Gungnir Drills 59.6 g/t Gold at Knaften, Sweden






Gungnir Resources Inc. (TSX-V:GUG) (OTCPK:ASWRF) is pleased to announce a new, high-grade gold discovery at Knaften. Assay results include 59.6 g/t Au (1.92 opt Au) over 1.0 m (3.28 ft) within the newly discovered Lower Zone at the Knaften 300 Gold Zone.




  • New high-grade gold (59.6 g/t Au) discovery in hole KN19-06
  • Highest gold grade drilled to date on the Knaften project
  • Assays pending for three additional holes


Jari Paakki, Gungnir’s CEO, “With discovery of high-grade gold and the predictability of the Knaften 300 mineralized zones, we have now moved this target to the top of our list. We believe we have a great chance for further discoveries down-dip and to potentially find additional stacked zones at depth. We eagerly await further assays from our 2019 drill program.”


Knaften 300 Gold Zone


Knaften 300 consists of two shallow-dipping, sub-parallel arsenopyrite mineralized zones (Upper and new Lower Zone). Zones vary in core length from about 3 to 8.5 metres and now extend down-dip for close to 250 metres and are open for expansion. Intersections start just 60 metres below surface. With a working thrust-fault model, there is a possibility of additional stacked zones (mineralized thrust faults) at depth and in the western part of the Knaften property.


Results have been received for holes KN19-06 and -07 and are highlighted by high-grade gold mineralization in hole KN19-06. The high-grade gold occurs within a 4.25-metre wide Lower Zone defined by disseminated arsenopyrite and minor amounts of chalcopyrite. Assays for three more holes (KN19-08, -09 and -10) are pending. Please refer to attached drill cross-section (Map 1).


Knaften 300 Gold Zone Results (KN19-06 and -07)



Hole ID Zone From (m) To (m) Length (m) Au (g/t) Au (opt)
KN19-06 Upper 62.50 67.50 5.00 0.49  
  Lower ** 138.75 143.00 4.25 14.07 0.45
  Includes 142.00 143.00 1.00 59.60 1.92
  and 177.00 178.00 1.00 0.93  
KN19-07 Upper 70.65 78.15 7.50 1.00  
  includes 75.00 76.05 1.05 2.14  
  Lower 182.00 182.65 0.65 0.81  
  and 183.00 184.00 1.00 1.29  


** The 4.25-metre interval of 14.07 g/t Au is the weighted average (within an arsenopyrite zone) of five separate assays ranging from 0.028 to 59.6 g/t Au. Additional notes: all intersections in the above table are core lengths; true widths are not known at this time but are believed to be 80-90% of core lengths. Grams per tonne (g/t) are converted to troy ounces per tonne (opt) at a ratio 31.1035 to 1.


Rodingtrask Target


At the Rodingtrask target, five holes were completed. Holes KN19-01 to -05, all encountered variably anomalous base metals. To date, Gungnir has completed just nine holes in this large area of the property, and the Company is now in a position where it can start utilizing drill results (for metal vectors) to tighten the search area for a potential massive sulphide deposit at Rodingtrask.


Analyses and QA/QC


All samples referred to in this release were tested at ALS Laboratories in Galway, Ireland. Cutting of drill core and sample preparation was completed by ALS in Mala Sweden. A 51-element package (ultra trace level method ME-MS41) by Aqua Regia and ICP-AES/ICP-MS was employed and method Au-ICP21, a 30-gram fire assay with ICP-AES finish, was used for gold analysis. Over-limit gold (>10 g/t) employed method Au-GRAV21, a 30-gram fire assay (FA-GRAV finish). Control samples (accredited gold standards and blanks) were inserted into the sample sequence on a regular basis to monitor precision of results.


The technical information in this news release has been prepared and approved by Jari Paakki, P.Geo., CEO and a director of the Company. Mr. Paakki is a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
