Rupert Resources Ltd (“Rupert” or the “Company”) reports drill results from its 2018 drilling campaign at its Hirsikangas Project, a Palaeoproterozoic orogenic gold deposit located on a 30km crustal scale shear zone in Central Finland (see Figure 1). The mineral deposit comprising the Hirsikangas Project is contained within 1.2km of strike length and drilled at shallow levels with the deposit outcropping at surface. The drilling reported today confirms the deposit extends at depth and also the presence of parallel or offset structures. Rupert holds exploration licences and reservations totalling over 300km2 covering 30km strike length of the regional Ruhaperä shear structure, is progressing fieldwork and has just completed a detailed UAV magnetic survey.

James Withall, Chief Executive Officer of Rupert Resources said “Rupert plans to use the approach which has been successfully applied at Pahtavaara to explore a new gold district, wholly owned by Rupert, in Central Finland.  Having acquired an known deposit, expanded Rupert’s land position and generated some positive results through the drill bit, we will now systematically work through historical data, develop revised deposit and regional scale geological models, and investigate further targets through mapping, geochemical sampling and ultimately further drilling  along this belt scale project.”
