  • First Atlantic Nickel Corp. to Utilize Cutting-Edge Survey Technology for Potential Strategic Bulk Tonnage Nickel Deposit

St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, June 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO) (FSE: 3U8A) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”), an award-winning, industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by First Atlantic Nickel Corp. to utilize its proprietary survey technologies and services to help explore for what could be the first awaruite and district scale nickel project in Atlantic Canada.

Working with management and experts at First Atlantic Nickel, Draganfly’s drone, sensors and personnel have been specifically tailored to help maximize the potential success of this important project. Awaruite, a highly magnetic nickel-iron alloy, will be the primary target of initial surveys utilizing Draganfly's advanced drone sensors, which will be instrumental in rapidly identifying the strongest zones of awaruite nickel mineralization within the extensive Atlantic Nickel Project.

“Draganfly Services utilizing our technologies and services are a key part of our long-term strategy,” said Cameron Chell, CEO of Draganfly. “Nothing” collects data better than a drone and Draganfly services whether in Mineral Exploration, Wildfire Management, or Landmine Detection is focused on collecting and creating unique proprietary data central to our and our client's overall data and AI strategy. Long-term data powered by AI is what will define the world's largest drone companies and Draganfly is committed to a path of being a leader in Data and AI thanks to our ability to collect and create data via our drone and software platforms.

"First Atlantic Nickel Corp is excited to collaborate with Draganfly, a renowned drone technology company, to accelerate the exploration of our flagship Atlantic Nickel Project. With a 30km nickel-bearing system in Atlantic Canada, this project has the potential to become a multi-deposit district-scale project that could play a crucial role in securing North America's critical mineral supply chains. The project hosts awaruite, a unique nickel-iron alloy mineral. Draganfly's advanced drones will provide high-resolution data, helping us pinpoint the most prospective awaruite zones. This data will be crucial for our 2024 summer exploration and drilling programs, maximizing our chances of making significant discoveries that contribute to the resilience of North American nickel supply," stated Adrian Smith, CEO of First Atlantic.

The project reflects an evolving landscape in drone technology, and the thought leadership of First Atlantic Nickel Corp where integrating various systems and payloads expands the capabilities and applications of UAVs providing more quickly developed data, lower cost data, and unique strategic insights.
