Nearctic Nickel Mines Inc. - Litigation Update

    Issued and Outstanding
    29,211,290 Common Shares

    TORONTO, June 2 /CNW/ - Nearctic Nickel Mines Inc. (Pink Sheets:   NNMIF)
(the "Company") advises that Canadian Royalties Inc. "CRI" has filed a motion
to homologate the Sheppard Decision of April 1, 2009 with the Superior Court
of Quebec. The Company intends to contest that motion. The Company has
responded by filing its own motion that the Sheppard Decision be annulled.
Each of these motions will be appended to the Material Change Report filed
following upon this Press Release.
    As the Sheppard Decision has not been validated through homologation, the
Ministry of National Resources did not and apparently will not act on CRI's
request for the immediate transfer of a 10% interest in the Expo Ungava
    As the 10% interest which is the subject of the Sheppard Decision has not
been transferred, the Company, through a subsidiary owns a 30% interest in the
Expo Ungava Property and CRI a 70% interest. The parties remain in the option
phase under the Agreement of January 12, 2001 and the joint venture phase has
not begun. The Company expects that this will remain the case until the
motions for homologation and annulment are finally adjudicated.
