Vancouver – January 11, 2018 - Gungnir Resources Inc. (GUG: TSX-V, ASWRF: OTCBB) (“Gungnir” or the “Company”) has received final approval for five exploration permits in the Norrbotten District in northern Sweden. These new exploration permits complement Gungnir’s existing gold and base metal property portfolio in Sweden.
- $4,000,000 advance royalty stream; next annual $1,000,000 payment due April 30, 2018
- Knaften property: near surface gold mineralization (including 2.92 g/t Au over 13.0 metres) and new drill discovery of copper-nickel bearing sulphides
- Lappvattnet and Rormyrberget properties: 70 million lbs of nickel in historical resources
- New Norrbotten permits include reported grab samples with copper (up to 2.3 % Cu), gold (up to 7.7 g/t Au) and silver (up to 380 g/t Ag)
The Company plans a larger second phase 2018 drill program and prospecting activities and will provide more detailed exploration plans and timing once they are finalized.
Norrbotten samples noted above are historic surface grab samples of boulders/blocks and may not be representative of mineralization hosted on the permits. Assays results are from the Swedish Geological Survey (SGU) data files. The Company has not verified this data. Also, a qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates above as current resources and Gungnir is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources.
