Toronto, Ontario - TheNewswire May 11, 2021 Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. ( "Noble" or the "Company" ) (TSXV:NOB ) ( FRANKFURT:NB7 ) ( OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to announce that it has been advised by its Option and JV partner on Carnegie Township that an  exploration program consisting of down hole geophysical electromagnetic surveys of three drill holes completed in 2019 and 2020 is underway with the following objectives to retrieve a geophysical probe that is blocking hole CG19-09 in order to complete the survey from 2020. Plans are to clear hole CG19-09 and hole CG19-06 and drill a proposed hole near CG19-08 as suggested by Crone Geophysics and further to follow up with a drill program to test all drill targets outlined by the down hole survey.

As reported in December 2020 at Carnegie the partners drilled a total of ten holes totaling 2,889.45m to test conductive trends interpreted from a 2017 Airborne EM & Mag Survey of 2081 line km, that included the Carnegie township and a follow-up 2019 Orientation EM & Mag Survey of 379.8 line kilometer flown in the northern part of Carnegie Twp., in addition to a 934.4 line kilometer Gradient Gravity survey flown in 2018. Four holes encountered anomalous zinc and copper mineralization with CG19-01 intersecting 12.0 m of 0.64% zinc mineralization over 12 metres (core length) from 219.0 m to 231.0 m containing 3.0 m of 1.38% zinc from 223.0 m to 226.0 m that required re-assay . Drill hole CG19-09 assayed 0.72% zinc and up to 0.2% copper over 2.75 m from 282.6 m to 285.35 m. Drill-hole CG19-03 encountered up to 20 m of massive to semi-massive sulphide containing anomalous but low-grade zinc.

Austral Resources Australia Ltd Complementary Exploration Earn-in Agreements with Glencore

Brisbane, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Copper producer Austral Resources Australia Ltd (ASX:AR1) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into reciprocal non-binding exploration earn-in agreements ("Earn-in Agreements") with MIM, a subsidiary of one of the world's largest mining companies, Glencore.

The reciprocal nature of the Earn-in Agreements is value generating for both parties. For Austral, this will involve expanding its oxide exploration activity in both the Exploration Area and within MIM's prospective Russell Fault EPM. Under the Earn-in Agreements, the parties agree to share exploration data and certain resources.

Under the Earn-in Agreements, MIM will have the rights to earn-in up to a 65% interest of Austral's JV EPM's by spending A$6.3m over four years. Austral retains the right to explore for and commercially exploit oxide copper ore within the Exploration Area. Additionally, under the Earn-in Agreement with MIM, Austral is entitled to earn-in up to 65% interest within MIM's Russell Fault EPM by spending A$2.0m over four years, effectively increasing our copper exploration area by 116km2.

The Earn-in Agreements are non-binding and subject to formal documentation being entered into.

Austral will keep the market updated on its status as required.

Key details of the Earn-in Agreements are contained in the balance of this announcement. The Earn-in Agreements with MIM are the culmination of negotiations held with several parties eager to joint venture into portions of Austral's highly prospective exploration tenure and obtain an option to participate in the Company's future growth potential.

Austral's Chief Executive Officer, Steve Tambanis, commented:

"We are excited to collaborate with Glencore on this exploration JV in Queensland's Northwest Minerals Province. Both parties hold a significant tenure position within the region, and it makes absolute sense to combine the tenure for an intensive exploration programme. Glencore are our offtake partners for 40,000t of our Anthill copper cathode and we look forward to working together from an exploration perspective.

This is a win-win transaction for both Austral and Glencore with the potential to discover new orebodies that can extend operations of both companies in the region. Glencore is focussed on discovering new base/precious metal orebodies in this metal-rich area and Austral believes there is excellent potential to define additional oxide copper resources to be processed at its nearby Mt Kelly SXEW plant.

The prospectivity of the area has been significantly enhanced by two new geophysical datasets (Heli-VTEM and a separate fixed wing Falcon Gravity survey) flown by Glencore in late 2021 and processed earlier this year. This new data has generated a number of priority targets for the JV and drilling is expected to commence within months.

Of note, Austral has retained its rights to explore for oxide copper mineralisation on its own tenure and has negotiated the right to explore MIM's tenure for oxide copper mineralisation. We believe that the increased drilling activity in this area will yield more shallow copper oxide mineralisation.

Of Austral's 2,100km2 of EPM tenure, this Earn-in agreement applies to a 330km2 portion immediately about the Lady Loretta Mine (Figure 1*). Austral retains 1,800km2 of EPMs for other exploration initiatives.

Austral recently commenced processing ore from its Anthill Copper Mine - building to rate of 10,000tpa of copper cathode from mid-2022 for a four-year period. This will now allow the Company to increase the pace of its exploration and development activities.

We look forward to further updating shareholders as we build copper production from Anthill and scale-up exploration and development activities."

Cobalt Supply Growth to Come from These 5 Key Assets

According to a Cobalt Institute report, supply growth is likely to lag behind demand in the medium term, with the market expected to shift into a deficit by 2024.

“Rising prices over the last 12 months have incentivized further supply side investments but these are currently insufficient to meet the rate of demand growth,” the document states. “Mined supply will continue to see healthy increases year-on-year in 2022 and 2023 before starting to fall away from 2024 onwards.”

After falling in 2020, cobalt mine supply rose 12 percent year-on-year to reach 160,000 metric tons (MT) in 2021. The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) remained the top producer of the commodity, accounting for 74 percent of global output and 87 percent of annual growth.
