Graham Chisholm
Director, President & CEO

Nubian Resources Ltd is a Junior Mineral Resource Exploration Company whose objective is to create value for our shareholders by discovering and developing mineral resources, which can be profitably exploited.

Nubian Resources Ltd is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, (TSX.V: NBR) and is focused on Gold, Copper and Cobalt.

The company’s prime focus is on precious metal with a resource potential of 2-3 Mio Au of gold equivalent and to find JV partners to develop it’s African properties.

Excelsior Springs (Nevada)
Nubian’s primary precious metal asset is the Excelsior Springs gold property in Nevada, USA. The company has recently completed a NI- 43-101 report on the property which concluded “based on the results of previous drilling programs, the Excelsior Springs property should be considered an advanced-stage exploration project having significant potential to host one or more open-pittable gold deposits.”

The objective is to create a minimum “inferred + indicated” resource of 1 million Oz Gold of which 0.5million Oz will be classified in the “indicated” category over the next 3 years.

The Excelsior Springs Gold Prospect is located in west-central Esmeralda County, Nevada and lies within the Walker Lane, a zone of regional-scale, northwest-trending, strike-slip faulting, which hosts a significant number of precious metal deposits and is approximately 50 miles WSW of the Goldfield District, with past production of +10 million ounces gold. The Tonopah District, with a past production of 2 million ounces gold and 100 million ounces silver, lies approximately 65 miles to the northeast. The Buster mine, the main past producing mine located on the patented claims, has past production estimated at 18,000 tons at 1.2 opt gold. The workings are still accessible through the Buster Shaft which is 235 ft. deep.
Several exploration companies have conducted drilling programs on the property, and the results have begun to define an extensive zone of gold mineralization. Drilling around the Buster and Upper shafts has outlined the Buster mineralized zone approximately 1,000 feet-long and 200 feet-wide.
