Noble Mineral Exploration drilling starts on Nagagami Niobium project near Hearst

Sep 26, 2022

Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. is pleased to report on progress for a number of its active projects.

  • Drill crews are in the process of mobilizing to the Nagagami Niobium and Rare Earth Property;

  • Calder Township drill program has been completed with a total of 2 holes for a total of 865 meters;

  • Airborne survey over the Boulder project will begin before the end of September;

  • A helicopter airborne magnetic-electromagnetic survey, expected to be completed in October 2022 on the Island Pond Property, Newfoundland.

Nagagami Carbonatite Niobium and Rare Earths Project, Ontario (14,000 hectares)

Noble has entered into an Exploration Agreement with the Constance Lake First Nation ("CLFN)") in relation to exploration and potential development at the Company's Nagagami Project near Hearst, Ontario. The Agreement establishes a commitment by Noble to provide accommodation, to engage in ongoing consultation and establish a mutually beneficial cooperative and productive relationship with the CLFN for projects located in their traditional area. An Early Exploration Permit has been received from the Province and helicopter supported drilling is in the process of mobilizing.

Algoma Ore Properties performed the original airborne magnetic survey in the area that identified the complex. Limited drilling was aimed at the magnetic ring structure in search of iron deposits. Despite drilling in the wrong geology for niobium and rare earth metals, one of the Algoma drillholes returned 0.3% Nb205 from a grab sample of syenite taken at 230 feet downhole.

The program will consist of three diamond drill holes for a total of 2,000 meters. Additional drilling will be planned with favourable results.

Calder Township Drill Program

The Calder Township drill program has been completed. The targeted conductors were explained by semi massive to massive sulphides in intermediate to mafic volcanic rocks. Two holes were drilled for a total of 865 meters. Assays are pending and expected in October 2022.

Boulder Project Airborne Survey (4,500 hectares)

The airborne survey on the Boulder Project is expected to be done before the end of September. In 2019 Ontario Geological Survey analyzed a sample from the 140 kg boulder and 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 Airborne survey will be done to detect conductive and magnetic zones that could be the potential source of the boulder.

Island Pond Property, Central Newfoundland (14,400 ha)

Work will include an airborne magnetic-electromagnetic survey, expected to be completed in October 2022.
