Noni LLC is the holder of a licence to explore and mine for gold at the deposit "Noni". The Noni deposit  is located in Verkhnebureinsky District,430 km eastward from Khabarovsk and 60 km from Tyrma railway station.

The description of the deposit:

  • Year-round availability of the deposit, existence of the required infrastructure.
  • С1+С2 gold reserves: 301,900 ounces, P1 + Р2:>600,000 ounces.
  • Possibility to extract ore by opencast mining.
  • A mining enterprise with the capacity of 160 thousand tons of ore will be built at the deposit in 2019.

The project for the development of the Noni deposit is enlisted among the investment projects that are planned to be implemented in the Khabarovsk Krai, in accordance with the Khabarovsk Krai Social and Economic Development Strategy until 2025.

Gold mining at the Noni deposit is planned to start in the first half of 2021. Currently, the leading design institute for gold miners Zolotoproekt completed of the design a mining enterprise. Mining enterprise will be built at the Noni deposit in 2020 – 2021.

The Noni deposit was discovered in 1986 by the Tayozhgeologiya Production Geological Association, that was engaged in prospecting and exploring uranium and hardrock gold in the Far East. In the beginning of 2000s Tayozhgeologiya PGA was liquidated. Some its divisions became a part of the Dalgeofizika Federal State Unitary Enterprise.

The Noni deposit is a tectonic block of about 2.5 sq. km, located in the southern part of the western segment of the Noni intrusive dome structure accommodating a gabbro-dioritic magmatic build up, the development of which contributed considerably to the unique features of locally known mineralization. The deposit is confined by east-west and north-south fractures with a northward elongation (2.5 km х1.0 km), along the main ore-bearing and ore-concentrating faults. The Boundaries of the deposit almost coincide with a contrast lithogeochemical halo with a gold grade of over 0.05-0.1 g/t. The Noni deposit has an endogenous postmagmatic origin. Its formation is conditioned by Late Mesozoic tectonic-magmatic processes that led to the development of the above named multi-phase intrusive dome structure within which the deposit is situated.

At present, a number of prospective secondary gold dispersion haloes and multiple abnormal floats with gold graded of up to 26-39 g/t were discovered at the ore field area.

Three main types of ore are distinguished at the Noni deposit. They are: primary gold-quartz-sulphide-polymetallic ores and ores with the same material composition but oxidised, with semi-oxidised ores developed to a lesser extent.
