Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – December 5, 2022 – (“Noble” or the “Company”) (), (FRANKFURT:NB7), (OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to report the discovery of rare earth mineralization during a recent drill program on the Nagagami Project northwest of Hearst, Ontario.
Anomalous values of rare earth metals encountered throughout hole NG-22-02
High values of 0.36% Ce and 0.12% Nd
TREO values above include 0.090% Nd over 4.0 metres* plus 0.087% Nd over 11.0 metres*.
Analyses have been received for the Company’s Nagagami Project near Hearst, Ontario. A total of 1,302 meters were drilled in two vertical holes to test the theory that Rare Earth Element (“REE”) and Niobium (“Nb”) mineralization could be found in the Nagagami Carbonatite Complex. The target of the drilling was a magnetic low in the centre of the Nagagami Complex that is geologically comparable to niobium- and rare earth-bearing complexes discovered and mined elsewhere. The St Honore, (Niobec) Carbonatite in Quebec is such a complex that is mining separate REE- and Nb-bearing zones.
The Nagagami carbonatite complex is not exposed in outcrop on the property because it is covered by overburden and Paleozoic sediments. That requires geophysical data be used to place the drill holes.
Although anomalous REE values were encountered in both holes, the best results were obtained from Hole NG-22-02.:
408.0 to 412.0 metres*, 0.53% Total Rare Earth Oxides (includes 0.090% Nd) and
417.0 to 427.0 metres*, 0.48 % Total Rare Earths Oxides (includes 0.087% Nd).
The 5 metre core interval between these two intersections has not been sampled but is expected to generate similar values because it consists of the same rock type. That would extend the mineralization to a core length of 20 metres*. Additional sampling of the 5 metre interval and core elsewhere in the hole is scheduled to be completed in December.
Total Rare Earth Oxides = Ce2O3+Dy2O3+Er2O3+Eu2O3+Gd2O3+Ho2O3+La2O3+Lu2O3+Nd2O3+Pr2O3+Sc2O3+Sm2O3 +Tb2O3+Tm2O3+Yb2O3+Y2O3
This result is a new discovery which has not been explored previously. The extent of the zones has not been established at this time, however the company controls about 150 km2 of potential ground.
The best niobium (Nb) intersection was also encountered in Hole NG-22-02 (155 metres below REE values):
582 to 587 metres*, 0.05% Niobium (Nb) (150
*true width not known at this time
Although this niobium result was lower than anticipated, geological evidence indicates that carbonatite complexes tend to be zoned and the location of REE mineralization does not necessarily coincide with the Nb-bearing zones. The St Honore deposit in Quebec has both a rare earth zone (REE) and a separate niobium (Nb) zone.
Vance White CEO Noble Minerals commented: “We are very pleased to have found rare earth mineralization in the second hole of a test drill program. The potential target area is 150 square kilometres, and, to date, we have only explored about 1 square kilometre. We have a lot of work to do.”
Uses of Rare Earth Minerals
Manufacturing permanent magnets is the largest global use of REE’s accounting for 29% of forecasted demand. China presently leads the market by producing 140,000 tonnes of REE’s in 2020. This amount accounts for almost 60% of global production. The Global rare earth market is projected to grow from current USD 5.3 billion to USD 9.6 billion by 2026.
(“Nd, Pr”) Neodymium and Praseodymium – Power the strongest types of rare earth magnets which enable the conversion of electrical energy into motion via permanent-magnet motors. Permanent magnets are an essential component of electric vehicles and modern electronics including, cell phones, televisions, computers, and automobiles and more robust commercial applications.
