Toronto, Ontario --News Direct-- Noble Mineral Exploration Inc.
Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire - November 28, 2022 – Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (“Noble” or the “Company”) (TSXV:NOB), (FRANKFURT:NB7), (OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to report on progress on a number of its active projects.
Line-cutting and Induced Polarization, Magnetometer and VLF-EM Surveys have commenced on the 50% held Kidd Creek Project
Final results expected shortly for drill core samples from the Nagagami Niobium and Rare Earth Property
Final Calder drill project analyses received.
Kidd Creek Project
The Kidd Creek Project consists of a group of patents and claims including 50% held with 11530313 Canada Inc acquired from Explor Resources Inc in the vicinity of the Kidd Creek Mine, 24 km north of Timmins Ontario. The Kidd deposit is one of the largest volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits in the world, and one of the world’s largest base metal deposits and lies within the Abitibi greenstone belt and is presently owned by Glencore.
Exploration of this area in the past was hindered by so many companies with small land packages. Over the years, Noble has been successful in assembling one of the largest land inventories in the vicinity of the Kidd Creek Mine.
Noble Minerals plans to conduct strategic Induced Polarization surveys within 2 km of the Kidd Creek open pit on the Fly Creek Rhyolite. The target of the program is rhyolite intercalated with ultramafic rocks on an anticlinal structure. It is postulated that these rhyolites are the same age as the Kidd Creek mineralized rhyolites. Bleeker (1999)* proposed that faults that slice through the Kidd Creek mine fold have displaced the northern limb of the Kidd Creek Mine fold up to 2 km to the north and are interpreted to be time-stratigraphic equivalent. (See Figures 1 and 2).
In addition, the Fly Creek Rhyolite may be the faulted extension of the Chance Rhyolite where Texas Gulf previously intersected several drill holes containing lead, zinc and silver mineralization. (See Figure 3).
To the west Noble will be investigating, a property with Induced Polarization that lies within 600 meters and on the same stratigraphic horizon as the Chance mineralization and the Kidd Creek Mine. (See Figure 4)

Calder Township Drill Program
The Calder Township drill program has been completed. The targeted conductors were explained by semi massive to massive sulphide in intermediate to mafic volcanic rocks. Two holes were drilled for a total of 865 meters. Best values on 1m split core samples were; Au 21 ppb, Pd 25 ppb, Pt 23 ppb, Ag 11.8 ppm, Cu 545 ppm, Pb 1260 ppm, Zn 7170 ppm.
No further work is recommended at this time.
Nagagami Carbonatite Niobium and Rare Earths Project, Ontario (14,000 hectares)
Drilling has been completed on the Company’s Nagagami Project near Hearst, Ontario. A total of 1302 meters were drilled in two holes. The target of the drilling was a magnetic low on the Nagagami Carbonatite Complex where on comparable complexes, niobium and rare earth mineralization has been discovered and mined. An example of this is the St Honore, (Niobec) Carbonatite Complex in Quebec.
The core has been logged, sampled and submitted to the lab. A total of 195 samples were split and submitted to the lab. Final results are expected by the end of November or early December
Additional drilling is planned with favourable results.
