Peat Resources Options Noble Minerals Project 81 Dargavel Township Property
Toronto, Ontario / TheNewswire / October 2, 2017 – Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. ( “Noble” ) ( TSX-V:NOB, FRANKFURT: NB7, OTC.PK:NLPXF) and Peat Resources Limited (“Peat”) (TSX-V:PET) are pleased to announce that they have signed a binding Letter of Intent (LOI) to earn up to a 75 percent interest in specific target areas (the “Project Area”) in Noble’s Dargavel Township property (the “Dargavel Property”), which comprises part of Noble’s Project 81.
The Dargavel Property is vastly underexplored, but has historical drill hole results of Gold and Nickel, dating back to the 1960’s. The Property has been covered by modern (2012) Heliborne EM and Mag surveys which have identified a number of drill ready targets and conductor trends of Gold, VMS and Nickel. The Property in part will be covered by a current modern, proprietary Gravity Gradiometer Survey which is currently being executed.
Under the terms of the option agreement, Peat can earn an initial 51% interest in a Project Area of the Dargavel Property by making a cash payment of $100,000, issuing 7,500,000 common shares, issuing 7,500,000 warrants exercisable at $0.10 per share or such lower exercise price as may be permitted by the TSX-V and having a term expiring five (5) years after issuance, and incurring a minimum of $1,000,000 of qualifying expenditures in the twelve months following the execution of the option agreement.
Peat can earn an additional 24% interest in a Project Area of the Dargavel Property by issuing 7,500,000 common shares to Noble, issuing 7,500,000 warrants to Noble exercisable at the greater of $0.15 per share or such lower exercise price as may be permitted by the TSX-V and having a term expiring five (5) years after issuance, and incurring a further $1,000,000 of qualifying expenditures on or before the second anniversary of the execution of the option agreement.
The Dargavel Property is located just north of Timmins and has access to all the amenities necessary to carry out an extensive exploration program including personnel, contractors, road, power and water.
Vance White, Noble’s President and CEO commented: “ We’re pleased to welcome the team of experts associated with Peat to follow up on earlier work carried out by others but with the availability of modern, state of the art geophysics and gravity we feel there is a tremendous opportunity to identify mineral wealth on what has been a relatively underexplored project area in close proximity to very satisfactory infrastructure. A number of drill ready targets have already been identified in the 12 townships that comprise this project area. Noble believes that VMS deposits of the Kidd Creek type occur in clusters.”
Patricia Mannard, CEO of Peat, added: “We were impressed with the previous work and resources that Mr. White and his team have brought to bear on Project 81. The Dargavel Property, in particular, is one of the properties that have been identified as a potential Kidd Creek cluster opportunity. We are excited to be involved in further developing this project, with a world-class team and state-of-the-art technology available to advance exploration and identification of the potential mineral opportunity in Dargavel.”
