    • 11. Nickel Prices Implications for  Pure Nickel:  Over the past 5 years the number of Nickel focused junior exploration  companies has reduced dramatically = less competition  Ultimately fewer projects that have had ongoing exploration activity  As Nickel prices increase, the value of active projects can be projected to  increase  For Pure Nickel this could mean improved access to capital and more  interest by large cap companies in our large projects 11
