Noble Reports on Mann Township Results from Canada Nickel



Noble Mineral Exploration Inc.

Toronto, Ontario – August 23, 2023 – Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (“Noble” or the “Company”) (TSXV:NOB) (FRANKFURT:NB)(OTC:NLPXF) is pleased to report a News Release issued August 22 reporting results from Northwest Mann Township currently under option to Canada Nickel as quoted below:

“Canada Nickel Confirms Discovery at Mann Northwest Property


  • First eight holes drilled at Mann Northwest intersected multi-hundred metre intervals of mineralized peridotite and minor dunite across combined strike length of 2.7 kilometres

  • Target remains open in all directions

  • Mann Northwest target geophysical footprint of 6.0 km2 is more than triple the size of Crawford project footprint

  • Hole MAN23-02 returned 0.26% Ni over core length of 210 metres including 0.31% nickel over 33 metres. Hole ended with 0.52 g/t Pt+Pd over 29 metres

TORONTO, August 22, 2023Canada Nickel Company Inc. ("Canada Nickel" or the "Company") (TSXV: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF) today released drilling results from a further three holes and assay results from the first five of eight holes drilled on its Mann Northwest Property located in the prolific Timmins Nickel District in Ontario.

Mark Selby, CEO of Canada Nickel commented, “Our regional exploration program continues to deliver with today’s confirmation of another discovery at Mann Northwest, part of Canada Nickel’s Timmins Nickel District. Mann Northwest has a target footprint more than three times that of Crawford and is one of eleven properties with a target footprint larger than Crawford. Three additional holes extended the strike length of mineralization by more than 1,100 metres to 2,650 metres, and assays from first five holes confirmed grades in line with expectations.”

Mann Northwest Property

The Mann property is located 22 kilometres east of Crawford, 20 kilometres south of Cochrane, and 45 kilometres northeast of Timmins. Canada Nickel has an ability to earn an 80% interest in the property owned by Noble Minerals (see press release November 22, 2021). Drilling began at Mann Northwest, which has a target footprint of 6.0 km2, - compared to Crawford target footprint of 1.6 km2 (see Figure 1).

Drilling started in the Northwest zone, with a total of eight holes drilled, all of them intersecting mineralized sections of predominantly well serpentinized peridotite and minor dunite. This release discloses assay results from the first five drillholes, assays for the other three drillholes are pending
(Table 1)

The first five holes delineated mineralization along 1,150 metres of strike length and a width of at least 500 metres. The additional three holes, extended the potential strike length to 2,650 metres. The target remains open in all directions.

MAN23-01 drilled to the southwest and intersected peridotite from top to bottom only interrupted by 23.5
metres of pyroxenite with 0.44 g/t Pt+Pd. Initial samples were taken for mineralogical testing (QEMSCAN),
confirming samples are very well serpentinized with varying amounts of Heazlewoodite and Pentlandite.

MAN23-02 intersected 348.5 metres at 0.23% Ni in peridotite and finished in 28.9 metres of 0.52g/t Pt+Pd
in pyroxenite.

MAN23-03 drilled to the northeast and intersected mineralized peridotite at the top and dunite at the
bottom, with an average grade of 0.23% Ni over 291.5 metres. The hole ended in dunite at 402 metres only
interrupted by diabase dykes near the bottom.

MAN23-04 drilled near the southern end of the target and intersected 301.5 metres of peridotite with 0.18%
Ni, followed by 16 metres of 0.41 metres of Pt+Pd in pyroxenite.

MAN23-05 drilled to the southwest and intersected a sequence of peridotite with minor dunite and
pyroxenite. The hole assayed 366.5 metres of 0.20 Ni, including 11.0 metres of 0.44 g/t Pt+Pd. Hole ended
in mineralized peridotite.

MAN23-13 drilled to the southwest approximately 750 metres northwest of MAN23-05. The hole
intersected 404.5 metres of interlayered dunite, peridotite and pyroxenite with predominantly moderate
to strong serpentinization.

MAN23-14 drilled to the northeast collaring and terminating in mineralized dunite with intervals of
peridotite. The hole is moderate to well mineralized and moderate to well serpentinized across core
length of 390.0 metres.

MAN23-15 drilled to the northeast testing a fold hinge of a major structure, it intersected 415 metres of a
sequence of dunite, peridotite, pyroxenite and gabbro. The hole has sections of very well mineralized and
well serpentinized ultramafic.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains certain information that may constitute "forward-looking information" under applicable Canadian securities legislation. Forward looking information includes, but is not limited to, the carbon capture approach could allow production of Net Zero nickel and generation of an additional tonnes of CO2 credits per tonne of nickel produced after offsetting all emissions, the potential to turn nickel mine into a generator of carbon credits rather than generator of carbon emissions, the production of estimated average of 710,000 tonnes of carbon credits annually and 18 million total tonnes of CO2 of credits over expected life of mine at Crawford, the ability to monetize carbon credits, the ability to quantify carbon capture, emission estimates, the brucite content of the deposit, the scalability of the process, the metallurgical results, the timing and results of the feasibility study including the viability of the inclusion of the IPT Carbonation Process and related facilities as part of the project, the results of Crawford’s PEA, including statements relating to net present value, future production, estimates of cash cost, proposed mining plans and methods, mine life estimates, cash flow forecasts, metal recoveries, estimates of capital and operating costs, timing for permitting and environmental assessments, realization of mineral resource estimates, capital and operating cost estimates, project and life of mine estimates, ability to obtain permitting by the time targeted, size and ranking of project upon achieving production, economic return estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production and capital, operating and exploration expenditures and potential upside and alternatives.
