Pure Nickel's Tower Property Under Option With Rockcliff Resources Inc. Continues to Hit High Grade Copper-Gold Mineralization

TORONTO: November 29, 2010.   Pure Nickel Inc. (TSX: NIC, OTCBB: PNCKF) today reported that its option partner in central Manitoba on the Tower Property, Rockcliff Resources Inc. (TSXV: RCR), has announced that the preliminary drilling has continued to intersect high grade copper-gold mineralization. The Tower Zone remains open in all directions and has been intersected by widely spaced (100-200m drill centers) drill holes over a strike length of 800m and to a vertical depth of almost 500m.

High grade results from holes 4 and 5 are highlighted below.

  • 7.0% copper, 2.0g/t gold, 1.3% zinc and 32.2g/t silver across 2.65m including
    • 11.5% copper, 2.7g/t gold, 2.0% zinc and 49.7 silver across 1.00m (hole 4);
  • 3.3% copper, 0.3g/t gold, 0.8% zinc and 17.6g/t silver across 7.45m including
    • 9.8% copper, 0.9g/t gold, 2.2% zinc and 51.5g/t silver across 2.4m (hole 5)

As reported by Rockcliff, the geophysical bore hole surveys have clearly identified a significant untested area of high conductance representing massive sulphides along strike and at depth to the existing high grade copper-gold drill intercepts.

Significant assay results and drill information from drill holes TP10-003 to TP10-005 are tabulated below. Please see press release dated November 10, 2010 outlining additional high grade copper-gold results from TP10-001 and 002.  The lengths reported below are drill intersected core lengths and do not represent true widths.
