Pure Nickel Response to Litigation filed by Bankrupt Western Utah Copper Company.
TORONTO: September 1, 2010. Pure Nickel Inc. (TSX: NIC, OTCBB: PNCKF) today announces that on
Friday August 27, 2010, Western Utah Copper Company (“WUCC”) filed an action in bankruptcy court in
Utah, U.S., against Nevada Star Resource Corp and Pure Nickel. This action is essentially identical to an
amendment to WUCC’s counterclaims that WUCC previously proposed to make to the existing counterclaims
that it previously filed in response to our June 2009 action. In the past we have commented in our annual and
quarterly statements, specifically our Management Discussion and Analysis, that we believe WUCC’s existing
counterclaims in that action are without merit. We continue to believe the counterclaims and the August 27 action
are without merit. We do not anticipate the need to make provision for this matter.
