Rupert Resources Ltd (“Rupert” or “the Company”) reports significant diamond drilling intercepts representing new gold discoveries at its Area 1 target area, 15km from the Pahtavaara mill at the Pahtavaara Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt of Northern Finland.
In a focussed diamond drill program, two holes were planned to confirm separate targets and both intercepted sulphide mineralisation within distinct metasedimentary sequences. Significant intercepts include 10.5m grading 3.55g/t Au in hole 119032, 90m below a base of till anomaly of 21g/t Au. Hole 119033 intersected 2.0m grading 3.4g/t Au along with broad zones of lower grade gold and copper mineralisation associated with sulphides throughout the length of the hole (tables 1 & 2).
James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented
“These new discoveries validate the systematic exploration program Rupert is undertaking and we look forward to testing multiple further targets, generated by the same methods, on Rupert’s prospective 290km2 land package. The two headline intercepts are located 800m from each other, along different structures, with mineralisation hosted within a sequence of sulphide-rich metasediments and volcanic rocks, that have not previously been identified from historic geological studies. The fact that the mineralisation is hosted by sulphide-rich zones is conducive for using geophysics and possibly suggests potential for better continuity.”
