140 kg Boulder Discovered Containing 71.8% Copper, 252 g/t Silver, 3.79 g/t Gold and 6.65 g/t Platinum Group Metals

Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. ( "Noble" or the "Company" ) (TSXV:NOB ) ( FRANKFURT:NB7 ) ( OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to announce that the company has Optioned a 100% interest in 204 claim units by staking to hold in 214 claims in Way Township. The claims extend from about 4 to 15 km southwest of the town of Hearst, Ontario. The staked area is equivalent to approximately 4,500 hectares or 45 km 2

  • Noble has acquired by staking 214 claims (4,500 hectares or 45 sq. km) on the prospective mineral area;

  • The exploration model is the occurrence of a supergene alteration zone of a Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide deposit;

  • A 140 kg boulder found in the area near Jogues about 11 km SW of Hearst Ont.  contains significant concentrations of base and precious metals;

  • On analysis the sample was found to contain 71.8% copper, 252 g/t silver, 3.79 g/t gold and 6.65 g/t platinum group metals;

  • There has not been any recent exploration since the 1960's when Algoma explored for iron ore.

A sample of the metalliferous boulder, brought to the Timmins Mining District Regional Resident Geologist in 2019 by a Mr. A. Cousineau, was submitted for chemical analysis to Geolabs in Sudbury to establish its metal and mineralogical makeup. Geolabs determined that the boulder contained: 71.8% copper; 3.5% lead, 1.09% zinc; 252 g/T of silver, 3.79 g/T of gold; 4.43 g/T of palladium; and 2.22 g/T of platinum and consisted primarily of cuprite (van Hees et al., 2020).

The type of copper mineralization found in the boulder is unusual for copper mineralization found in the Superior Province of the Canadian Shield.  The primary mineral is cuprite, a soft, heavy, red oxide mineral (Cu 2 O) that is an important ore of copper worldwide.

In 2021, Noble launched an exploration program on the property to in an effort to identify the source of the boulder.  Basal till samples collected from two fence lines of hand auger holes, located about 100 m and 1 km north of the boulder location, produced 35 gold grains. These gold grains defined a southeast-northwest trending dispersion train that indicates they were transported southeast by a glacial transport from a source area located to the northwest. The dispersion train appears to begin near a northeast trending magnetic anomaly to the northwest of the property. The gold grains are predominantly reshaped (24) but also include modified (7) and pristine (4), supporting evidence of local source.

Work will continue during the 2022 field season including an airborne survey, glacial till investigations and eventual diamond drilling.

Vance White, President and CEO of Noble, said "this is a very significant discovery of a highly mineralized boulder in an area that has not seen much past exploration.  The discovery of the source of the boulder would be an important mineral find.  Even a small deposit of this material would be extremely valuable at current metal prices. Noble will continue its exploration program to establish the source of the boulder"

Fortune Minerals Eyes Strategic Partners After C$16.2 Million Federal Funding for NICO Project

Fortune Minerals (TSX:FT,OTCQB:FTMDF) will be working to secure strategic partners to invest in the NICO project following recent funding from the US and Canadian governments totaling C16.2 million to advance the cobalt-gold-bismuth-copper project to production, CEO and President Robin Goad told the Investing News Network.

“So the financing plan for our asset, after we complete all the engineering and permitting work that's being covered by the US and Canadian governments, is to seek the project financing, which would probably be a combination of debt, but also equity. And the equity would be primarily related to strategic partnerships with a user,” said Goad.

If somebody, like a car company or a battery company or a private equity company, wants access to the raw materials that we're going to produce, we want to see some money invested in the project."

China Plans Record Purchase of 15,000 MT of Cobalt Metal

A report from Reuters suggests that China is gearing up to make a big move in the cobalt market, with plans to acquire up to 15,000 metric tons (MT) of cobalt metal from local producers this year.

The acquisition, overseen by the state’s National Food and Strategic Reserves Administration, aims to bolster the country's stockpiles as it jumps from the 8,700 MT of cobalt metal purchased last year.

The country’s decision to purchase such a substantial amount of cobalt is driven by several factors.
