Toronto, Ontario – June 24, 2021 – Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (“Noble” or the “Company”) (TSXV:NOB) (FRANKFURT:NB7) (OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Cere Villebon 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 (See Figures 1 and 2).
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. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources, and these estimates should only be considered as an indication of the mineral potential of the Property.
Diamond Drill Hole FV-87-1 drilled by LaFosse Platinum in 1987 into the North Zone intersected 27.38* meters of 0.70% nickel, 0.68% copper, 0.23 g/t platinum, 0.64 g/t palladium and 0.08 g/t gold including 7.65* meters of 0.94% nickel, 1.02% copper (See Figure 1).
* Exact width not known at this time.
Future work will include a complete compilation of past drilling and a drill program to verify past results and extend the two zones along strike and at depth.
The consideration for the acquisition are the costs of staking reserving to the vendor a 2% NSR that will be subject to Noble’s right to buyback 50% of the NSR for $1,000,000.
The Transactions are subject to approval of the Board of Directors of each party where applicable, as well as to TSX Venture Exchange approval and to compliance with securities and other laws and regulations.
Vance White, President and CEO of Noble, said “We are extremely pleased to be able to acquire this potentially valuable asset. Based on historic (non-compliant NI 43-101 resource estimates as stated above and at current commodity prices the in-situ value would have a gross value that could be considered economic. . . All historic drill holes were drilled to a vertical depth of ~100m leaving the deposit open at depth.”
Michael Newbury PEng (ON), a “qualified person” as such term is defined by National Instrument 43-101, has verified the data disclosed in this news release, and has otherwise reviewed and approved the technical information in this news release on behalf of Noble.
