Gungnir Provides Update on Exploration Work in Sweden
Surrey, BC – July 5, 2023 - Gungnir Resources Inc. (GUG: TSX-V, ASWRF: OTCPK) (“Gungnir” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on continuing exploration activities at its Lappvattnet and Hemberget properties in northern Sweden.
Lappvattnet High-Grade Nickel Project
- Drilling continues to focus on upgrading and potentially expanding the Lappvattnet high-grade nickel deposit with present drill holes targeting the eastern half of the deposit and areas below the current resource
- 1,115 metres in five holes have been drilled so far in 2023 (to date Gungnir has drilled 6,550 metres in fifty holes)
- 122 samples have been tagged for assay and will be shipped to the lab for prep work
- Highlight drill results from 2022 include: 9.0 m @ 2.35% Ni including 5.66 m @ 3.02% Ni (ddh LAP22-19, from 66 m) and 18.28 m @ 1.49% Ni including 5.76 m @ 4.04% Ni (ddh LAP22-25, from 58 m)
- Targeting potential copper-nickel sulphide mineralization associated with an 11 km-long, layered mafic (gabbro) - ultramafic intrusion (1.86 Ga)
- New conductors identified in the western part of the property from a partially completed ground electromagnetic (EM) geophysical survey (Gungnir spring 2023)
- Regional prospecting by the Company confirms outcropping and boulders of mafic intrusive rocks as well as a wide, sulphide-bearing unit which could provide ideal conditions to precipitate copper/nickel
- Copper/nickel mineralization discovered in a much smaller gabbro intrusion on nearby Knaften project (Gungnir 2017 discovery)
- Drill permits are being finalized
