The Baptiste Deposit at FPX Nickel’s Decar Project is one of the world’s best development-stage nickel projects

Lower Projected Costs

  • Potential for lowest quartile operating costs (US$3.13/lb Ni)
  • Low capital intensity compared to recent global nickel mines

Large Resource, Long Life

  • Projected to be among the world’s 10 largest nickel mines by annual output
  • 24-year mine life with significant expansion potential

Excellent Location

  • Located 80 km west of Mt. Milligan mine (first production 2013) in BC
  • Supportive local relationships
  • Close proximity to power and rail

High-Value, Strategic Nickel Product

  • High-grade nickel product (63-65% Ni) with low impurities
  • Suited for direct feed to stainless steel or for EV battery market

Modest Enviro Footprint

  • Non acid-generating host rock
  • No toxic heavy-metal leaching
  • Benign tailings with significant potential for CO2 capture

Conventional Mining & Processing

  • Bulk-tonnage, open-pit mining with low strip ratio (0.17:1 life-of-mine)
  • Magnetic separation followed by flotation recovery
  • Production of high-grade Ni product and by-product iron concentrate

A Potential Carbon Neutral Mine

According to Dr. Ian Power (Professor, Trent University), “Decar offers a tremendous opportunity for developing a carbon-neutral mine”.

  • Decar mine waste (brucite) naturally sequesters CO2
  • Generates a possible carbon benefit under the B.C. carbon tax
  • Binding and cementation of tailings has numerous co-benefits that could influence mine design, operations, and closure
