Southern Arc Minerals Inc. ("Southern Arc” or the "Company) (TSX Venture: SA) is pleased to announce that the Company's shareholders have overwhelmingly voted in favour of a resolution ratifying Southern Arc's investment in Canada Nickel Corp.

The Transaction was approved by 96.74% of the votes cast by shareholders including votes cast by John G. Proust. Without including Mr. Proust's shares, the transaction was approved by 93.36% of the votes cast by shareholders at today's meeting.
