8020 Admin posted a press release Giga Metals to Support Research into CO(2) Sequestration in GIGA METALS CORP

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 29, 2019) - Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA) announced today that Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) has agreed to be part of a consortium of government agencies and industry partners, including Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA), that have agreed to fund a research initiative investigating carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration in silicate mine residue, including ultramafic residue from mineral deposits such as Giga Metals' Turnagain nickel-cobalt deposit located in British Columbia. A total of $3.5 million has been committed to the project, including $2 million from NRCan with the balance from other government geoscience agencies and from industry.


"We are proud to support this research as an industry partner," said Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals. "More than a decade of research by project lead Dr. Greg Dipple has shown that silicate mineral residue, when exposed to the atmosphere, absorbs CO2 and converts it to carbonate minerals, and the CO2 would remain locked in the carbonates over geological time scales. There is a real possibility that the Turnagain project, if developed into a mine, could achieve our goal of being carbon neutral."


Government support for the research initiatives includes geoscience agencies across Canada, including NRCan, Geoscience B.C., the B.C. Geological Survey, and the Geological Survey of Canada. Industry support for the research is being provided by companies including Giga Metals, First Point Minerals and De Beers Group.


"The level of support we are seeing from both government and industry is very encouraging and is enabling the start of field pilot tests of our technology," said project lead Dr. Greg Dipple of the Bradshaw Research Initiative for Minerals and Mining at the University of British Columbia. "Giga Metals, in addition to financial support, will be providing residues from their metallurgical test program which is currently underway. We will be investigating the rate of CO2 uptake from these samples as well as co-benefits such as cementation which could stabilize residue impoundment and reduce dust in the residue."

8020 Admin posted a press release Anthony Milewski appointed to Board of Directors in GIGA METALS CORP

Management team and board enhancements continue as Company prepares to advance the Turnagain project in anticipation of nickel and cobalt demand from electrification of automobiles and renewable energy


Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 29, 2019) - Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA) announced today that Anthony Milewski, Chairman and CEO of Cobalt 27 Capital Corp., has been appointed to the Board of Giga Metals. Cobalt 27 owns a 2% NSR on nickel and cobalt in Giga's Turnagain Project in British Columbia.


"We are assembling a very strong team at Giga Metals," said Mr. Jarvis. "Anthony has created, in Cobalt 27, the premier battery metals streaming and royalty company. His knowledge of the institutional market and the strategic players in this space is without parallel. We are very excited to welcome him to the Board of Giga Metals."


"As battery chemistries continue to evolve, nickel is emerging as one of the most critical basic materials in the lithium ion battery," said Mr. Milewski. "The experience of the nickel industry around HPAL laterite projects has been costly, and the need to develop low CAPEX nickel sulfide deposits with proven technology is acute. Giga Metals has a very large sulphide nickel and cobalt project that we think has an excellent chance of getting developed and built this market cycle.


"The Turnagain Project is competitive with the other large class one greenfields nickel projects of the world in terms of world class jurisdiction, project economics, simplicity of processing, low CAPEX relative to HPAL and of the exceptional quality of concentrate that can be produced. It is also of great interest to note that research at the University of British Columbia, partially supported by Giga Metals, shows the real possibility that the Turnagain project could be carbon neutral due to CO2 sequestration in the residue produced during concentration. I envision the team building a carbon neutral and environmentally friendly mine in a world class mining jurisdiction."


(Note: comments relating to project economics and Capex are based on the Turnagain Project Preliminary Economic Assessment, prepared by AMC Mining Consultants and dated December 2, 2011. See note * at end of release.)


Mr. Milewski is the founder, CEO and Chairman of Cobalt 27. He has served as a member of the LME Cobalt Committee and has deep experience in the mining industry as a director, advisor, founder and investor. In 2016, one of the industry's leading publications, The Mining Journal, named him as a Future Mining Leader. Mr. Milewski was a member of the investment team at Pala Investments Limited. Prior to joining Pala Investments, he worked at Firebird Management LLC.


Mr. Milewski previously worked at Renaissance Capital and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in Moscow, where he focused on advisory and transactional work in metals & mining and oil & gas sectors. He has lived and worked in Africa and Russia, including a year as a Fulbright scholar, and has spent considerable time in Central Asia.


Mr. Milewski holds a B.A. in Russian history from Brigham Young University, an M.A. in Russian and Central Asian Studies from the University of Washington, and a J.D. from the University of Washington. He holds an LLM from the Russian Academy of Sciences.


Resignation of Director


Phillip Robinson has resigned from the Board of Giga Metals, effective immediately. Mr. Robinson is a member of the investment team at Pala Investments Limited and has served on the Board of Giga Metals since November 2017. The Company wishes to thank Mr. Robinson for his service.


Grant of Incentive Stock Options


The Company also announced that pursuant to its Stock Option Plan, approved by the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company will be granting 1,000,000 stock options to various Directors and consultants, exercisable at $0.20 per share, expiring April 29, 2024.


About Giga Metal's Turnagain Nickel-Cobalt Project


The Turnagain Project hosts the Horsetrail nickel-cobalt deposit, a significant undeveloped nickel-cobalt sulphide deposit, located in British Columbia, Canada.


Engineering and metallurgical studies are underway with an objective of advancing the project to the Pre-Feasibility level. Extensive past and current metallurgical work indicates that a clean concentrate grading 18% to 25% nickel is reliably achievable using a very simple "off-the-shelf" comminution and froth flotation process flow sheet.


The Turnagain project covers a large, relatively underexplored land package prospective for additional ultramafic-hosted nickel-cobalt discoveries. Turnagain is one of the few projects in a stable jurisdiction that can potentially deliver large quantities of nickel and cobalt to meet the growing needs of the electric vehicle and energy storage markets at a time when many research analysts are projecting there will be shortages in the cobalt and nickel required by battery manufacturers.

Technical information in this press release is based on a Preliminary Economic Assessment that includes the use of inferred resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. The noted assessment results are preliminary in nature and there is no assurance the mining scenarios outlined would ever be realized.


The engineering report referred to in this interview uses the terms "measured" "indicated" and "inferred" resources. We advise U.S. investors that while those terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories would ever be converted to reserves.

8020 Admin posted a press release Giga Metals Concludes 2018 Drill Program in GIGA METALS CORP

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 30, 2018) - Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA) ("Giga Metals" or "the Company") is pleased to provide the following 2018 exploration update for its Turnagain Nickel/Cobalt Project.


The company has recently finalized its 2018 field work program, having completed a total of 10,835 metres of core drilling in forty holes (hole numbers DDH18-267 to DDH18-306).


Giga Metals plans to release all analytical results before the end of the year. ALS Global in North Vancouver is the analytical provider.


"Most of the drilling was conducted to collect data in support of advancing the project to the Pre-Feasibility stage, and we believe we now have all the data we need." said Mr. Jarvis. "Engineering and metallurgical work is underway with a target of generating a Pre-Feasibility study by the third quarter of 2019."


The 2018 work program included:



  • Two exploration holes totaling 1,119.8 metres in the platinum-enriched Attic Zone.

  • Thirteen metallurgical infill holes totaling 3,073.0 metres within the Horsetrail and Northwest zones of the Turnagain deposit.

  • Twenty-three infill holes totaling 5,866.9 metres, sited between the Horsetrail and Northwest zones to increase sample densities to allow for a reclassification of those portions of the deposit currently categorized as "inferred resources" to "indicated resources".

  • Two exploration holes totaling 775.1 metres in the MAG Zone roughly 5.6 kilometres northwest of Horsetrail deposit.


Giga Metals is continuing to advance the project through ongoing:



  • Consultation with the Tahltan First Nation and Kaska Dena communities.

  • Environmental and archaeological studies, including the establishment of remote water and wildlife monitoring stations and, the re-establishment of surface and groundwater monitoring programs.

  • Metallurgical optimization and the Turnagain Mine project design engineering studies.

8020 Admin posted a press release Giga Metals to Support Research into CO(2) Sequestration in GIGA METALS CORP

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 29, 2019) - Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA) announced today that Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) has agreed to be part of a consortium of government agencies and industry partners, including Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA), that have agreed to fund a research initiative investigating carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration in silicate mine residue, including ultramafic residue from mineral deposits such as Giga Metals' Turnagain nickel-cobalt deposit located in British Columbia. A total of $3.5 million has been committed to the project, including $2 million from NRCan with the balance from other government geoscience agencies and from industry.


"We are proud to support this research as an industry partner," said Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals. "More than a decade of research by project lead Dr. Greg Dipple has shown that silicate mineral residue, when exposed to the atmosphere, absorbs CO2 and converts it to carbonate minerals, and the CO2 would remain locked in the carbonates over geological time scales. There is a real possibility that the Turnagain project, if developed into a mine, could achieve our goal of being carbon neutral."


Government support for the research initiatives includes geoscience agencies across Canada, including NRCan, Geoscience B.C., the B.C. Geological Survey, and the Geological Survey of Canada. Industry support for the research is being provided by companies including Giga Metals, First Point Minerals and De Beers Group.


"The level of support we are seeing from both government and industry is very encouraging and is enabling the start of field pilot tests of our technology," said project lead Dr. Greg Dipple of the Bradshaw Research Initiative for Minerals and Mining at the University of British Columbia. "Giga Metals, in addition to financial support, will be providing residues from their metallurgical test program which is currently underway. We will be investigating the rate of CO2 uptake from these samples as well as co-benefits such as cementation which could stabilize residue impoundment and reduce dust in the residue."

8020 Admin posted a press release Anthony Milewski appointed to Board of Directors in GIGA METALS CORP

Management team and board enhancements continue as Company prepares to advance the Turnagain project in anticipation of nickel and cobalt demand from electrification of automobiles and renewable energy


Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 29, 2019) - Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA) announced today that Anthony Milewski, Chairman and CEO of Cobalt 27 Capital Corp., has been appointed to the Board of Giga Metals. Cobalt 27 owns a 2% NSR on nickel and cobalt in Giga's Turnagain Project in British Columbia.


"We are assembling a very strong team at Giga Metals," said Mr. Jarvis. "Anthony has created, in Cobalt 27, the premier battery metals streaming and royalty company. His knowledge of the institutional market and the strategic players in this space is without parallel. We are very excited to welcome him to the Board of Giga Metals."


"As battery chemistries continue to evolve, nickel is emerging as one of the most critical basic materials in the lithium ion battery," said Mr. Milewski. "The experience of the nickel industry around HPAL laterite projects has been costly, and the need to develop low CAPEX nickel sulfide deposits with proven technology is acute. Giga Metals has a very large sulphide nickel and cobalt project that we think has an excellent chance of getting developed and built this market cycle.


"The Turnagain Project is competitive with the other large class one greenfields nickel projects of the world in terms of world class jurisdiction, project economics, simplicity of processing, low CAPEX relative to HPAL and of the exceptional quality of concentrate that can be produced. It is also of great interest to note that research at the University of British Columbia, partially supported by Giga Metals, shows the real possibility that the Turnagain project could be carbon neutral due to CO2 sequestration in the residue produced during concentration. I envision the team building a carbon neutral and environmentally friendly mine in a world class mining jurisdiction."


(Note: comments relating to project economics and Capex are based on the Turnagain Project Preliminary Economic Assessment, prepared by AMC Mining Consultants and dated December 2, 2011. See note * at end of release.)


Mr. Milewski is the founder, CEO and Chairman of Cobalt 27. He has served as a member of the LME Cobalt Committee and has deep experience in the mining industry as a director, advisor, founder and investor. In 2016, one of the industry's leading publications, The Mining Journal, named him as a Future Mining Leader. Mr. Milewski was a member of the investment team at Pala Investments Limited. Prior to joining Pala Investments, he worked at Firebird Management LLC.


Mr. Milewski previously worked at Renaissance Capital and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in Moscow, where he focused on advisory and transactional work in metals & mining and oil & gas sectors. He has lived and worked in Africa and Russia, including a year as a Fulbright scholar, and has spent considerable time in Central Asia.


Mr. Milewski holds a B.A. in Russian history from Brigham Young University, an M.A. in Russian and Central Asian Studies from the University of Washington, and a J.D. from the University of Washington. He holds an LLM from the Russian Academy of Sciences.


Resignation of Director


Phillip Robinson has resigned from the Board of Giga Metals, effective immediately. Mr. Robinson is a member of the investment team at Pala Investments Limited and has served on the Board of Giga Metals since November 2017. The Company wishes to thank Mr. Robinson for his service.


Grant of Incentive Stock Options


The Company also announced that pursuant to its Stock Option Plan, approved by the TSX Venture Exchange, the Company will be granting 1,000,000 stock options to various Directors and consultants, exercisable at $0.20 per share, expiring April 29, 2024.


About Giga Metal's Turnagain Nickel-Cobalt Project


The Turnagain Project hosts the Horsetrail nickel-cobalt deposit, a significant undeveloped nickel-cobalt sulphide deposit, located in British Columbia, Canada.


Engineering and metallurgical studies are underway with an objective of advancing the project to the Pre-Feasibility level. Extensive past and current metallurgical work indicates that a clean concentrate grading 18% to 25% nickel is reliably achievable using a very simple "off-the-shelf" comminution and froth flotation process flow sheet.


The Turnagain project covers a large, relatively underexplored land package prospective for additional ultramafic-hosted nickel-cobalt discoveries. Turnagain is one of the few projects in a stable jurisdiction that can potentially deliver large quantities of nickel and cobalt to meet the growing needs of the electric vehicle and energy storage markets at a time when many research analysts are projecting there will be shortages in the cobalt and nickel required by battery manufacturers.

Technical information in this press release is based on a Preliminary Economic Assessment that includes the use of inferred resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. The noted assessment results are preliminary in nature and there is no assurance the mining scenarios outlined would ever be realized.


The engineering report referred to in this interview uses the terms "measured" "indicated" and "inferred" resources. We advise U.S. investors that while those terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories would ever be converted to reserves.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 20, 2018) - Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA) announced today that Martin Vydra, a former executive with Sherritt International Corporation and current Head of Strategy at Cobalt 27 Capital Corp., has been appointed to the Board of Giga Metals.


"This is exciting news for our company," said Mr. Jarvis. "Martin has a unique and deep background both in the technical aspects of nickel and cobalt processing and in marketing intermediate and finished products to end users ranging from aerospace to lithium ion battery manufacturers. Martin will be active in helping us select the offtake partners we want to work with."


"Turnagain is a very interesting, very large project," said Mr. Vydra. "One of the project's strengths is the quality of concentrates that can be produced. I have already had initial discussions with potential offtake partners and their interest is evident when they review our concentrate specifications. I look forward to working with Mark and his management and technical team to advance development of the Turnagain project."


Martin Vydra is widely recognized as an expert in nickel and cobalt extraction, processing and refining including the development and application of advanced technologies to maximize the recovery of valuable metals such as nickel and cobalt from a variety of feeds. From 2012 to 2017, Martin held the position of Senior Vice-President of Metals at Sherritt International Corporation, where he successfully guided the division through one of the most challenging periods in the commodities cycle, while delivering production at near to bottom quartile costs.


Martin's technical accomplishments at Sherritt spanned four continents and over 20 operations including postings in Australia where he was integral in Murrin Murrin's refinery start up; Finland for the design of Harjavalta's nickel reduction circuit; and, in Chile where he oversaw the design, construction and commissioning of a major pressure oxidation operation. Martin also played a key role in the assessment of Sherritt's Cuba's operations at Moa Bay, which resulted in the formation of Sherritt's Moa Joint Venture. Additionally, from 2005 to 2007, Martin was responsible for engineering, maintenance and capital construction at Sherritt's nickel refinery and was considered one of Sherritt's top technical experts across global operations.


-2-


Most recently, Martin served as Sherritt's Senior Vice President, Commercial and Technologies, where he had oversight for the sales and marketing of nickel and cobalt, and marketing and commercialization of Sherritt's proprietary technologies. Martin was instrumental in gaining access to numerous markets culminating with large-scale commercial plants built in China (zinc processing and coinage), Australia (HPAL), and in South America (pressure oxidation of sulphide ores).


In addition to his technical expertise, from 2008 to 2011, Martin held the position of Managing Director, Commercial Contracts and Marketing, with global responsibility for metal marketing which included finished products from Sherritt's Ambatovy and Moa joint ventures. Over his career Martin has been responsible for the sales and marketing of cobalt, nickel, fine cobalt powders and chemicals, thermal spray powders and coinage with end users ranging from aerospace to lithium-ion battery manufacturers.


Martin is a current and founding member of the London Metals Exchange Cobalt Committee and served on the board of directors of the Cobalt Institute. Martin was also a member of the board of directors of the Nickel Institute from 2010 to 2018, where he served as chair from 2015 to 2017. Martin's ability to combine technical and commercial aspects of the nickel and cobalt industries places him within a distinct group of industry professionals who offer this skill set.

8020 Admin posted a press release Giga Metals Concludes 2018 Drill Program in GIGA METALS CORP

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - October 30, 2018) - Mark Jarvis, CEO of Giga Metals Corp. (TSXV: GIGA) ("Giga Metals" or "the Company") is pleased to provide the following 2018 exploration update for its Turnagain Nickel/Cobalt Project.


The company has recently finalized its 2018 field work program, having completed a total of 10,835 metres of core drilling in forty holes (hole numbers DDH18-267 to DDH18-306).


Giga Metals plans to release all analytical results before the end of the year. ALS Global in North Vancouver is the analytical provider.


"Most of the drilling was conducted to collect data in support of advancing the project to the Pre-Feasibility stage, and we believe we now have all the data we need." said Mr. Jarvis. "Engineering and metallurgical work is underway with a target of generating a Pre-Feasibility study by the third quarter of 2019."


The 2018 work program included:



  • Two exploration holes totaling 1,119.8 metres in the platinum-enriched Attic Zone.

  • Thirteen metallurgical infill holes totaling 3,073.0 metres within the Horsetrail and Northwest zones of the Turnagain deposit.

  • Twenty-three infill holes totaling 5,866.9 metres, sited between the Horsetrail and Northwest zones to increase sample densities to allow for a reclassification of those portions of the deposit currently categorized as "inferred resources" to "indicated resources".

  • Two exploration holes totaling 775.1 metres in the MAG Zone roughly 5.6 kilometres northwest of Horsetrail deposit.


Giga Metals is continuing to advance the project through ongoing:



  • Consultation with the Tahltan First Nation and Kaska Dena communities.

  • Environmental and archaeological studies, including the establishment of remote water and wildlife monitoring stations and, the re-establishment of surface and groundwater monitoring programs.

  • Metallurgical optimization and the Turnagain Mine project design engineering studies.


About Giga's Turnagain Nickel-Cobalt Project


The Turnagain Project hosts the Horsetrail nickel-cobalt deposit, among the world's largest undeveloped nickel-cobalt sulphide deposits, located in British Columbia, Canada.


Engineering and metallurgical studies are underway with an objective of producing a Pre-Feasibility study by the third quarter of 2019. Extensive metallurgical work indicates a clean concentrate grading 18% nickel and 1% cobalt is reliably achievable using simple "off-the-shelf" processing technology.


The Turnagain project covers a large, relatively underexplored land package prospective for additional ultramafic-hosted nickel-cobalt discoveries. Turnagain is one of the few projects in a stable jurisdiction that can potentially deliver large quantities of cobalt and nickel to meet the growing needs of the electric vehicle and energy storage markets at a time when many research analysts are projecting there will be shortages in the cobalt and nickel required by battery manufacturers.


On behalf of the Board of Directors,


"Mark Jarvis"

MARK JARVIS, PRESIDENT & CEO
