NNKL Names Gary Artmont Vice President of Exploration

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- Nordic Nickel Ltd. (OTCBB: NNKL) is pleased to announce that Gary Artmont has been named as the company's Vice President of Exploration. Mr. Artmont's career has been spent in the industrial trenches of mineral exploration, especially base metals such as copper and nickel. With 33 years' experience in the mining business, operating in 17 countries, Mr. Artmont has evaluated opportunities for such world-class companies as Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold and Norilsk Mining.

In the late 1990s, as Indonesia-based chief geologist for Freeport-McMoRan, Mr. Artmont was responsible for the management and coordination of a large helicopter-supported regional reconnaissance program. Duties included coordinating 600 field staff, 55 geologists and 7 contracting groups, budget formulation and data evaluation. During his tenure, an excess of 120,000 meters of drilling was completed on 17 prospect areas, which resulted in the discovery of the 8,000,000 plus ounce Wabu gold deposit.

In the mid-2000s, Mr. Artmont evaluated acquisition opportunities in Eastern Europe, South America, Southeast Asia and Mongolia. His work focused on a wide range of commodities including copper, iron, coal and nickel. During his career, he has conducted over 150 site visits to producing mines located throughout the world. His technical proficiency and experience in employing modern geophysical methods and data interpretation, combined with his practical experience in developing exploration budgets and cost controls for both large and small projects, make him an ideal fit for Nordic Nickel.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Artmont stated, "I am very pleased to join the Nordic Nickel team. My immediate priority will focus on completing the evaluation of several known nickel projects identified by management. I also intend to seek additional acquisition or joint venture opportunities that meet our company's criteria of potentially hosting world-class nickel deposits. Having spent many years evaluating nickel deposits in a variety of countries, I am convinced the company's strategy of seeking such opportunities in the Nordic region, especially Finland, is a good one."
