  5. 5. Reed Copper Project VMS-HudBay Reed Project Mine  VMS owns 30% of the project and is financed to production  Borehole Pulse Electromagnetic targets indicate the deposit remains open at depth.  First production of 7000 tonnes completed in September  4500 tonnes of ore milled during the month of September  Full production to begin 2014  Cash flow expected in 2015 Open Down Plunge www.vmsventures.com 5
  6. 6. Reed Copper Mine: Cash Flow Expected In 2015  The high grade nature of the Reed Copper deposit gives the project strong leverage to copper prices.  The following table shows a copper price sensitivity analysis based on the operating parameters set out in the Prefeasibility Study Published in May 2012: PFS VMS Ventures VMS Ventures Inc.

  7. 7. Assets and Opportunities Why Own VMS The Reed Copper Mine  Cash flow expected to commence 2015  Underground drill stations will explore for additional ore bodies and further define the size of the deposit.  Full production 2014. $6M and cash flow coming = New Opportunities  We are actively seeking an advanced stage project and are continuously reviewing prospective projects. The current business climate is favorable for high value acquisitions as companies struggle to raise money and finance projects. North American Nickel (VMS owns 23.9% of NAN Shares)  The world’s next nickel sulphide camp? NAN is exploring a camp scale property near Maniitsoq, on the S.W coast of Greenland. www.vmsventures.com 7
  8. 8. North American Nickel: Overview  Acquired the (Sudbury Basin sized) Maniitsoq property in Greenland in August, 2011; 100% owned.  High grade nickel sulphide mineralization (locally over 7% nickel at Imiak Hill) intersected in 2013 drilling  Over 100 conductive target zones identified through Helicopter EM (VTEM) geophysical surveys  Extensive prospective belt (15km x 75km) hosting mineralized intrusions within a large meteor impact structure  $8M invested to date; Cash position today $6.2M  VMS Ventures holds 23.9% of NAN shares CAPITAL STRUCTURE (as at January, 2014) (the Sentient Group manages over $2.7B in quality Issued & Outstanding: Warrants: ($0.21 - $1.00) metal, mineral and energy assets across the globe.) Options: Fully Diluted: 52 Week High/Low YTD Performance Current Price  Sentient Group holds 39.04% of NAN shares. www.northamericannickel.com 140,576,584 25,431,144 7,887,500 173,895,228 $0.47/$0.12 87.5% $0.30 8
  9. 9. Nickel Supply/Demand: In Our Favor  The Nickel market is likely to face large deficits in 2nd half of this decade – only a doubling of NPI output could balance it (difficult given Indonesian ore constraints combined with Chinese cost pressures) Nickel prices, as in 2005‐2007, will likely have to rise to force demand in line with available supply.  China is going to need 1+ MILLION tonnes more nickel annually during this decade and ROW will also need more.  Supply response will be structurally insufficient as current projects under construction only provide half this requirement (at best, as many are struggling) and “project cupboard” is largely empty ‐ underpinned by 35+ years of underdevelopment.  Limited interest in new HPAL projects, no new high grade (>2%) FeNi projects in 30 years.  Few sulphide projects discovered/developed.

  16. 16. Maniitsoq Ni-Cu-Co-PGM Project South West Greenland Historical Work  Kryolitselskabet Øresund, 1962 to 1973: extensive mapping, prospecting defining the trend and shallow diamond drilling (average hole length <55 m), no subsurface geophysical modelling to orientate drilling but some success: Imiak Hill: 9.85 m @ 2.67% Ni and 0.60% Cu  Cominco & Falconbridge, 1993 to 2000: Cominco flies extensive fixed wing time domain EM unsuited to undulating terrain and hampered by flight path  Falconbridge completed surface magnetic and EM surveys, plus extensive high quality re-analysis of historical core that confirmed historical high-grade assays and establish Maniitsoq nickel tenor.  Neither Cominco nor Falconbridge did any drilling. www.northamericannickel.com 16

Maniitsoq Ni-Cu-Co-PGM Project South West Greenland 2012 QEMSCAN Mineralogical Study To identify and quantify nickel and copper-bearing minerals in three high-grade samples from Imiak Hill and Spotty Hill and to determine the liberation and association characteristics of nickel and copper sulphides in the samples. The study was performed by SGS Canada Inc. HIGHLIGHTS: Nickel  All three samples show high potential nickel recovery. Mineralogically limiting grade-recovery curves indicate maximum potential nickel grades of 35% at recoveries of 84 to 87%.  Pentlandite is the main nickel-bearing mineral and contains 95.5 to 96.3% of all the nickel in the samples. Silicate hosted nickel comprises less than 1% of all the nickel.  Pentlandite P80 grain sizes range from 53 to 65 μm.  Total potentially floatable pentlandite ranges from 96.3 to 97.6%.

Maniitsoq Ni-Cu-Co-PGM Project South West Greenland Potential Sulphide Accumulation Sites Deposit Model  Mantle melting in response to a giant impact.  Hot ultramafic magma flows to surface through a “conduit system” comprised of restricted conduits and larger magma chambers.  Hot magma assimilates country rock (locally sulphidic) resulting in sulphur saturation and production of a sulphide liquid.  Ni+Cu+Co±PGE sulphide collects in zones of lower velocity within the conduit system.  Continual magma flow upgrades the nickel tenor of sulphide already deposited.  Magmatism eventually ceases and conduit system is preserved as noritic rock.  in a Magma Conduit Over time, uplift and erosion expose parts of the magma conduit system and some of the Ni+Cu+Co±PGE sulphides. www.northamericannickel.com J.

  32. 32. Size of the Prize: Some Context “To date, core analysis (2012 assay data) suggests an admixture of 100 percent iron sulphide (pyrrhotite - pyrite) - nickel sulphide (pentlandite) could carry 6 to 8% nickel - this is a guessing game, but 2012 data provides some substance to this qualitative view:” In Situ Metal Value: What is Nickel Worth in the Ground? 10Mt Deposit at 2% Ni (7lb) = $2.8B 15Mt Deposit at 1.2% Ni (7lb) = $2.5B 32
  33. 33. Maniitsoq Ni-Cu-Co-PGM Project South West Greenland Summary      NAN’s holds 100% exclusive rights to explore the Greenland norite Belt and significant nickel occurrences in the area. Three intrusions comprising the Imiak Hill Conduit Complex (IHCC) all with significant sulphide mineralization and open at depth. The 3 conduits may converge into a single larger source deposit at depth! Additional mineralization and target zones within 10 km of IHCC. Very large, underexplored, new area with potential to host multiple deposits. Sulphide nickel deposits are the high value source for the worlds nickel and are in decline as a source. What’s Next  Spring 2014 commence deep penetrating ground geophysical surveys to develop deeper targets at the Imiak Hill Conduit Complex.  Begin focused drilling to expand and define mineralized zones.   Test down plunge of near solid to solid sulphide and disseminated mineralization at Imiak North, Spotty Hill, Imiak North and Fossilik zones Drill test priority regional target zones across the belt along with additional helicopter geophysical surveys to explore targets throughout the project area. www.northamericannickel.com 33

  36. 36. Why Buy NAN?: World’s Next Nickel Camp Investor Risk Mitigation: These “boxes” are already ticked    Greenland is a secure political jurisdiction supported by pro-mining government; Significant historic exploration data and drill core analyzed and interpreted by NAN Maniitsoq’s geology is exemplary for district scale nickel potential:           Abundance of Ni-Cu sulphide occurrences at surface & in drilling; High Nickel tenor – consistent across 7KM belt Major, long lived structures; and Large-scale mafic igneous event associated with meteorite impact QEMSCAN testing suggests good recoveries expected Modern helicopter “terrain hugging” surveys optimal for Maniitsoq’s topography and mineralization immediate success >100 EM anomalies Access to ice free tide water, 12 month of the year: Moderate climate Low cost power potential, (hydro electricity generation) and near by access to deep water shipping Management has a discovery track record; NAN has a strategic investor: The Sentient Group; owns 39.04% (VMS Owns 23.9%) 36
