International Nickel Ventures Corporation Reports 2006 Results

International Nickel Ventures Corporation Reports 2006 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- International Nickel Ventures Corporation ("INV" or "Company") (TSX: INV) reports its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2006 (See INV's audited 2006 financial statements and MD&A filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's web site at www.nickelventures.com).

INV is a Canadian mineral resource company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of nickel laterite and sulphide projects in Brazil.

The Company's mineral properties are in the preliminary to advanced stages of exploration and are not in production, therefore INV has no revenues and incurred a loss of $3,762,001 or $0.13 per share in 2006, compared to a loss of $1,300,828 or $0.28 per share in 2005. The 2006 loss includes $628,341 for general exploration expenses, a write off of mineral properties and deferred exploration of $1,630,787 and general and administrative expenses of $1,480,190. Cash flow from operating activities was a net outflow of $1,412,825 compared to a net outflow of $470,888 last year.

The cash balance at year end was $13.8 million, compared to $nil at year end 2005 which was pre-IPO. Working capital at the end of 2006 was $13.5 million, compared to a negative working capital of $1.8 million at December 31, 2005.

The Company's most advanced project is an option to acquire, with partner and operator, Teck Cominco Limited ("Teck") a 75% interest in two advanced stage nickel laterite deposits, the Santa Fe and Ipora, located in Goias State, Brazil. Goias State hosts a cluster of several nickel laterite deposits of which the Santa Fe and Ipora deposits are the premier properties in this mining camp.

The option to acquire the Santa Fe and Ipora properties is indirectly held by International Nickel Ventures Inc. ("INVI"). INV accounts for its 27% interest in INVI under the equity basis. During 2006, the INV-Teck Santa Fe and Ipora Joint Venture completed an exploration program budgeted at $13.7 million. This expanded program was completed in December 2006 and consisted of approximately 38,300 metres of reverse circulation and diamond drilling on both the Santa Fe and Ipora properties.

In addition, INV also owns an extensive portfolio of 100%-owned laterite and sulphide nickel properties in Para, Tocantins and Goias State.

2007 Outlook

In addition to the 2007 property option payments required under the Santa Fe/Ipora agreement, the joint venture has budgeted $14.8 million of exploration expenditures in 2007 (of which $8.5 million is committed to be spent by July 2007) with $4.0 million being INV's share for the year. Included in the work plan is approximately 18,000 metres of additional drilling on both the Santa Fe and Ipora properties to define higher grade areas and to expand the deposits, support additional metallurgical testing of the Santa Fe and Ipora material and provide more data for resource re-evaluation and more detailed engineering to complete the scoping study. The budget also provides a contingency amount for possible test mining at Santa Fe over one of the higher grade areas to test mineralization continuity, grade control procedures and selective mining methods

In addition, INV has budgeted $3.1 million for exploration of its other mineral properties and the identification and acquisition of additional nickel laterite and sulphide mineral properties.

General and administrative expense is budgeted to be approximately the same as in 2006.

INV has no debt and believes that it has sufficient funds on hand to conduct all of its currently planned business activities in 2007.
