Nickel North Exploration Corp. (NNX.V) has begun drilling on the Hawk Ridge Project, northern Quebec. The $5 million exploration program will include approximately 7,000 meters of diamond drilling utilized in two phases.

The first phase, consisting of approximately 4,000 meters of drilling, will focus on exploring for high-grade, Raglan-style mineralization. The second phase will involve definition drilling of approximately 3,000 meters and focus on expanding upon the Company's preliminary resource estimates (completed in spring 2013) done on the two intermediate-grade, large tonnage targets of Hopes Advance Main and Gamma zone.

One of the main objectives for this year's exploration program is working towards a NI 43-101 resource calculation, Nickel North said.
