Rupert Resources Ltd (“Rupert” or “the Company”) is pleased to report copper assays from initial Heinä Central drilling that show the wide sulphide-rich brecciated zones contain significant copper mineralisation along with the gold assays previously reported. In addition, assay results from hole 119050 extend the strike of mineralised zone at Heinä Central to 350m. New drilling at the “Island” target, 2km east of Heinä Central, provides evidence of another similar mineralised system.
• The scale of the multiple sulphide-rich breccias that host gold and copper mineralisation at Heinä Central continues to increase. Drill results over 350m of the 700m EM geophysical anomaly show strong mineralisation. Further drilling is currently underway.
• Hole 119049 intersected two breccia zones. Copper assays from the upper zone show high grades up to 4.3% Cu associated with high grade gold zones. The lower zone which extends up to 82m includes intercepts of: 19m of 0.6% Cu & 0.7g/t Au from 125m (including 1.6% Cu & 0.3g/t Au / 3m from 126m) and 37.5m of 0.8% Cu & 0.4g/t Au from 154m (including: 1.6% Cu & 0.3g/t Au / 1m from 156m, 1.8% Cu & 0.4g/t Au / 1m from 159m, and 2.7% Cu & 0.9g/t Au / 5m from 166m)
• New drilling at a second regional target, the “Island”, following anomalous base of till sampling over EM geophysical anomalies, has intersected similar mineralisation to the Heinä Central system. This target is 2km east of Heinä Central.
James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented “The latest assay results from Heinä Central demonstrate significantly increased widths as a result of the potentially economic contribution from copper, and the ever increasing scale of the mineralising system. Our exploration program continues to deliver excellent results. The intensity of the program is now increasing with three diamond rigs active, a base of till rig testing further new targets and a detailed EM geophysical survey starting next week.”
