Rupert Resources Ltd (“Rupert” or “the Company”) reports new drill results from its ongoing exploration programme at the 100% owned Pahtavaara Project in the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Finland.
The Company has confirmed high grades and scale of intercepts across the gold-hosting structural zone at the Ikkari discovery. The new results released here demonstrate that the broad thickness of mineralisation, as well as the high grades, persist across the entire zone (as identified to date).
- Hole 120075 intersected 3.6g/t gold over 181m from 17m (10m vertical) including 5.7g/t gold over 84m*. 21 individual assays are greater than 10.0g/t gold. The hole targeted strike continuity between previously reported east and west zones (see release October 01, 2020) and confirms the high-grade mineralised zone over thick widths (full assay log of this intercept in table 4).
- Hole 120081 intersected 4.4g/t gold over 106.7m from 13.3m (8m vertical),and is a scissor hole to 120075, confirming grade continuity across a broad zone.
- Hole 120082 intersected 3.0g/t gold over 188m from 91m (60m vertical),drilled 50-60m below 120075 and confirming those results across the section
- Hole 120080 intersected 2.0g/t gold over 178.5 from 21.5m (17m vertical),on the adjacent section, 80m away from hole 120075, with width of the zone also confirmed by scissor hole 120076 that intersected 4.4g/t gold over 44m from 77m.
- The Ikkari mineralisation remains open in all directions.

James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented “These exceptional new results from Ikkari indicate a further increase in the grade and thickness of mineralisation across a confirmed strike extent of 550m. We have filled the gap between western and eastern drilling at 80m sections, as well as increased the depth by 50m to 265m vertical. Drilling is ongoing with the aim to increase the scale of the Ikkari discovery both along strike and at depth, assays are pending for 18 more holes.”
