Toronto, Ontario – August 9, 2021 – Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (“Noble” or the “Company”) (TSXV:NOB) (FRANKFURT:NB7) (OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to announce that due to favorable results from the initial 2020 work program in Dargavel Township, further work has been recommended to better define gold mineralization that has now been identified along a strike length of 7.5 km. An Induced Polarization survey will be done to identify areas of increased sulphide concentration within the gold horizon. Geophysical work is expected to start immediately with the 2,000 meter drill program beginning in September. The Dargavel Property is owned 100% by Noble subject to a 2% Net Smelter Royalty.
The funding for this program is being provided 50% by Noble and 50% by a private investor. Noble has agreed with the investor that if the outcome of the program is positive, Noble will enter into good faith negotiations with the investor to enter into an option and joint venture agreement that would recognize the investor and Noble as each holding their respective interests in the drilled property, subject to standard dilution provisions to the extent that either does not fund future maintenance and exploration expenditures. All agreements between Noble and the investor are subject to compliance with TSX Venture Exchange policies.
The 2020 drill program detected gold mineralization over a strike length of 7.5 kilometers, open in both directions. In addition, the true width of the zone has not been determined as evidenced by the fact that drill hole DAR-20-06 ended in mineralization after cutting more than 18 meters of core mineralized with gold. Very little work has been done in the past in Dargavel Township due to the heavy overburden cover and the fact that the area was not open for traditional staking due to the predominance of patented claims.
Of the six holes drilled in 2020, five intersected gold mineralization. The mineralized zones appear to be associated with magnetic and electromagnetic (EM) anomalies that have been identified over the entire strike length by a regional airborne survey executed by Noble and by historic EM surveys.
In addition to gold values, the drilling also detected 1.51 g/t combined platinum and palladium over 1.5 meters associated with gold mineralization in Hole DAR-20-05. Past work in the township has also detected significant nickel, cobalt and platinum group mineralization.
A summary of the significant results can be found in Table 1 and Figure 1.

Vance White, President and CEO of Noble, said ”We are excited to continue the exploration on the Dargavel Township Property. Previous work on the property detected gold mineralization in the five out of six holes drilled. What was not defined by the last program was the total strike length of the zone and the width of the zone. The present program of geophysics and diamond drilling will help to define these unknowns.”
