Nobel Resources Corp. (TSX–V: NBLC; OTC: NBTRF) (the "Company" or "Nobel") provides an update on the initial drill program on its recently acquired Salvadora copper project in Chile. The program commenced in late November and six drill holes have been completed so far, with assay results received for four holes to date. Drilling also continues at its Algarrobo Project with the drill presently testing the large Central Target (see news releases dated September 1, 2021 and November 8, 2021). Results have been received for the first two widely spaced holes drilled on the Northeast Target, assays are pending for the Central Target.

La Salvadora Project
La Salvadora iron oxide copper gold ("IOCG") project, is located approximately 2 hours drive north from Nobel's Algarrobo project.   La Salvadora occurs in the vicinity of the large Manto Verde (Anglo American) and Santo Domingo (Capstone Mining) IOCG deposits (Figure 2). The area is well serviced by all-weather roads and can be worked year-round. The region is well established as a mining area where community support is known to be strong and there is good access to infrastructure, including electricity, water and ports and mining infrastructure in region. The drill program commenced in late November with a break for the holiday Season and six drill holes have been completed to date, with assays received for four holes to date, all in the area of previously reported reverse circulation drill hole SLVA-RC-0002. The initial targets on the property include:

  1. Area of SLVA-RC-0002 which intersected 72 meters grading 1.21% copper and 0.21 g/t gold. This area is wide open for expansion.
  2. A second distinct buried magnetic anomaly approximately 1 kilometer to the south with only a single drill hole in it (SLVA-RC-0010) which intersected 20 meters grading 0.6% copper and 0.15g/t gold at shallow depths.
  3. A series of drill holes to evaluate the extension of the copper oxide zone that extends at least 750 meters along a northwest trending mineralized structure.

All the holes drilled to date by Nobel have intersected mineralization containing chalcopyrite as well asspecularite, pyrite, magnetite hosted in hydrothermal breccias varying in core thickness from 30 meters to 73.4 meters. The widest intersection to date is from hole SAL21-006, drilled on target 2, the buried magnetic anomaly described above. This hole intersected 73.4m of mineralized breccia from 154.7m to 228.1m and assay results are pending for this hole.

The first five drill holes targeted the depth and lateral extensions below previously identified copper oxide mineralization at surface in the vicinity of historical RC drill hole SLVA-RC-0002 (see news release dated November 8, 2021). Following completion of the initial scout holes on this target, the drill was recently moved to the area of the buried geophysical anomaly (target 2), where hole 6 is located. Table 2 below summarizes the results from holes 1,2,4 and 5. Assays are pending for holes 3 and 6.

According to David Gower, P.Geo., CEO of Nobel, "We have only been working on Salvadora for a few weeks and seeing wide mineralized breccias this early in the program is highly encouraging. Although copper grades within these first drill holes are highly variable, we have confirmed this is an extensive mineralized system that needs to be systematically explored to find the higher grade portion."

According to Vernon Arseneau, P.Geo., COO of Nobel, "The results obtained to date at Salvadora confirm the presence of at least two extensive mineralized bodies associated with hydrothermal breccias that are typical of deposits within the area. It is very early in the exploration program, however drilling has demonstrated there is a thick zone of mineralized hydrothermal breccia that is continuous between the holes drilled to date. Subsequent exploration will attempt to identify areas with higher grades such as are being mined presently in this area of Chile. The breccia zones are generally in the 50m range in thickness. The Company is planning to complete this initial scout phase of drilling and use it to plan the next phase of drilling to better define size, continuity and grade of these exciting targets."

Note the Company has not seen QA/QC data nor are there RC chips preserved from the historical RC drill holes SLVA-RC-0002 or SLVA-RC-0010 results. Readers are cautioned that these potential grades are from single drill holes in otherwise untested mineralized zones and there has been insufficient exploration by the Company or its qualified person at La Salvadora to define a mineral resource or mineral reserve estimate and it is uncertain whether further exploration will result in these targets being delineated as a mineral resource or mineral reserve.

Algarrobo Update
The geophysical target drill program started on the Northeast Target at Algarrobo due to the logistical difficulties accessing the central and southwest areas of the large Central geophysical anomaly where access roads were constructed and water holding tanks had to be installed (see Figure 5 below).

The Company has now completed a total of six holes on the geophysical target follow up of which assay results have been received for the first two (AGL21-046 and AGL21-47) from the Northeast Target. Both drill holes intersected wide sections of potassic altered intrusive rocks with varying amounts of disseminated and veinlets of pyrite, pyrrotite, magnetite and minor chalcopyrite over approximately 200 meters.

Assay results have yet to be received for the four holes which have been drilled into the main part of the Central anomaly and the Southwest anomaly. Drilling on these targets presented an unexpected challenge in that the thickness of sand dunes in this part of the property increased to 150-180 meters thick as compared to less than 5 meters in the northeast part of the property. All four holes intersected potassic alteration including biotite breccias with pyrite, pyrrotite, magnetite and minor chalcopyrite. In addition, a 3.0m quartz-tourmaline pyrite-chalcopyrite breccia was intersected in the south Gloria target located near the edge of the large magnetic anomaly.

The alteration observed on this target appears to outline a large area of porphyry style alteration and mineralization covering 3.0 by 5.0 kilometers that warrants further testing. Holes drilled to date are spaced at 1 kilometer apart in the central zone and 2 kilometers to the edges from each other leaving significant room for additional exploration.

Vernon Arseneau, P.Geo., COO of Nobel remarks, "The initial results of this drill program are resulting in a revision of the geological model for the project. Where it was believed to be an Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) environment, the alteration we are seeing in the deep drilling both in the Northeast and Central Target areas is more characteristic of potassic alteration associated with porphyry deposits in Chile. This is a very large target area and while we have not intersected ore grade mineralization, we have identified an extensive and completely new system. Zonation within Chilean porphyry systems are very well understood and ongoing mineralogical analysis will be used to provide vectors towards where, in the large alteration systems higher grade copper mineralization is most likely to occur. This will be an important guide for future drill targeting.   The property hosts a lot of historical copper mineralization distributed over 5 kilometers of historical workings, two large scale structures associated with copper mineralization and located in one of the premiere copper producing regions. There is now evidence of a previously unexplored large potential porphyry system and it will require some persistence to effectively evaluate it."

All drill holes drilled to date have been sampled for mineralogical analysis work to assist in defining the alteration pattern and define vectors towards potentially more strongly mineralized parts of the system. Given the large size of the alteration zone, the observed weak mineralization and the high number of copper bearing veins associated with the artisanal mines, and the large spacing between drill holes done so far, the Company feels that additional exploration drilling is warranted on this target. The alteration, mineralization and plethora of mineralized veins are all characteristics commonly associated with large porphyry copper systems. The mineralogical analysis will provide important information for better targeting future drilling.

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.

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.
