Niocan Provides Update on Developments in Employment Litigation Case

Montreal, Quebec, May 31, 2011: Niocan Inc. (“Niocan” or the “Company”) (TSX-NIO)
announces today that it has been informed of a decision of the Quebec Court of Appeal in
favour of the appellant, a former consultant of the Company, for damages against the Company
in the amount of $172,000 plus interest, an additional indemnity and costs, for the termination of
an employment contract. The decision of the Court of Appeal reverses a judgment previously
rendered by the Superior Court of Quebec rejecting the consultant’s claim with costs. As a
result of this decision, the total exposure to the Company is estimated to be approximately
$225,000. The Company is currently assessing its appeal options.
