      Graham Properties
=======================================================================

Highlights

- FNI-3512 intersected 9.60 metres grading 3.38% Ni and 1.06% Cu
- FNI-3446 intersected 12.65 metres grading 3.17% Ni and 1.31% Cu

November 7, 2008 -- Toronto, Ontario -- First Nickel Inc. ("First
Nickel" or the "Company") (FNI-TSX) reports the results of diamond
drill programs for the third quarter of 2008 on Lockerby East, 17
Level, Lockerby East surface and West Graham projects. Assay results
received in the third quarter include both diamond drill holes
completed in the third quarter as well as drill holes completed in the
second quarter. Assay results are pending on 9 holes at the end of the
third quarter.

The Lockerby East Zone drill program was designed to upgrade the
Inferred Resource to an Indicated Resource category approximately 200
metres below the lowest mining level. Highlights of the completed drill
program include FNI-3512 intersecting 9.60 metres grading 3.38% Ni and
1.06% Cu; FNI-3446 intersecting 12.65 metres grading 3.17% Ni and 1.31%
Cu including an interval of 4.75 metres grading 6.06% Ni and 2.04% Cu
and FNI-3449 intersecting 5.30 metres grading 3.19% Ni and 1.14% Cu.
Significant assay analyses from the 2008 drill program have been
summarized in the accompanying table.

FNI-3451   159.00   163.45     4.45     3.79     0.47

All assay intervals reported are core length and do notrepresent true
widths (defined as being measured at right angles to the direction of
extension of the sulphide body). All other assay samples are pending
analysis.

The 17 Level drill program tested three separate mineralized horizons
that include a hanging wall, contact and footwall trends between the 17
and 23 levels. Geological modeling and resource estimation is in
progress and scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter. Highlights
of the drill program on the Lockerby 17 Level include FNI-1743
intersecting 14.60 metres grading 1.99% Ni and 1.43% Cu and FNI-1746
intersecting 12.15 metres grading 1.50% Ni and 0.71% Cu. Significant
assay analyses not previously reported have been summarized in the
accompanying table.


                            Drill

All assay intervals reported are core length and do not represent true
widths (defined as being measured at right angles to the direction of
extension of the sulphide body). All other assay samples are pending
analysis.

A widely spaced exploration drill program targeting the down-plunge
extension of the Conwest Deposit and the up-plunge extension of the
high grade Lockerby East Zone was initiated from surface in the third
quarter. Drilling has confirmed the presence of both contact and
hangwall hosted nickel-copper sulphide mineralization between 700 and
800 metres vertical depth. Highlights of the drill program include
FNI-4003 intersecting 10.40 metres of hangingwall-style mineralization
grading 1.33% Ni and 0.64% Cu and FNI-4002 intersecting 2.60 metres of
contact-style mineralization grading 1.82% Ni and 0.96% Cu. The surface
diamond drill program is ongoing and scheduled for completion in
December. Significant assay analyses from the 2008 drill program have
been summarized in the accompanying table.


                              Drill

All assay intervals reported are core length and do not represent true
widths (defined as being measured at right angles to the direction of
extension of the sulphide body). All other assay samples are pending
analysis.

No drilling was completed on the West Graham property in the third
quarter, however, assay analyses were received during this period.
During the quarter a composite sample has been submitted to SGS
Lakefield Research Limited for a preliminary metallurgical program that
consists of sample preparation and rougher kinetic tests that will
provide an estimate of the recovery characteristics of the Conwest
Deposit. Additionally, the Company has commissioned Scott Wilson Roscoe
Postle Associates to complete an independent NI 43-101 compliant
Resource Estimate on the Conwest Deposit that is scheduled for
completion in the fourth quarter. Significant assay analyses for the
Conwest Deposit from the third quarter of 2008 have been summarized in
the accompanying table.

FNI-2062    97.50   105.50    8.00    0.61     0.34

All assay intervals reported are core length and do not represent true
widths (defined as being measured at right angles to the direction of
extension of the sulphide body). All other assay samples are pending
analysis.
