Overview

The idea that copper is “the new oil" may seem strange at first, but there's good reason for these claims. With the copper industry facing a potential 4.7 million metric ton deficit by 2030—experts like Trafigura Group are now saying new mines will need to be built to supply the estimated 10 million tonnes required to meet global demands for this metal.

There's no denying how much global demand there is for copper. In the last year alone, prices have surged from US$2.50 per pound to US$4.58. This has led investors to shift their attention to Chile, the world's top copper producer, as they look to invest in companies capable of supplying this increasing demand.

Nobel Resources (TSXV:NBLC) (OTCQB:NBTRF) is a mining company that's looking to take advantage of mineralized IOCG deposits in Chile through its flagship Algarrobo project. The company is operating in northern Chile, a strategic and relatively unexplored project that boasts past production that has persisted for decades and continues today. Presently artisanal miners are are direct-shipping ore grading at least 12 percent copper to the plant in Copiapo for processing.

An Iron oxide copper gold ore deposit (IOCG) deposits tend to be large in size, metallurgically simple, relatively high-grade, and suitable for highly profitable mines. The famous Candelaria Mine in the region which is owned by the lundin Group is a member of this deposit classification.

Nobel Resources CEO, David Gower, notes that the area has “never really been explored from a modern perspective" and hopes that “we'll be the first group to go in and apply modern techniques to prove up what's a very large system of mineralization."

Gower also explained to INN how the “Chilean coastal copper belt… is one of the most prolific copper belts in the world." It boasts “exceptional grades," with initial underground sampling with values as high as an approximately 15-30 percent copper range. Copper and, to a lesser extent, gold make Chile the ideal location for a new mining investment project.

The Company is planning a drill campaign, commencing September 10, to test 5 large targets comprising magnetic and coincident IP anomalies and with associated copper mineralization identified near surface in most cases (Figure 2 below shows the targets and approximate locations of the planned drilling). The campaign will comprise 40-50 diamond drill holes ranging in depth from 100 meters to approximately 500 meters for a total of 10,000 – 12,500 meters of drilling. Given the large scale of particularly the Central Target, several long holes per section will be required to evaluate the anomalies. The configuration used for the IP survey penetrates to at least 400 meters and the anomalies persist to that depth. Typically, IOCG deposits have a large vertical extent that can exceed 1 km.

Chile is a world-class, top mining country that contains valuable IOCG deposits. The country's mining potential is even more lucrative when you consider that a large portion of the high-grade mineralization occurs close to the surface. The Algarrobo project is located within 25km of a port and a smelter, plant and mill are located 45km south by road in the nearby city of Copiapó.

Gower describes the opportunity as “a very unique story" and believes Nobel Resources's main project has “a bright future at least for the next few years." Drilling operations have already begun, and the physical program for the project is halfway to completion. The business has achieved a National Instrument (NI) 43-101 from Canada with this progress.

Having started with a C$5 million budget, the company successfully raised over C$9 million, allowing it to accelerate the project and deliver further results over the next 12 months, according to the CEO. As of April 2021, the company maintains a strong cash position. Nobel Resources boasts a fully-funded and permitted exploration program.

Fully diluted, the company has 71,440,690 shares outstanding, which includes 3,755,000 and 1,907,400 shares worth of options and warrants respectively. Nobel Resources can be an excellent opportunity for investors, as it allows them access to an advanced, high-grade IOCG project in an active region with great discovery potential.

Nobel Resources's Company Highlights

  • Nobel Resources has a fully funded and permitted exploration program with a tight capital structure and shareholder alignment.
  • The company boasts a proven leadership team, with CEO David Gower bringing over 20 years of industry experience through his time at Falconbridge (now Glencore), and serves as a current Director of Alamos Gold (TSX:AGI).
  • Initial samples taken at the Algarrobo project site revealed mineralized veins that may be capable of producing up to 14MM tonnes of copper and gold.
  • The company is operating in a mining-friendly jurisdiction with access to critical infrastructure and additional copper mines in the area.
  • Nobel Resources has the right to acquire 100 percent of the Algarrobo IOCG property.
  • Nobel Resources also received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to acquire 100 percent of the La Salvadora project.

Nobel Resources's Key Project

Algarrobo IOCG Project in Chile

Algarrobo is an extensively mineralized iron oxide copper gold (IOCG) ore region with significant large-scale potential.

The project is strategically located in Chile because the country is a top mining jurisdiction. Chile's mining capabilities benefit from mineralization that is high-grade and close to the surface. Permits are already in place for the operation as well.

Algarrobo is also an ideal mining environment thanks to a low elevation of less than 1,000m above sea level. It's covered and surrounded mainly by a shallow sand cover in the Atacama desert. The ores are of exceptional grade, with mineralized structures in the northeast trend extending at least 6 km. A new mineralized trend called the Gloria Trend has been discovered in thesouth part of the property. Where the two mineralized trends intersect is precisely where the large Central target has been identified in an area that is dune covered and completely unexplored.

Geophysical anomalies and planned drilling at Algarobbo. Partiularly note the Central Target which is 4 km by 2.5 km in an area where the two mineralized structural trends intersect.

The region offers developed infrastructure that's capable of supporting the project. The operation in Algarrobo is within 25 km of port Caldera on the Pacific Ocean, and the world-class IOCG deposits are part of the Major Candelaria coastal belt. A smelter, plant and mill all owned by ENAMI (Chile's National Mining Company) are available for use within 45 km in Copiapó. Paved roads are accessible throughout for easy access.

The deposit type is comparable to that of the major Candelaria deposit 60 km down south or Michilla in the north

Algarrobo contains significant high-grade copper mineralization near the surface. An oxide layer extends over 100 meters in depth, and sulphide mineralization is making its way down 500 meters in adjacent mines. The materialized stockpile has a cut-off grade below 12 percent copper.

Related projects both in the surrounding area and in the past point to the region's high potential for profitable mining operations. Algarrobo is surrounded by mid and large-sized operations; 6 active copper mines can be found within 100 km. For instance, Lundin Mining's Candelaria mine is indicative of IOCG deposits in the district: a 2019A production boasting 320 Mlbs Cu and 88 Koz Au.

The Property has been undercapitalized and possesses a significant upside potential. Nobel is conducting the first systematic evaluation on the 6,161 ha land package and its ample mineralization potential. Deposit mining has only been completed up to 40m, compared to over 500m in adjacent properties. The veins range in thickness between 1m and 8m. The big prize however would be a large tonnage system of the scale Chile is renowned for and targets have been identified with that scale associated with the extensive copper mineralization on the Property.
