Vancouver, October 18, 2017 – FPX Nickel Corp. (FPX-TSX.V) (“FPX Nickel” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results of the first three of eight diamond drill holes completed during its recent stepout drill testing of the Baptiste deposit at the Company’s 100%-owned Decar nickel project (the “Project”) in central British Columbia. The drill holes highlighted in this release (see Figure 1 below) are the first holes drilled at Decar since 2012. The drill results support the potential for meaningful resource expansion of higher grade, near-surface nickel-iron alloy mineralization at the Baptiste deposit beyond the resource used in the National Instrument 43-101 2013 Preliminary Economic Assessment (“2013 PEA”) (see 2013 PEA filed under the Company’s SEDAR profile on August 21, 2013).

The previously announced program (see FPX Nickel’s August 10, 2017 news release) tested the southeast extension of the Baptiste deposit, where adjacent holes drilled during the most recent drilling campaign in 2012 returned the highest-grading drill intercepts on the property.
