Maybe.

I've just successfully cut a MiniSIM card to a NanoSIM card using the following template: www.airportal.de/How_to_cut_Mini_and_Micro_SIM_to_Nano_SIM.pdf - it still works flawlessly.

I don't see why it won't work. Last I heard, all the electronics fit well under the electrical contact area.

Not only does the actual chip fit under the contact area but it is actually significantly smaller as the following x-ray image shows:

Also the lower pair of contacts (contact C4 and C8) have no function and so are not present ony many SIM cards, while on those where they are present they have no connection to the chip (as shown above). So you can cut these two contacts and even the essential contacts as long as you don't destroy the conducting link to the chip.
