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 results reported extend the strike length at Ikkari to at least 650m with mineralisation now believed to extend to a vertical depth of at least 400m (a 50% increase on the previous deepest intercept of 274m). Further to this, more results from the central section of the Ikkari discovery continue to demonstrate both the high-grade potential and broad widths of mineralisation.

James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented “These new results from our initial step-out drilling to the east show that the true extent of the Ikkari mineralising system is yet to be defined. Drill holes on three separate traverses have successfully intersected mineralisation over significant widths, up to 160m away from previously reported results and at depths previously untested. The strike at Ikkari has been increased by almost 50% since the first step-out holes were drilled in June with weighted average grade of the intercepts almost 25% higher. Figure 2 in this release shows how dramatically the discovery has evolved in just the first 6 months of drilling. We are now drilling potential depth extensions at Ikkari from the north and will report this along with results from the regional targeting program as assays become available.”
