Narra Nickel has constructed a seven kilometre road into the permitted mining area, and ore is being prepared for transport from the mine site to the stockpiling location for beneficiation and drying prior shipment.

A tightly spaced drilling program is progressing within the permitted mining area with the objective to further define and ultimately advance calculated resources to mineral compliant NI 43-101 status.
Narra Nickel has executed sales agreements for liquidation of nickel products with several major consumers including Posco of Korea, and HGMG of China. Initial test shipments are related to forward long-term sales agreements for expanded quantities of a wide range of nickel grades.
The price MBMI will receive for direct shipping nickel products is calculated as a percentage of the LME price. The percentage varies according to the nickel grade and is calculated on the contained nickel content of the ore, on a dry basis.
Palawan, Philippines has been exporting raw nickel materials to the Asian nickel and stainless steel market for approximately 30 years, and Narra Nickel's Alpha project is ideally located to supply this expanding marketplace.
MBMI and its Philippine partners jointly control a 100% interest in eight nickel laterite material projects in Palawan and Samar, Philippines covering an area greater than 22,000 hectares where the objective is to develop a series of major suppliers of high-grade nickel products to the primary nickel consumers in Asia.
