Rupert Resources Reports Drilling Results From Ikkari and Heinä South


Article content

TORONTO — Rupert Resources Ltd (“Rupert” or the “Company”), a company advancing the multi-million-ounce Ikkari gold deposit and new regional discoveries at the company’s 100% owned Rupert Lapland Project in Northern Finland, is pleased to announce significant new drilling from its Ikkari and Heinä South Discoveries.

Highlights

Infill drilling further continues to define high-grade gold sections within the footprint of September 2021’s maiden resource estimate:

  • #121169 returned 110m of 5.1g/t Au from 185m (140m vertical)
  • #121164 returned 20m of 4.5g/t Au, from 309m (257m vertical) and 37m of 3.4g/t Au from 343m and a high-grade interval of 5m of 21.3g/t Au from 402m (300m vertical)
  • #122015 returned 154m of 3.1g/t Au, from 100m (75m vertical)

Further results of the western part of the deposit also add broad zones of mineralisation:

  • #121171 returned 163.3m of 3.6g/t Au from 18.7m (base of till surface contact)
  • #122066 returned 175m of 2.1g/t Au, from 74m and 36m of 2.6g/t Au from 331m
  • #122008 returned 84.6m of 1.4g/t Au from 38.4m, and 0.6m of 465.3g/t Au at surface (under till cover)

New drilling at Heinä South, 1km northwest of Ikkari, has yielded further bonanza gold veins (quartz-carbonate) with intercepts including:

  • #122043 returned 1m of 378g/t Au from 190m
  • #122038 returned 7m of 2.4g/t Au from 99m and 1m of 213g/t Au from 213m

Ikkari has a National Instrument 43-101 inferred mineral resource estimate of 49 million tonnes (“Mt”) at 2.5 grams per tonne gold (“g/t Au”) for 3.95 million ounces (see Sept. 13, 2021 press release) 1. Approximately 80,000 metres (“m”) of drilling is planned for 2022; 60% focused on upgrading and expanding the Ikkari resource estimate, with the remainder allocated to regional exploration.

James Withall, CEO of Rupert Resources commented, “We have now infilled the upper 300m of the Ikkari deposit which has confirmed exceptional continuity and grade to surface. Further results from Heinä South indicate that a significant scale mineralising system exists in the broader Area 1 exploration target where the average drill depth remains only 250m vertical with 79% of all holes yielding results in excess of our 0.6g/t Au cut-off grade. The team will be following up existing, and testing a number of new targets in the months ahead.”

New Ikkari drill results

Results from a further 18 primarily infill holes (figures 1 and 2) continue to define high-grade mineralised zones within the Ikkari orebody.

Further high-grade results include, in the central section, #121169 which returned 110m of 5.1g/t Au from 185m (140m vertical), and includes multiple >10g/t Au assays such as 5m of 11.9g/t Au and 6m of 16.6g/t Au. On the adjacent section, hole 121164 intersected three mineralised zones (20m of 4.5g/t Au, from 309m (257m vertical) and 37m of 3.4g/t Au from 343m and a high-grade interval of 5m of 21.3g/t Au from 402m) which extend to depth in the central part of the deposit. The highest grade intercept in this hole is at 335m vertical depth, with mineralisation extending to over 450m vertical depth. Towards the west, hole 122015 returned 154m of 3.1g/t Au, from 100m (75m vertical) infilling near-surface parts of the deposit.

Each of these holes further define high-grade mineralisation in the main part of the deposit and demonstrate the effectiveness of infill drilling for improving resource confidence and the potential for growing the resource with this increased geological understanding.

In the western part of the deposit, broad mineralised intercepts have continued to be defined from surface in holes 121171 (163.3m of 3.6g/t Au from 18.7m) and hole 121166, which follows this mineralised zone deeper with 175m of 2.1g/t Au, from 74m (60m vertical) and 36m of 2.6g/t Au from 331m. Eighty meters further west from this section, hole 122008 returned 84.6m of 1.4g/t Au from 38.4m, and 0.6m of 465.3g/t Au from surface.

Elsewhere in the deposit, #121167 returned 25m of 4.4g/t Au from the eastern part. Holes 122001 and 122002 were drilled as hydrogeological test holes and were not located for targeted infill drilling.

New results in bold

We are refining our geological interpretation of the deposit in readiness for the deeper extension holes we plan to drill later in Q1, as we consolidate and build resources to include in our preliminary economic assessment that we plan to deliver in Q3 2022.

New Heinä South drill results

Further drilling along a 1km long mineralised trend has confirmed pyrite-hosted gold mineralisation focused at lithological contacts (sediments and mafic intrusives) that bound an extensive fault zone, characterised by extensive quartz-carbonate breccias. Zones of intense sulphidisation contain better grades, such as #122040 – 8m of 1.2g/t Au and 2m of 6.2g/t Au and 12m of 1.9g/t Au. Also in the mineralised trend are very high-grade quartz-carbonate veins that contain visible gold up to 1m of 378g/t Au (#122043, figure 5).

Geological interpretation of Ikkari

Ikkari was discovered using systematic regional exploration that initially focused on geochemical sampling of the bedrock/till interface through glacial till deposits of 5m to 40m thickness. No outcrop is present, and topography is dominated by low-lying swamp areas.

The Ikkari deposit occurs within rocks that have been regionally mapped as 2.05-2.15 billion years (“Ga”) old Savukoski group greenschist-metamorphosed mafic-ultramafic volcanic rocks, part of the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (“CLGB”). Gold mineralisation is largely confined to the structurally modified unconformity at a significant domain boundary. Younger sedimentary lithologies are complexly interleaved, with intensely altered ultramafic rocks, and the mineralized zone is bounded to the north by a steeply N-dipping cataclastic zone. In general, alteration and structure appear to be sub-vertical, with lithologies generally dipping ~70 degrees north.

The main mineralized zone is strongly altered and characterised by intense veining and foliation that frequently overprint original textures. An early phase of finely laminated, grey ankerite/dolomite veins is overprinted by stockwork-like irregular siderite ± quartz ± chlorite ± sulphide veins. These vein arrays are often deformed with shear-related boudinage and in situ brecciation. Magnetite and/or haematite are common, in association with pyrite. Hydrothermal alteration commonly comprises quartz-dolomite-chlorite-magnetite (±haematite). Gold is hosted by disseminated and vein-related pyrite. Multi-phase breccias are well developed within the mineralised zone, with early silicified cataclastic phases overprinted by late, carbonate- iron-oxide- rich, hydrothermal breccias which display a subvertical control. All breccias frequently host disseminated pyrite, and are often associated with bonanza gold grades, particularly where magnetite or haematite is prevalent. In the sedimentary lithologies, albite alteration is intense and pervasive, with pyrite-magnetite (± gold) hosted in veinlets in brittle fracture zones.

Geological interpretation of Heinä South

Mineralisation at the Heinä South prospect is covered with up to 10m of transported glacial till with restricted access in winter due to low lying wet ground conditions. Gold mineralisation is associated with multi-phase pyrite within quartz-pyrite and massive pyrite veins and lenses, as part of a stockwork of quartz-carbonate veins. Zones of massive pyrite contain the highest grades (up to 10 – 40g/t Au) with disseminated sulphide zone containing anomalous (<0.5g/t) gold. Early quartz-carbonate veins are overprinted by extensional veins that include coarse-grained pyrite and form sub-parallel trends, broadly related to lithological contacts between sediments and mafic-intermediate intrusives, although mineralisation also occurs within both lithologies.

About the Rupert Lapland Project

The Rupert Lapland Project is located in the epicentre of the Central Lapland Greenstone Belt, Northern Finland, where the company has made six new discoveries including the high quality Ikkari Project with an inferred mineral resource estimate of 49Mt at 2.5 g/t gold for 3.95 million ounces1. The Rupert Lapland Project also holds the permitted Pahtavaara mine and mill (on active care & maintenance) within a regional land package of some 735km2. The Company acquired the project for USD2.5m in 2016 and is undertaking exploration both at the existing mine and across the region to demonstrate the potential for significant economic mineralisation. The Ikkari deposit and five other discoveries are located in a structural corridor that lies between the Kittilä Group allochthon to the north and the younger Kumpu Group basin to the south. The mineralised area is dominated by large E-W to ENE trending faults which have controlled broad to isoclinal folding within the sediment-dominated (Savukoski Group) rock package. A complex network of cross cutting structures has focused multi-stage fluid flow, with gold mineralisation associated with massive to fine-grained disseminated sulphides and concentrated at favourable structural intersections.

1 National Instrument 43-101 inferred mineral resource estimate (“MRE”) for Ikkari of 49 million tonnes (“Mt”) at 2.5 grams per tonne gold (“g/t Au”), for 3.95 million ounces (“oz”) in total (see the technical report entitled “NI 43-101 Technical Report: Ikkari Project, Finland” with an effective date of September 13, 2021 prepared by Brian Wolfe, Principal Consultant, International Resource Solutions Pty Ltd., an independent qualified person under NI 43-101: the “Ikkari Technical Report”).

The MRE has been estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”) “Estimation of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves Best Practice Guidelines”. It was calculated using the multiple indicator kriging method (MIK) and is classified as an inferred mineral resource as defined by the CIM. Numbers are affected by rounding. The MRE was reported using cut-offs of 0.6g/t Au for mineralisation potentially mineable by open pit methods and 1.2g/t Au for that portion that is potentially extractable by underground methods. The cut-offs were based on a gold price of US$1430/oz Au, with a 92% overall recovery and costs derived from benchmarks and first principles (see: the Ikkari Technical Report). Mineral Resources do not include Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that any part of the Mineral Resources will be converted to Mineral Reserves.
