4.4g/t gold over 188m from 64m (including 8.9g/t Au over 23m) and 3.8g/t over 141m from 30m (including 8.2g/t Au over 49m) drilled at Ikkari

Rupert Resources Ltd (“Rupert” or “the Company”) reports new drill results from its Ikkari prospect, the focus of its ongoing 60,000m exploration programme at the 100% owned Pahtavaara Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland (figure 1). The mineralised strike length at Ikkari is at least 650m in total (figure 2) with mineralisation on all sections intersected to a depth of at least 300 to 500m.


  • Hole 121021 intersected 3.3g/t gold (“Au”) over 37m from 517m - 400m vertical depth a 100m vertical increase on that section
  • Hole 121023 intersected 3.0g/t Au over 42m from 331m, including 10.7g/t Au over 9m
  • Hole 121024 intersected 2.6g/t Au over 72m, from 86m
  • Hole 121025 intersected 3.8g/t Au over 141m from 30m, including8.2g/t Au over 49m
  • Hole 121026 intersected 4.4g/t Au over 188m from 64m, including 8.9g/t Au over 23m* with a further intercept of 1.5g/t Au over 66m from 365m
  • Hole 121027 intersected 3.0g/t Au over 29m from 286m and 3.0g/t Au over 137m from 327m
  • Ikkari remains open at depth and along strike in both directions

* Highlight intercepts only, see tables 3 and 4 for full breakdown

James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented “Drill hole 121026 is the best intercept reported at Ikkari to date and together with the other headline drill holes released today further confirms the exceptional continuity and grade of the discovery over significant drill intercept lengths.  Ikkari is emerging as one of the best new discoveries of this gold cycle with a near surface, high grade component allied with non-refractory metallurgy in a top tier jurisdiction in close proximity to infrastructure.  Drilling continues at priority targets on our wholly owned 451km2 licence package in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt.”
