Neglected No Longer Noble Explores Overlooked Ontario Nickel and Gold Targets By Greg Klein
How did virgin territory remain unmolested in Ontario’s promiscuously explored Timmins region? For a number of reasons, the mineral potential of Project 81 went largely unnoticed until 2010. Only the following year did it come under the control of an explorer, at the time known as Ring of Fire Resources. Now, under its new name, Noble Mineral Exploration TSXV:NOB, the company has its attention focused firmly on the property’s Kingsmill nickel and Lucas gold targets.
Timber, not gold or nickel, was the property’s original attraction. That, along with low metal prices and relatively primitive geophysical technology, explains the neglect of its mining potential, Noble President/CEO Vance White explains.
