Rupert Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce that its inaugural drill program on the permitted Pahtavaara gold mine, located in Northern Finland, will commence today as planned.
This drilling program seeks to expand reserves and resources at the mine's open pit and underground targets. Other work programs, including trenching and open pit mapping and sampling are expected to commence next week, after drilling start-up. Rupert has a six month option, ending September 15, 2016, to acquire the Pahtavaara gold mine, mill and exploration permits and concessions representing a 124 square kilometer land position (see the Corporation's March 17, 2016 and June 9, 2016 press releases).
The Corporation also announces the appointment of Gordon Chmilar as Corporate Secretary, replacing Jo-Anne Archibald who has resigned from such office. Mr. Chmilar is a partner with global law firm Gowling WLG. For over ten years, his practice has focused on corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions.
