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 Ikkari discovery. The new results released here also demonstrate the significant grade potential of Ikkari, with higher grade zones developing within a broad mineralised envelope. 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. Three diamond rigs are currently active at Ikkari, targeting areas that could expand the currently identified envelope of mineralisation.

James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented “Ikkari continues to demonstrate increasingly elevated grades of gold mineralisation that persist over broad widths. Significantly, the holes reported today show that the +100m wide mineralisation already outlined in the western sections in fact also persists eastwards, and with higher grades. Drilling is ongoing with the aim of showing increased strike extent to the east and further expand the broader mineralised envelope.”
