Karim Rayani, CEO of Falcon, noted, “Falcon is continuing its pursuit to diversify and go after critical element projects, with large tonnage potential. The Hope Advance is an area I have been keen on for some time for its high-grade nickel and battery elements. Further infrastructure is being planned with a conceptual deep seaport to the area which would bring excitement and large investment into the camp. The recent option agreement by Nickel North confirms our belief that Nickel, and associated PGE’s will remain a valuable commodity in the coming years.  As we enter a new greening phase, onshoring and reshoring of manufacturing will mean North American metal assets will become more valuable than ever, and we love operating in the mining and exploration friendly province of Quebec.”
