Noble has completed the acquisition of the 5% net smelter royalty applicable to ~55,000 hectare of patented mineral rights on its Project 81.
Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSXV:NOB, OTC:NLPXF, FSE:NB7) (“Noble” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of the 5% net smelter royalty applicable to ~55,000 hectare of patented mineral rights on its Project 81 in the Timmins-Cochrane area of northern Ontario. As a result of doing so, those patented properties are now only subject to a 2% royalty. (See Noble’s news releases of October 24, 2019 and November 28, 2019 for more information.) Approximately 24,000 additional hectares of the Company’s Project 81 are not subject to any royalty.
As previously announced, Noble entered into a royalty assignment agreement for the purchase of the current 5% royalty that applies to parts of Project 81. (See Noble’s news release of October 24, 2019.) Noble also entered into agreements requiring that, after having purchased the 5% royalty, Noble will terminate that royalty with respect to Noble’s properties, leaving in place a newly-granted 2% royalty applicable to the same properties as the 5% royalty.
Vance White, Noble’s President and CEO commented: “We’re very pleased to have been able to complete this transaction. We believe that reducing the royalty on a 55,000 hectare portion of Project 81 from 5% to 2% will open up the opportunity of bringing in additional option and joint venture partners for the exploration and development of Project 81, consistent with our project generator business model.”
