Drill program designed to test historical targets drilled by Inco in the 1960's and Chevron in the 1980's
An Inco drill hole intersected: 9.25 g/t gold over 0.3m plus 0.51 g/t gold over 10.7m and 1.24 g/t gold over 6.5m*
A Chevron drill hole intersected 7.9 g/t gold over 2.0m within 2.6 g/t gold over 7.9m*
2020 Drill program by Noble intersected 0.44 g/t gold over 38.5m however the hole ended in mineralization and will be extended*
Additional drilling will test approximately 5.5km of strike length including coincident magnetic and electromagnetic anomalies thought to host the gold mineralization.
The drill program is funded by the Ontario Junior Exploration Program sponsored by the Ontario Government to fund up to $200,000 of the proposed program

Toronto, Ontario - TheNewswire – January 6 , 2021 – Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. ( "Noble" or the "Company" ) (TSXV:NOB ) ( FRANKFURT:NB7 ) ( OTC:NLPXF) today announces that mobilization of a drill and crew has begun on its Dargavel/Aubin property. The drill program is designed to test historic gold values intersected by Inco in the 1960's (Aubin Twp) and Chevron in the 1980's (Dargavel Twp). A minimum of 2,000 meters is planned. The Dargavel/Aubin Property is owned 100% by Noble subject to a 50/50 Option /JV with a private investor and to a 2% Net Smelter Royalty held by Franco Nevada.
Of the many targets available, two have been chosen that appear to hold the highest potential.
Target 1 in Dargavel Township (Figure 1) is planned to test the area where past drilling by Chevron (1984) and Noble (2020) intersected the following values:
7.9 g/t gold over 2.0m within 2.6 g/t gold over 7.9m * (Chevron 85-4, Figure 2)
And follow-up drilling by Noble intersected:
0.44 g/t gold over 38.5m * (Noble DAR-20-06, Figure 2)
The Noble drill hole ended in mineralization and will be extended in order to define the true extent of the mineralization. Additional drilling will be done to test geophysical anomalies along strike for approximately 5.5 km.
Target 2 will test a drill hole drilled by Inco (1960's) that intersected:
9.25 g/t gold over 0.3m plus
0.51 g/t gold over 10.7m and
1.24 g/t gold over 6.5m * (Inco Hole 27089, Figure 2)
* Historical results not 43-101 compliant, True widths not known at this time

The current drill program will test a small proportion of targets identified by Noble. Figure 2 shows historic and Noble drill holes that have shown indications of gold mineralization

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