CaNickel Granted Revised Environment Act Licence

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2011) - CaNickel Mining Ltd. (TSX:CML) ("CaNickel" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has been granted by the Manitoba government a revised Environment Act Licence (the "Licence") to construct and operate a land based tailing management area (the "TMA") at its Bucko Lake Mine, Wabowden, Manitoba.

The TMA is an expansion of the existing Interim Tailing Storage Facility (the "ITSF") and has a footprint of approximately 68.5 hectares to store all tailing from Bucko Lake Mine for the remainder of its existing mine life. Environmental studies indicated that the TMA would have a net benefit in relation to environmental impact, eliminating the need for sub-aqueous deposition of the tailing into Bucko Lake. The Construction of the TMA will be carried in two phases and the phase I construction is underway and expected to be completed by end of 2011 or early 2012.

"The granting of this License is a significant achievement for the Company," said Dr. Dianmin Chen, CEO of CaNickel. "The tailing storage issue concerning the Company over the past several years would now be resolved, and we are able to secure the privilege to continue to advance our strategic plan and ramp up and expand the operation at Bucko Lake Mine and to develop the untapped resources in the Company's projects in the Thompson Nickel Belts. We thank the Manitoba government and local community for their continued support to the Company."


CaNickel Mining Limited, formerly "Crowflight Minerals Inc.", (TSX:CML) is a Canadian junior mining company that owns and operates the Bucko Lake Nickel Mine near Wabowden, Manitoba.
