TORONTO, March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ring of Fire Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX-V: ROF, FRANKFURT: RG5, OTC.PK: HWKPF) is pleased to announce additional results from its current drilling program have confirmed that the width in the western part of the Kingsmill Nickel Body is approximately 400m.  

Investors are reminded that effective Wednesday, March 7, 2012, the Company's name and trading symbol on the TSX Venture Exchange will change to "Noble Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: NOB).

Drill holes KML 12-03 and KML 12-04 were designed to establish the orientation and attitude of north and south contacts respectively of the mineralized Nickel Body. Both KML 12-03 and KML 12-04 were drilled at an Azimuth 30 degrees and a dip of -45 degrees. KML 12-03 was collared in the Serpentinized Peridotite, with only 14.0m of overburden and intersected the north contact at 264.4m downhole. KML 12-04 was collared outside of the mineralized body and intersected the south contact of the Mineralized Serpentinized Peridotite at 314.0m and was terminated in mineralization at 428.2m. (See Figure 1; Preliminary Assay results of KML 12-03 and KML 12-04 are tabulated in Tables 1 & 2.)


Drill Holes KML 12-03 and 04 were drilled within a large magnetic anomaly (see release of Feb 6, Feb 21, & Feb 28, 2012) confirming geology and mineralization from previously released historical drilling results.

Drilling continues to test the eastern extension of this anomaly with a suite of 5 holes being drilled on an 1,800 metre step-out on which assays results are pending.

Nickel results released are preliminary Aqua Regia-ICP (1E3-ICP) and a 4-acid Total Digestion TD-ICP (1F2-ICP) analysis done by Activation Laboratories Inc. (Actlabs). Samples are prepared at Actlabs in Timmins (ISO 9001 accredited) and shipped to Thunder Bay or Ancaster (ISO 17025 accredited) for specific analysis.The company has also requested a Code 8-AR wet chemistry assay quality analysis for Nickel on all samples greater than 0.25% Ni.

Aqua Regia (AR–ICP) analysis is designed to dissolve all non-silicate Ni minerals, while the 4-acid Total Digestion (TD-ICP) analysis is designed to dissolve both sulphide and silicate Ni minerals.

QA/QC Protocol:

ROF has implemented a quality-control, quality assurance program to ensure best practice principals are being applied in the sampling and analysis of the drill core. NQ size drill core is delivered, logged, tagged and saw cut in a secure facility in Timmins, and half the drill core is sampled in standard intervals. The remaining half of the core is stored in a secure location. The drill core is transported in batches in sealed bags to the Actlabs prep lab in Timmins, Ontario by ROF personnel. Actlabs is an ISO/IEC 17025 certified Laboratory by the Standards Council of Canada. In addition to quality assurance controls at the laboratory, blanks, and certified standards are been inserted into the sample stream at random intervals. ROF also request a pulp split of a specific sample within the sample steam at random.
