Noble Mineral Exploration Inc.'s ("NOB") projects include:
Project 81 – Timmins-Cochrane Properties
An exploration and development property wherein the Company holds mineral rights, in excess of 36,400 hectares, in the Timmins-Cochrane area of Northern Ontario, included in which Noble has acquired a 50% interest in 7 patents and 310 tenure identified mining claims totalling ~6,600ha in Carnegie, Kidd, Wark and Prosser Townships and an option on 4,800ha in Calder Twp.
Project 81 is a land package of patented, optioned and staked mineral claims. The property hosts a number of zones that have historical exploration identifying nickel-cobalt-PGMs, VMS and gold mineralization from work carried out in the 1960's and 1970's (these sample results are historical and non-NI 43-101 compliant) as well as assay results from drilling conducted by the Company in 2012, 2018 and 2020. Project 81 hosts diversified drill-ready gold, nickel-cobalt and base metal exploration targets at various stages of exploration.
Township Properties – Mann, Hanna, Duff and Reaume Townships
Noble has options to acquire 307 mining claims (the “Claims”) in Mann, Hanna, Duff, and Reaume Townships, covering an area totaling approximately 6,539 hectares. The Company has also staked an additional 256 mining claims in Mann, Hanna, Duff and Reaume Townships totaling approximately 5,453 hectares. This property has been optioned to Canada Nickel Company for cash shares and work to earn an 80% interest.
Nagagami River Property – Hearst Area, Northern Ontario
677 claims through staking, to cover the Nagagami Carbonatite/Alkalic Complex, located about 65 kilometers Northwest of Hearst, Northern Ontario. The staked area is equivalent to about 14,600 hectares or 140 square kilometers. A study of the magnetic data for the Nagagami Complex and the Niobec Mine both indicate a donut-shaped structure with syenitic rocks forming the circular magnetic high with carbonatitic rocks forming the central magnetic low. At Niobec, it is in the central magnetic low where the Niobium and Rare Earth mineralization is hosted.
19 contiguous patented mining claims covering approx. 304ha, 16 claims in S. Corbiere Township and 3 claims in N. Esquega Township. The Company owns 100% mineral rights subject to 1-5% NSR and 5-10% NPI subject to payback of all historic costs. A wholly-owned gold exploration property in the Wawa area of Northern Ontario.
Noble has acquired a Copper-Precious Metals Prospect near Hearst, Northern Ontario. The Company has optioned to acquire a 100% interest in 204 claim units in Way Twps. The claims extend from about 4 to 15km southwest of the town of Hearst. The staked area is equivalent to approximately 4,500 hectares.
A 140kg boulder was found in the area containing significant concentrations of base and precious metals, upon which an analysis, conducted in 2019 by the Ontario Geological Survey, determined that the boulder contained; 71.8% copper, 3.5% lead, 1.09% zinc, 252 g/T of silver, 3.79 g/T of gold, 4.43 g/T of palladium, and 2.22 g/T of platinum and consisted primarily of the mineral cuprite. The significant discovery of the highly mineralized boulder was in an area that has not seen much past exploration. The discovery of the source of the boulder would be an important mineral find.
Graphite property in the Outaouais area of Western Quebec area of the Grenville Sub province of Quebec. The Buckingham Property total to 62 claims (3,726 hectares). The additional 32 claims cover the Buck Graphite Occurrence that has been explored as recently as 2016. In 2013, a high-resolution heliborne magnetic (MAG) and time domain electromagnetic (TDEM) survey covered the area surrounding and the newly acquired claims. One anomaly outlined a 1-kilometer-long conductor historically known to host graphite mineralization.
Copper-Nickel-PGM property near Val d’Or, Quebec. The property consists of 15 claims (483 hectares). The property is road and power accessible, located only 4 kilometers east of Highway 117, the highway that connects Montreal to Val d’Or. The Cere Villebon property consists of pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite mineralization in fracture fillings hosted by ultramafic rocks in the metamorphic halo of the Freville Batholith. The copper, nickel, platinum group mineralization is located in two zones, the North and the South Zone. Drilling and resource estimates done by the Groupe La Fosse Platinum Inc. in 1987, evaluated a historical resource of 421,840 tonnes grading 0.52% copper, 0.72 % nickel and 1.08 g/t combined platinum-palladium (Groupe La Fosse Platinum Inc., 1987 Annual Report). This estimate is historical in nature, non-compliant to NI 43-101 Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves standards, and therefore should not be relied upon.
Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-Gold property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. The property consists of 12 claims (518 hectares). The property is road and power accessible, located about 100 kilometers south of Rouyn-Noranda. The Laverlochere property is located on the southern part of the east-west trending BelleterreAngliers greenstone belt that is made up of an assemblage of sedimentary and volcanic rocks of Archaen age. Several Nickel-Copper-Platinum Group occurrences and showings have been discovered in the Belleterre-Angliers greenstone belt. Approximately 30 km east of the Laverlochere property, the Lac Kelly property reportedly contains of 1.4 million tonnes of 0.7% Copper, 0.7% Nickel, 0.33 g/t Platinum+Palladium with a potential for minor amounts of Cobalt and Rhenium. In the same general area, Blondeau Nickel has outlined 227,000 tonnes of mineralization grading 0.45% Copper and 0.45% Nickel. Historic exploration in the area has outlined four separate zones of Nickel-Copper-Platinum Group mineralization in gabbroic bodies interbedded in mafic to felsic volcanics (the above estimates are historic in nature, not 43-101 compliant.)
576 mining claims (the “Claims”) in Central Newfoundland, covering an area totaling approximately 14,400 hectares that is geologically mapped as a single unit of Cambrian-Ordovician siliclastic sediments trapped between a series of non-magnetic Devonian Plutons to the west and southeast. The plutons themselves are not considered to be of exploration interest but they could have altered the rocks around them. From the regional magnetic data, a strong magnetic trend exists within the siliclastics that is interpreted to be an unmapped volcanic intrusion. A preliminary structural interpretation, based solely on regional scale aeromagnetic surveys, suggests a multi-fold metamorphic history with a very high potential for repetition of stratigraphy within these newly staked claims.
