Highlights of the Nagagami Property (See Noble Press Release Dated Dec. 16, 2021)

  • The exploration model for the Nagagami Carbonatite/Alkalic Complex is based on a Niobec-style of mineralization (Quebec), where Niobium has been produced since 1976 and there is also a Rare Earth Element resource.  In December 2013 Niobec reported a mineral resource estimate as:

Table 1: Mineral Resource Estimates for the Niobec Mine set out in an Iamgold NI 43-101 Technical Report, Update on Niobec Expansion, December 2013. Note: Mineral Resource is not a Mineral Reserve and do not have any demonstrated economic viability.

  • The Nagagami Project falls within the Ontario Government Critical Minerals Directive issued this year, which prioritizes finding local sources of strategic materials.

  • Around the world, governments are implementing policies that are accelerating innovative technology that rely heavily on critical and strategic minerals as raw materials for electric vehicles, clean energy and information communications technology

  • The Nagagami Complex has had minimal exploration including a limited amount of drilling by Algoma in the 1960's in search of iron deposits.

  • Noble has initiated talks with the council of the Constance Lake Fist Nation on how best to proceed with this project.

Significance of Niobium and Rare Earth Elements

According to a European Commission Report (2020), R are E arth elements (LREEs: Light Rare Earth Elements; HREEs: Heavy Rare Earth Elements) have the greatest supply risk of raw materials for key technologies .  N iobium rank s #4 . Noble Minerals is exploring for these commodities in a safe and mining-friendly jurisdiction.

Niobium

Niobium is an extraordinary and highly versatile super - alloy material and is a critical and strategic material essential to many defense and civilian applications .  For example, as an alloying element in high-strength and stainless steel, as a super - alloy for aerospace and land-based power generation, and in superconductors.

For instance, 200 grams of niobium added to the steel of a mid-sized automobile reduces its weight by 100 kg, increasing fuel efficiency by 5% ( World Steel Institute ) .  The use of niobium in vehicles today is already helping to avoid the emission of an estimated 62 million ton s of CO2 per year, according to Niobec (North-America‘s only niobium producer).

North America sources all of its niobium from Brazil (~83%), Canada (~12%) and others (~5%).  With only 3 primary niobium mines globally , all of which have Chinese stakeholders, a more reliable, long-term niobium supply in North America is needed to secure critical minerals supply chains for strategic industries.

Rare Earths Elements

According to the European Commission (2020), R are E arth Elements (LREE & HREE) are highlighted as having the greatest supply risk of raw materials for key technologies.  97% of the world ' s Rare Earth Elements are controlled by China.

There are approximately 20 to 25 pounds of Rare Earths in each Electronic Vehicle produced.

Rare Earth Elements are essential for transitioning to G reen e nergy .  Their importance is not limited to applications in cars, but also in solar panels, windmills, solar photovoltaic, computers, electronics, the smart grid and more. This highlights the need for a secure, domestic supply.

Vance White, President and CEO of Noble, said "we are pleased to do our part in the exploration of a domestic source of Niobium and Rare Earth Elements.  We have started negotiations with the council of the Constance Lake First Nation to explore ways that they can participate in this important project."
