Noble Mineral Exploration Inc.

Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. ( " Noble " or the "Company" ) (TSXV:NOB ) ( FRANKFURT:NB7 ) ( OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to announce that it has signed a purchase and sale agreement for the previously announced transaction to sell properties from its Project 81 to Canada Nickel Company Inc. (" Canada Nickel ").  Pursuant to the agreement, approximately 1, 23 1 patented properties and single cell mining claims (the "Properties" ) in Crawford, Lucas, Nesbitt, Aubin, Mahaffy, Kingsmill, Mabee, MacDiarmid, Dargavel and Bradburn Townships.  This transaction was previously announced by Noble in a news release on April 22, 2021.  The Properties are all within Noble's Project 81

The transaction has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the " TSXV " ), with completion being subject to final approval of the TSXV.

As previously announced, the transaction is designed to consolidate all of the key nickel targets within Noble's Project 81 land package such that they will be held by Canada Nickel, while allowing Noble to focus its exploration activities on gold/VMS targets in other areas of Project 81, as well as on other properties held by Noble.

The principal terms of the transaction are as follows:

  • - Noble will transfer ownership and title to the Properties to Canada Nickel.

  • - The Properties are organized in seven areas (the " Property Areas "). Noble will hold a 2% net smelter returns royalty on approximately 720 claims in Mahaffy, MacDiarmid and Bradburn Townships.  Those claims are located in three of the Property Areas , with that royalty being subject to a 50% buyback (which, if fully exercised, would reduce Noble's royalty to 1%).  The exercise price for the buyback is $1.5 Million per Property Area if exercised during the first year after closing, increasing to $2.5 Million per property area if exercised during the second year after closing, and further increasing to $5 Million per property if exercised at any time thereafter. Noble will also continue to hold the existing right to acquire a royalty of between 0.25% and 0.875% on a small number of claims in MacDiarmid Township, having acquired that right when it acquired those claims earlier in 2021.  The 250 patented properties that are included in the Properties to be sold to Canada Nickel in this transaction are not subject to a royalty held by Noble, but will remain subject to an existing royalty held by another party .

  • - Noble will be issued 3.5 Million common shares of Canada Nickel as payment under this transaction.  Those shares will be subject to a four-month hold period.  Noble has undertaken to distribute those 3.5 Million shares of Canada Nickel as a dividend-in-kind to Noble's shareholders after the expiration of the four-month hold period.  That distribution remains subject to compliance with TSXV policies and applicable laws and regulations.  The record date, the distribution date, the effective ratio of Canada Nickel shares per Noble shares that will apply to the distribution and the other conditions of the distribution will be announced after the expiration of the four-month hold period.

Vance White, President and CEO of Noble said, "This acquisition effectively consolidates all of the key nickel targets within Noble's Project 81 land package with Canada Nickel, which is led by Mark Selby and his well-recognized team of experts in the nickel industry. It will allow Noble to focus on the multiple gold/VMS targets in its remaining substantial land package. The anticipated post-closing dividend by Noble of approximately 3.5 million Canada Nickel shares to the Noble shareholders, which are valued at approximately $11 million based on current market value, would provide Noble's shareholders with further direct interest (in addition to 10 million shares previously distributed) in not only the option properties but also the main Crawford Nickel deposit which continues to be advanced aggressively . In May 2021, Canada Nickel reported a PEA indicating a IRR of ~16% using a nickel price of US$7.75 per lb, the price of which is currently US$9.06 per lb, with the potential for additional increases due to increased battery and EV demand. Canada Nickel is currently undertaking a feasibility study which, I understand, should be available later in 2022. Further, the transaction will eliminate the need for Noble to carry out any downstream financing in order to maintain a Joint Venture interest in the properties to be sold.  Noble will also retain a 2% NSR (subject to buyback terms) on the staked mining claims in Mahaffy, MacDiarmid and Bradburn Townships. Even after completion of the transaction and distribution of 3.5 million Canada Nickel shares, Noble would retain more than 2.4 million shares of Canada Nickel."
