Study have
already indicated the potential to include platinum and palladium as a
portion of our overall Turnagain deposit resource (see news release dated
November 28, 2007). These results were obtained within the limits of the
ultimate pit identified in the Study. As previously stated, the potential to
include platinum and palladium as a portion of our overall resource could be
significant. Close spaced drilling will be required during the next drill
season to determine the significance and extent of this mineralization.

Turnagain Nickel Project Overview
The Turnagain Nickel project, which is 100% wholly-owned by Hard Creek, is
located in British Columbia about 1350 km (835 miles) northwest of Vancouver
and 70 km (44 miles) east of Dease Lake. The property consists of 81
contiguous mineral claims covering an area of approximately 29,370 ha
(72,570 acres). Nickel and copper sulfides were first identified on the
property in about 1956 with Falconbridge Nickel Mines completing the first
exploration programs during the period from 1966 to 1973. Exploration to
date on the Turnagain property has included geological mapping, geophysical
and geochemical surveys and more than 75,620 metres (248,100 feet) of
diamond drilling in 304 drill holes. The total includes an additional 56
drill holes (32 infill and stepout holes from the Turnagain deposit and 24
exploration holes) which were completed since the closing date of the Study.

Mineral Resources
The updated mineral resource estimate for the Turnagain deposit was
performed by Dr. Guillermo Pareja of AMEC under the guidance of Mr. Greg
Kulla, P.Geo. of AMEC. A significant improvement between this estimate and
previous estimates is the use of geologic domains in the model. Previous
models, which used grade shells and did not have the benefit of a lithologic
model, showed conditional bias and local excessive smoothing.

The table below presents the estimate of the resource of the Turnagain
Nickel deposit using a 0.10% NiS cut-off, as at September 25, 2007, of 489
million tonnes of Measured and Indicated Resources at 0.163% NiS and an
additional 560 million tonnes of inferred Resources at 0.152% NiS. A total
of 42,128 metres (138,215 feet) of diamond drilling in 158 drill holes were
used in interpolating grade in the resource area.

The mineral resources of the Turnagain deposit were classified in accordance
with CIM Definition Standards and Best Practices referred to in NI 43-101
which have a reasonable expectation of economic extraction. The
mineralization of the Project satisfies criteria to be classified into
Measured, Indicated and Inferred mineral resource categories.

Mineral Resource Estimate Table
Cut-off Grade
at 0.10% NiS Tonnage (thousands) % NiS % total Ni % Co
Measured 59,464 0.184 0.250 0.011
Indicated 429,688 0.160 0.218 0.012
Measured + Indicated 489,152 0.163 0.222 0.012
Inferred 560,052 0.152 0.204 0.011

The sulfide nickel and cobalt grades are based on an analytical procedure
employed by Acme Laboratories that consists of a concentrated hydrogen
peroxide plus ammonium acetate leaching solution that is believed to be
selective at dissolving nickel and cobalt from sulfide mineral species while
leaving the nickel and cobalt in silicates undissolved. As a precautionary
step all the sulfide nickel grades were assigned a value of zero if the
corresponding sulphur assay was less than 0.2% S. Sulphur assays were based
on Leco furnace method except for results obtained in 2006 which were ICP
analysis. This precaution may cause an underestimation of the nickel
resource and could be large enough to be a material impact. However, this
approach limits the possibility that an overestimation of the nickel
resource has occurred.

Mining and Processing
The mining assessment for the Turnagain nickel deposit is based on typical
industry standards for a preliminary assessment study with regard to the
nature and mineability of the resource. The Study initially considered
nickel recovery by both the production of a saleable concentrate and a
hydrometallurgical process. Completion of the Study was based on the
hydrometallurgical process option given its' better economic viability.

The proposed mining operation is a conventional shovel and truck open pit
mine feeding a 50,000 tonne per day process plant using standard mineral
flotation technology. Throughput analysis was not performed as part of the
Study. Mining and processing of the deposit will be initiated in a "starter
pit" which has been scheduled to maximize the production of high-grade
material during the first five years, to shorten the capital payback period.
Lower grade material from the starter pit will be stockpiled and fed to the
mill in the later years of operation. The pit will expand in phased
pushbacks until the ultimate pit limits are reached. The table below shows
the contained tonnes and grade in the ultimate pit shell. About 67% of the
mineral resource contained in the ultimate pit is in the Measured or
Indicated category.

Ultimate Pit Tonnes and Grade Table
Cut-off Grade
at 0.10% NiS Tonnage (thousands) % NiS % total Ni % Co
Measured 56,611 0.187 0.252 0.012

Measured + Indicated 347,482 0.167 0.227 0.010
Inferred 169,941 0.145 0.199 0.010

Material for processing will be hauled to a primary crusher located near the
southwest rim of the Main Pit. The mine at the 50,000 tonne per day
throughput has a potential life of 29 years with approximately 516.6 million
tonnes at 0.160% NiS and 0.010% Co to the mill at an average stripping ratio
of 0.44:1. The construction schedule is estimated at 24 months.

Feed to the mill will be processed using a concentrator and
hydrometallurgical process facility on-site to produce separate nickel and
cobalt hydroxide products that will be trucked and shipped out of the
province through the Port of Stewart, for sale to ferronickel producers. In
addition, a separate copper concentrate will be produced which can be sold
to a copper smelter. Processing will be based on a conventional nickel
sulfide flotation flowsheet to produce a sulfide concentrate followed by a
hydrometallurgical process to convert nickel and cobalt from its sulfide
forms to a hydroxide form.

The overall metallurgical recoveries of metals have been estimated as
follows:

Overall Metallurgical Recoveries (%)
Metal Concentrator Hydromet Cumulative
Nickel 77.5 95 73.6
Cobalt 70 95 66.5
Copper 50 95 47.5

Metal in Saleable Product
Metal Average Annual Production Life of Mine Production
Nickel (in hydroxide) 20,397 tonnes (44.9 million lbs) 591,525 tonnes (1.304
billion lbs)
Cobalt (in hydroxide) 1,301 tonnes ( 2.8 million lbs) 37,734 tonnes
(0.083 billion lbs)
Copper (in sulfide) 2,281 tonnes ( 5.0 million lbs) 66,157 tonnes (0.145
billion lbs)

Saleable product would be paid for on the basis of 85% for nickel contained
in nickel hydroxide and 80% for cobalt hydroxide and copper in copper
sulfide.

Capital and Operating Costs
The initial capital cost of the project is estimated to be $CDN 1,381
million in 3rd Quarter, 2007 Canadian dollars. A contingency of $CDN 250
million has been included in this cost. The capital cost has been split in
the following manner:

Capital Cost Estimates
Type Area CDN $M
Direct Mining 116.3
Site Development 66.2
Main Process Facilities 390.9
Hydromet Plant & Reagent Services 106.0

Freight 38.5
Start-up & Commissioning Allowance 6.5
Total Indirects 338.4
Contingency (~25%) 249.9
TOTAL Capital Cost Estimate 1,380.6

Sustaining capital for the project over 29 years is $CDN 173.5 million. Of
this $CDN 8.3 million is spent in Year 4 and $80.5 million is spent in Year
8 to add and replace equipment in the pit. The remainder is attributed to
the capital requirements of the process and tailings facilities.

Recommendations
AMEC indicated in the Study that the deposit is potentially mineable and
that further work is justified. It was recommended that work in all major
areas be undertaken to advance the project to the pre-feasibility level to
better determine the economic viability of the project. This work includes
drilling to better define the resources and upgrade these into reserves.
More metallurgical work is necessary to ensure that saleable metal products
can be produced. More environmental and geotechnical work is necessary to
allow the project to move forward. The pre-feasibility study would examine
variants to derive the appropriate path to the development of this deposit.
Confirmation and availability of the required power from the North American
grid is critical to this project.

Qualified Persons
The Qualified persons responsible for the preparation of the Study on the
preliminary assessment are:
. Mr. Greg Kulla, P.Geo. Principal Geologist, AMEC Vancouver office
. Mr. Gerrit Vos, P.Eng. Principal Mining Engineer, AMEC Vancouver office
. Mr. Ignacy (Tony) Lipiec, P.Eng. Senior Process Engineer, AMEC Vancouver
office

This Preliminary Assessment includes the use of inferred mineral resources
that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic
considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as
mineral reserves. The study is preliminary in nature and there is no
assurance the mining, metal production, or cash flow scenarios outlined in
this report would ever be realized. Mineral resources are not mineral
reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

This press release uses the terms "measured" "indicated" and "inferred"
resources. We advise U.S. investors that while those terms are recognized
and required by Canadian regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission does not recognize them. U.S. investors are cautioned not to
assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories would
ever be converted to reserves.

This press release contains "forward looking statements". Such
forward-looking statements involve a number of known and unknown risks,
uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results,
performance or achievements of the company's plans to materially differ from

Hard Creek Nickel Intersects 20 Metres of 0.24% Ni and 0.60 g/t Pt + Pd in New Discovery Area
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 19, 2007) - Hard Creek Nickel Corp. (TSX VENTURE:HNC) is pleased to provide analytical results for an additional 8 diamond drill holes, totaling 1,888 metres (6,194 feet) from the recently completed 75 hole drilling program at its 100% owned Turnagain Project, located 70 km (43.5 miles) east of Dease Lake in British Columbia. Results for 35 of the drill holes have now been released with the analytical results for the remaining 40 holes to be reported when they are received.

Results are reported from exploration holes in the Mandible, Central and Cliff areas. Drill hole locations can be viewed on a plan map at www.hardcreeknickel.com/plan.htm.

"Drilling of the three exploration targets this year resulted in the discovery of a new combined PGE and nickel mineralized zone which is over two kilometres east of the main Horsetrail deposit," said Mark Jarvis, President of Hard Creek Nickel. "The Cliff Zone mineralization is very similar to the new PGE - nickel drill intersections recently reported on November 27, 2007 in the Horsetrail deposit."

"We have now identified two totally separate areas which host both nickel and platinum-palladium mineralization. The potential to include platinum and palladium as a portion of our overall resource in two separate areas could be very significant. Close spaced drilling will be required during the next drill season to determine the significance and extent of this mineralization."

Holes 07-236, 237 and 238 were drilled in the Cliff area, located approximately 2.5 kilometres (1.5 mile) east of the main Horsetrail zone. A 1997 hole, located 600 metres (1,969 feet) east of hole 07-237 and oriented to test the depth extension of net-textured sulfides located adjacent to the ultramafic-phyllite contact, intersected 50 metres (164 feet) of elevated platinum and palladium, including nine 2 metre (6.5 feet) long samples with greater than 500 ppb (0.50 grams/tonne) combined platinum and palladium. Pt/Pd ratios are consistently close to 1:1.

A number of electromagnetic conductors, located in the southern portion of the Cliff ultramafic body, remain untested as do several other sulfide bearing rock outcrops. To date, only seven drill holes have tested the 0.6 by 2 kilometre (0.4 x 1.2 mile) Cliff ultramafic body. Two holes drilled in this area in 2007 remain to be reported.

Both holes 07-230 and 231 were drilled in the Mandible area approximately 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) northwest of the main Horsetrail zone. These holes tested areas of dunite where surface sampling indicated the presence of finely disseminated pentlandite, containing 0.1 - 0.2% nickel in sulfides.

Holes 07-233, 234 and 235 were drilled in the Central area, located approximately 3 kilometres (1.9 mile) northwest of the main Horsetrail zone, to test mineralized wehrlite outcrops, the source of mineralized float and a weak airborne electromagnetic anomaly. However, drilling indicated the diorite-granodiorite intrusion and its peripheral dykes were more extensive than originally interpreted, significantly reducing the volume of favourable ultramafic rocks.

The total nickel values reported in the table below include nickel in both sulfide and non-sulfide minerals.

07-235 No significant results
Mandible 07-230 No significant results
07-231 No significant results



Given the limited amount of drilling in these exploration areas, the true widths are not known, however they have been estimated to be approximately 80 percent of reported core intervals. Samples for analysis were generally 4 metres in length of split NQ-size core. Reference pulps with known nickel, copper, platinum and palladium values were inserted every 25 core samples and rock blanks inserted every 30 samples to monitor laboratory performance as part of the QC/QA program.

Total nickel and cobalt values were determined by ICP emission spectrometry following four acid digestion of a representative pulp sample. Platinum and palladium values were determined by ICP emission spectrometry following lead-collection fire assay fusion of a 30 gram pulp. All analytical work was conducted by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd., an ISO 9001 registered facility, located in Vancouver. IPL, an ISO 9001 registered facility, also located in Vancouver, is carrying out check analyses on ten percent of the samples.

The Turnagain Nickel Project resource has been recently estimated (see December 10, 2007 News Release for details) with the measured and indicated resource estimated at 489 million tonnes grading 0.22% total nickel (0.16% nickel in sulfides) and 0.012% cobalt and an additional inferred resource of 560 million tonnes grading 0.20% total nickel (0.15% nickel in sulfides) and 0.011% cobalt. The sulfide nickel and cobalt grades are based on an analytical procedure employed by Acme Laboratories that consists of a concentrated hydrogen peroxide plus ammonium acetate leaching solution that is believed to be selective at dissolving nickel and cobalt from sulfide mineral species while leaving the nickel and cobalt in silicates undissolved. As a precautionary step all the sulfide nickel grades were assigned a value of zero if the corresponding sulphur assay was less than 0.2% S. Sulphur assays were based on Leco furnace method except for results obtained in 2006 which were ICP analysis. This precaution may cause an underestimation of the nickel resource and could be large enough to be a material impact. However, this approach limits the possibility that an overestimation of the nickel resource has occurred. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

HARD CREEK NICKEL CORP
Hard Creek Drilling Expands on Platinum & Palladium Discoveries
1/14/2008
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jan 14, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Hard Creek Nickel Corporation (TSX VENTURE: HNC) is pleased to provide analytical results for an additional nine diamond drill holes, totaling 2,686 metres (8,812 feet) from the 2007 drilling program at its 100% owned Turnagain Project, located 70 km (43.5 miles) east of Dease Lake in British Columbia. Results for 44 of the holes have now been released with the analytical results for the remaining 31 holes to be reported when they are received.

Drilling to date on the Turnagain Project has been successful in identifying four separate areas with platinum and palladium (PGM) mineralization; Cliff, Horsetrail, DB, and DJ. All reported results from 2007 drilling in these PGM areas are listed in the following two tables. The tables include results reported later within this news release.

DJ No additional drilling in 2007 (see Nov 17, 2004 news release
for results)

"Platinum and palladium are now becoming important in the development of our Turnagain Project as potentially payable precious metals," said Mark Jarvis, President of Hard Creek Nickel. "Results from the Cliff zone are the most encouraging since the platinum and palladium occurs within inter-cumulus sulphide mineralization with nickel grades that are very similar to the Horsetrail deposit but with much higher platinum and palladium values. Metallurgical test work is planned to determine recoveries of the platinoids."

New drill results are reported in this news release from exploration holes in the DB, Central and Cliff areas. The DB and Central areas are located approximately 3.5 km (2.2 miles) west-northwest from the Horsetrail deposit and the Cliff area is centered 2 km (1.2 miles) east of the Horsetrail. Drill hole locations can be viewed on a plan map at www.hardcreeknickel.com/plan.htm.

Cliff area hole 07-239 was drilled from the same site as previously reported 07-237 and hole 07-240 was drilled 500 metres (1,600 feet) to the west of 07-239 (see December 19, 2007 news release for previously reported Cliff area holes). Hole 07-239 intersected a 56 metre (183.7 feet) interval averaging 0.22 percent total nickel and 0.27 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium which included a 16 metre (52.5 feet) interval of 0.33 percent total nickel and 0.66 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium. Hole 07-240 intersected several mineralized intervals including 12 metres (39.4 feet) averaging 0.37 percent total nickel and 0.25 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium.

DB area holes 07-210 and 211 were drilled on the same northeast drill section as previously reported holes 05-88 (0.96 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium ppb across 49.3 metres) and 05-101 (0.64 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium across 71 metres) (see news releases of November 30, 2005 and January 20, 2006). Hole 07-210 intersected 12 metres (39.4 feet) averaging 0.54 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium. Hole 07-211 intersected 36 metres (118.1 feet) averaging 0.90 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium.

DB area hole 07-214 was drilled 80 metres (262 feet) north of 07-210 and 211. Hole 07-214 intersected 20 metres (66 feet) averaging 0.41 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium.

The platinum-palladium mineralization in the area of holes 07-210, 211 and 214 appears to have a shallow dip to the southwest and has been intersected by four holes over 150 metres (490 feet) in the down dip direction. Limits of this mineralization have not been defined. This part of the DB area lies near the southwest corner of a 1 by 2 kilometres (0.6 by 1.2 miles) combined platinum and palladium soil anomaly that has only been partially drill tested.

Holes 07-207 and 209 were also drilled in the DB area 0.4 km (0.2 miles) southeast of the previously mentioned BD holes, approximately 2.7 km (1.7 miles) northwest of the main Horsetrail zone. The holes were targeted on intense magnetic anomalies within an area of magnetite-clinopyroxenite near the interpreted upper contact of the ultramafic intrusion. Both holes intersected long intervals of magnetite-clinpyroxenite with hole 07-207 intersecting 28 metres (92 feet) averaging 0.57 grams/tonne combined platinum and palladium.

Holes 07-216 and 232 were drilled in the Central area on either side of the main diorite-granodiorite intrusion, approximately 3 km (1.9 miles) northwest of the Horsetrail deposit. No significant mineralization was encountered.

The total nickel values reported in the table below include nickel in both sulphide and non-sulphide minerals.

Given the limited amount of drilling in these exploration areas, the true widths have been estimated to be approximately 90 percent of reported core intervals in the DB area but are not known in the other areas. Samples for analysis were generally 4 metres in length of split NQ-size core. Reference pulps with known nickel, copper, platinum and palladium values were inserted every 25 core samples and rock blanks inserted every 30 samples to monitor laboratory performance as part of the QC/QA program.

Total nickel, copper and cobalt values were determined by ICP emission spectrometry following four acid digestion of a representative pulp sample. Platinum and palladium values were determined by ICP emission spectrometry following lead-collection fire assay fusion of a 30 gram pulp. All analytical work was conducted by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd., an ISO 9001 registered facility, located in Vancouver. IPL, an ISO 9001 registered facility, also located in Vancouver, is carrying out check analyses on ten percent of the samples.

The Turnagain Nickel Project resource in the Horsetrail-Northwest deposit has been recently estimated (see December 10, 2007 News Release for details) with the measured and indicated resource estimated at 489 million tonnes grading 0.22% total nickel (0.16% nickel in sulphides) and 0.012% cobalt and an additional inferred resource of 560 million tonnes grading 0.20% total nickel (0.15% nickel in sulphides) and 0.011% cobalt. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

This news release has been reviewed and approved by Neil Froc, P.Eng., a qualified person consistent with NI 43-101.

Hard Creek Increases Measured Resource by 45% at Turnagain

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Hard Creek Nickel Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HNC) is pleased to announce a new resource estimate for its wholly owned Turnagain Property, located 70 km east of Dease Lake, BC. This resource estimate is an update from a resource estimate provided in the January 2008 AMEC Americas Limited of Vancouver, B.C. report entitled "Preliminary Assessment of the Turnagain Nickel Project".

The updated mineral resource estimate for the Turnagain deposit was performed by Mr. Greg Kulla, P.Geo. of AMEC with assistance from Dr. Guillermo Pareja of AMEC. The table below presents the estimate of the resource of the Turnagain Nickel deposit using a 0.10% NiS cut-off, as of May 31, 2008, of 576 million tonnes of Measured and Indicated resources at 0.162% NiS and an additional 545 million tonnes of Inferred resources at 0.154% NiS. A total of 66,393 metres (217,825 feet) of diamond drilling in 257 drill holes were used in interpolating grade in the resource area. This total includes 16,533m of diamond drilling in 53 holes drilled in late 2007 which were not available for use in the 2007 resource estimate and results of a re-assay program on 4,317 samples completed in 2008.




Mineral Resource Estimate Table


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Cut-off Grade Tonnage
at 0.10% NiS (i) (thousands) % NiS % total Ni % Co
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Measured 86,461 0.179 0.240 0.011
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Indicated 490,091 0.159 0.215 0.010
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Measured + Indicated 576,552 0.162 0.219 0.010
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Inferred 545,051 0.154 0.204 0.011
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


(i)Note: "% NiS" refers to nickel percent that is present in sulphides.





The updated resource is a 45% increase in Measured resources and 14% increase in Indicated resources using all the new drill information from the 2007 exploration program.

The mineral resources of the Turnagain deposit were classified in accordance with CIM Definition Standards and Best Practices referred to in NI 43-101 which have a reasonable expectation of economic extraction. The mineralization satisfies criteria to be classified into Measured, Indicated and Inferred mineral resource categories.

The sulphide nickel and cobalt grades are based on an analytical procedure employed by Acme Analytical Laboratories that consists of a concentrated hydrogen peroxide plus ammonium acetate leaching solution that is believed to be selective at dissolving nickel and cobalt from sulphide mineral species while leaving the nickel and cobalt in silicates undissolved. As a precautionary step all the sulphide nickel grades were assigned a value of zero if the corresponding sulphur assay was less than 0.2% S. Sulphur assays were based on Leco furnace method except for results obtained in 2006 which were ICP analysis. This precaution may cause an underestimation of the nickel resource. However, this approach limits the possibility that an overestimation of the nickel resource has occurred.

A Preliminary Assessment completed by AMEC in 2007 assumed a 100m buffer along the river and a 45 degree pit wall slope, which resulted in a 17% reduction of Measured and Indicated resources from 489M tonnes to 348M tonnes of Measured and Indicated. The buffer also resulted in a 70% reduction of Inferred resources from 560M tonnes to 170M tonnes. The 2007 Preliminary Assessment identified a 29 year mine life based on mineral resource not impacted by the buffer zone. The actual buffer and final resource will be dependant on geotechnical and hydrological studies, as well as any permitting restrictions. The new resources stated in this news release have not been constrained by the 100m buffer and when considered will also likely result in a similar reduction in the resource statement.

Modeling consisted of the utilization of 25m x 25m x 15m blocks and grade interpolation by Ordinary Kriging within four separate zones; the Main (Horsetrail and Northwest), Hatzl, Duffy and River. The search strategy employed ellipsoids with long axes increasing from 80m to 200m to 400m. A minimum of three 15 metre downhole drill composites from at least two drill holes was required to interpolate a block grade. The block model was assigned mean bulk density values based on rock types from 746 density measurements.

This new resource estimate does not represent a material change with respect to the affairs of Hard Creek Nickel Corporation. It is anticipated that a Technical Report will be completed for filing in the first quarter of 2009 upon completion of the ongoing 2008 drilling program and metallurgical testwork.

QUALITY ASSURANCE AND CONTROL

Neil Froc P.Eng., Executive Vice President of Hard Creek Nickel Corporation and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for the implementation and supervision of the Turnagain QA/QC program. Prepared standards and blanks are inserted at the project site to monitor the quality control of the assay data (see report dated January 15, 2008 and titled "43-101 Technical Report on Preliminary Assessment" filed on SEDAR for details on geology, mineralization, data verification, sampling procedures, lab information, etc.).

Hard Creek Advances Development of the Turnagain Mill Flow Sheet
HARD CREEK NICKEL CORP HNC
6/23/2008 11:18:52 AM
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jun 23, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Hard Creek Nickel Corporation (TSX VENTURE: HNC) is pleased to announce advancement of the mill flow sheet design based on the metallurgical test results for its wholly owned Turnagain Property, located 70 km east of Dease Lake, BC. The metallurgical testing conducted by the Xstrata Process Support Group (XPS) in Sudbury, Ontario is a continuation of the program recommended by AMEC Americas Limited of Vancouver, BC in their report entitled "Preliminary Assessment of the Turnagain Nickel Project" (AMEC PA) provided in January 2008.

Under the direction of Hard Creek Nickel Corporation (HNC) and Hoffert Processing Solutions Inc. (HPS), XPS completed a detailed set of Quantitative Evaluation of Minerals by Scanning Electron Microscope (QEM-SEM) and Electron Probe Micro Analyzer (EPMA). The analysis was correlated to preliminary flotation tests on 16 variability composite samples obtained from the 2007 drill program.

The 16 variability composites are typical of the mineralization found at the Turnagain deposit. These composites represent the characteristic lithological domains, and include a range of sulphur and magnesia concentrations found within the pit boundaries defined by the AMEC PA report.

The XPS report "Hard Creek Nickel Corporation - Turnagain Project Ore Characterization", June 2008, identified the main nickel sulphide mineral as pentlandite occurring with a broad grain size population. Mineral association data indicates medium to coarse pentlandite is associated with pyrrhotite and magnetite. Fine pentlandite has a greater proportion of mineral associations with silicates such as serpentine and olivine. Preliminary flotation kinetic tests at XPS support a primary grind size between 75 and 80 A-A?1/2m. Future regrind work will be targeted to liberate the fine grained pentlandite in the flotation cleaner circuit.

HNC and HPS are continuing the development of the mill process flow sheet with grindability testing at SGS Lakefield in Ontario on PQ drill core collected in 2007. Flotation and optical mineralogy test work on the 16 variability composites at G&T Metallurgical Services in Kamloops, BC is due to be completed this year. Completion of this work is intended to define the reagent scheme and nickel flotation kinetics for future pilot plant testing.

The XPS results do not represent a material change with respect to the affairs of Hard Creek Nickel Corporation. It is anticipated that a Technical Report will be completed for filing in the first quarter of 2009 upon completion of the ongoing 2008 drilling program and metallurgical test work.

Hard Creek Nickel Drills 184 Metres of 0.32% Ni in Horizontal Hole

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2008) - Hard Creek Nickel Corporation (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HNC) is pleased to provide analytical results for the final 11 diamond drill holes, totaling 3,024.5 metres (9,923 feet) from the 2008 drilling program at its 100% owned Turnagain Project, located 70 km (43.5 miles) east of Dease Lake in British Columbia.

Drill hole locations can be viewed on a plan map at:
www.hardcreeknickel.com/images-news/2008_11_26_news_map.jpg

"Drill hole 08-264 proved to be a very valuable hole for us," said Mark Jarvis, President of Hard Creek Nickel. "The hole was drilled from an outcrop exposure at a near horizontal angle of -5 degrees to the north directly into our proposed starter pit area. Its purpose was to validate our deposit model and to identify an adequate location for a possible adit. The hole confirmed our geological model and confirmed that, when we decide to collect a bulk sample by driving an adit at that location, the bulk sample will be typical of the starter pit."

Nine of the reported core holes were drilled as in-fill holes, located within the main Horsetrail Deposit to increase the confidence level of the resource categorization in the vicinity of the proposed starter pit and two were drilled for geotechnical investigative purposes (Holes 08-262 and 263). Hole 08-262 was drilled exclusively in overburden for groundwater monitoring purposes.

These holes are summarized in the table listed below. The total nickel values reported in the table below include nickel in both sulphide and non-sulphide minerals.

True widths are estimated to be approximately 80 percent of reported core intervals except for hole 08-264 which has been drilled normal to the mineralization and is representative of the true width.

Samples for analysis were generally 4 metres in length of split NQ-size core (Geotech hole 08-263 was HQ-size core). Reference pulps with known nickel and copper values were inserted every 25 core samples and rock blanks inserted every 30 samples to monitor laboratory performance as part of the QC/QA program.

Total nickel and cobalt values were determined by ICP emission spectrometry following four acid digestion of a representative pulp sample. All analytical work was conducted by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd., an ISO 9001 registered facility, located in Vancouver. IPL, an ISO 9001 registered facility, also located in Vancouver, is carrying out check analyses on ten percent of the samples.

The Turnagain Nickel Project resource has been recently estimated (see June 16, 2008 News Release for details) with a measured and indicated resource of 576 million tonnes grading 0.219% total nickel (0.162% nickel in sulphides) and 0.010% cobalt and an additional inferred resource of 545 million tonnes grading 0.204% total nickel (0.154% nickel in sulphides) and 0.011% cobalt. The sulphide nickel and cobalt grades are based on an analytical procedure employed by Acme Laboratories that consists of a concentrated hydrogen peroxide plus ammonium citrate leaching solution that is believed to be selective at dissolving nickel and cobalt from sulphide mineral species while leaving the nickel and cobalt in silicates undissolved. As a precautionary step all the sulphide nickel grades were assigned a value of zero if the corresponding sulfur assay was less than 0.2% S. Sulfur assays were based on Leco furnace method except for results obtained in 2006 which were ICP analyses. This precaution may cause an underestimation of the nickel resource and could be large enough to be a material impact. However, this approach limits the possibility that an overestimation of the nickel resource has occurred. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

The mineral resources of the Turnagain deposit were classified in accordance with CIM Definition Standards and Best Practices referred to in NI 43-101 which have a reasonable expectation of economic extraction. The mineralization satisfies criteria to be classified into Measured, Indicated and Inferred mineral resource categories.
