Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire - June 11, 2024 – Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (“Noble” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:NOB, FRANKFURT: NB7, OTCQB:NLPXF) is pleased to provide the following updates:


Acquisition of Mann Twp Claims


Noble has acquired a total of 240 mining claims (the “Mann Claims”) in Mann, Duff, and Reaume Townships, covering an area totaling approximately 5,000 hectares. The Mann Claims were acquired after payment, exploration expenditure commitments and other conditions were satisfied in accordance with on option agreement entered into by Noble in 2021. Under the transaction, the optionors have retained a 2% NSR and a 10% Gross Stone Products Royalty subject to Noble’s right to buyback half of such royalties as further described in a royalty agreement between the parties. For further details regarding the original transactions on the Mann Claims and certain additional properties (collectively, the “Properties”), please refer to the news releases issued by Noble on August 11, 2021 and on July 31, 2023.


The Properties are a portion of the 625 mining claims (the “Optioned Claims”) that are currently subject to an option and joint venture agreement between Noble and Canada Nickel Company Inc. (“Canada Nickel”) whereby Canada Nickel has the right to acquire an up to 80% interest in the Optioned Claims subject to satisfying certain conditions. For further details regarding the option and joint venture agreement between Noble and Canada Nickel, please refer to the news release issued by Noble on February 24, 2022.


Canada Nickel has expressed its interest in exercising its option to acquire an 80% interest in the Properties from Noble pursuant to the option and joint venture agreement. For further details, please refer to the news release issued by Noble on April 22, 2024.


Acquisition of 1,500,000 Units from Spruce Ridge


Noble further announces the acquisition of 1,500,000 units from Spruce Ridge Resources Ltd. (“Spruce”) pursuant to a non-brokered private placement conducted by Spruce which closed on December 20, 2023 (the “Transaction”). For further details on that private placement, please refer to the news release issued by Spruce on December 21, 2023.  

Noble acquired the Spruce units at a price of $0.05 per unit, for an aggregate purchase price of $75,000. Each unit comprised one Spruce common share (“Common Share”) and one half of a Spruce common share purchase warrant.

For the same reason, the Transaction is considered a "related party transaction" pursuant to Policy 5.9 of the Exchange and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 – Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Noble has relied on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 to complete the Transaction on the basis that no securities of the Company are listed on a specified market and the consideration paid by Noble for the Spruce units does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the Company.
