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 further scale 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 (figure 1), 20km of which is contained within Rupert’s contiguous land holding. Two rigs are currently active at Ikkari, targeting areas that could expand the currently identified envelope of mineralisation.

James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented “These are the best results so far from Ikkari and indicate potential for a very wide zone of gold mineralisation which, if sub-vertical, could be up to 200m horizontal width in the first complete section of the main zone, and with evidence of a higher-grade component. Ongoing drilling will attempt to further define the extent of the mineralised envelope at Ikkari which remains open in all directions with mineralisation shown to commence at surface to a vertical depth of at least 230m (the limit of current drilling).”
