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 demonstrated extension to the significant gold hosting structural zone at the recently identified Ikkari discovery. The target was identified using base of till sampling at Area 1, a 5km long highly prospective section of a regional domain-bounding structure, 20km of which is contained within Rupert’s contiguous land holding.
• Hole 120059 intersected 15.2g/t gold over 13m from 121m including 36.6g/t over 5m and including 162g/t over 1m. The hole was drilled 300m east from hole 120042 drilled previously.
• Hole 120061 intersected multiple mineralised zones, the highest grade being 4.1g/t Au over 47m from 273m including 11.9g/t over 13m and including 107g/t over 1m. The hole is 70m further east from hole 120059 and demonstrates the potential for depth extension to the mineralising system.
James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented “These latest Ikkari holes show the gold mineralising system remains broad and continuous towards the eastern end of the 500m initial base of till (BoT) anomaly. Drilling will recommence in the coming weeks to continue testing this target along with our on-going new target generation program. Further, we have begun extending the BoT sampling programme along structure towards the Saittä discovery some 5km to the east.”
