Arctic Minerals finds more copper-rich samples at Peräpohja copper project

Arctic Minerals is pleased to announce that it has found more copper-rich samples at its Peräpohja copper project in southern Finnish Lapland. Some of the samples also showed significant contents of gold, silver and lead. In addition, planning activities to commence diamond drilling at selected areas in Peräpohja are also under way. The Peräpohja copper project is the subject of an earn-in and joint venture agreement with the Rio Tinto group, one of the world's largest mining companies (see Press Release of 21 January 2020).

One boulder sample contained 7.7% copper, the highest copper content so far found by the company in Peräpohja; this sample also contained 0.9 grams per ton gold and 89 grams per ton silver. Other sampling results include (i) a boulder containing 2.9% copper, 0.1% lead and 0.15% zinc and (ii) a boulder with 0.42% copper, 42 grams per ton silver, 0.16 grams per ton gold and 6.5%.

These latest results follow Arctic Minerals' previously reported findings of numerous copper-rich outcrops and boulders in Peräpohja (see Press Release of 26 August 2020).

Comment from CEO, Jonatan Forsberg:

We are very pleased with these latest results, which demonstrate the progress which we and our partner, Rio Tinto, are making at the Peräpohja copper project.

It is very encouraging that the latest sampling work continues to build on the excellent results received from the sampling programs in 2018 and 2019. In addition to the latest sample findings, planning activities to commence diamond drilling at selected areas in Peräpohja are also under way.

Fieldwork in 2018 found copper in a number of locations, together with lesser amounts of silver and gold. Samples from both bedrock and boulders contained significant grades of copper, gold and silver. The best of the boulders found in 2018 contained 5.25% copper, 0.4 gram gold per ton and 12 grams silver per ton.

Fieldwork in 2019 found more copper-bearing boulders and outcrops, as well as significant lead concentrations (up to 2.8%) in certain areas. In one case the presence of lead was associated with significant contents of copper, gold and silver, with one sample assaying 2.4% lead, 1.2 grams gold per ton, 265 grams silver per ton and 0.5% copper.

The geology of the Peräpohja Schist Belt of southern Finnish Lapland has many similarities to that of the Central African Copper Belt (CACB), one of the world's main sources of copper and also a major source of cobalt. Arctic Minerals' and Rio Tinto's main exploration target in Peräpohja is a type of mineralisation called "SSC" (Sediment-hosted Stratiform Copper), typical of that found in the CACB. Arctic Minerals has been exploring for copper in Peräpohja since 2017 and has found widespread copper mineralisation in both outcrops and boulders.

Arctic Minerals har beviljats förlängda utvinningsrätter för Bolagets guld-kopparprojekt Bidjovagge i Norge

Arctic Minerals har beviljats förlängda utvinningsrätter (i Sverige "bearbetningskoncession") för Bolagets guld-kopparprojekt Bidjovagge i Norge. Bolaget har även tidigare i år beviljats sex nya undersökningstillstånd i området. Arctic Minerals genomgång av geofysiska data, tillsammans med data från gamla borrkärnor, indikerar att den malmbärande zonen i Bidjovagge fortsätter norr om det gamla gruvområdet. Malmzonen verkar också vara öppen mot djupet. Externa konsulter har anlitats för att uppdatera projektets mineraltillgång. Arctic Minerals har också inlett processen att söka en partner för att vidareutveckla Bidjovaggeprojektet.


Arctic Minerals has been granted prolongation of extraction permits for the Company's gold-copper project Bidjovagge in Norway

Arctic Minerals has been granted prolongation of extraction permits for the Company's gold-copper project Bidjovagge in Norway. The Company has also,previously this year, been granted six new exploration permits in the area. Arctic Mineral's recent review of geophysical data, together with data from old drill holes, strongly indicates that the ore-bearing zone continues to the north of the old mine area. The ore zone also appears open at depth. External consultants have been engaged to update the project's mineral resource. Arctic Minerals has also initiated a process to seek a partner to further develop the Bidjovagge project.

Arctic Minerals har avtalat om prospekteringsborrning vid batterimetallprojektet Kiiminki i Finland

Arctic Minerals har ansökt om ett nytt malmletningstillstånd på 45 km2 i Kiiminki i Finland. Tillståndet möjliggör, när det beviljats, mer avancerad prospektering i området. För sommaren 2021 har Arctic Minerals nu tecknat avtal med en entreprenör om att genomföra prospekteringsborrning med lätt borrigg för djupmoränprovtagning (Base-of-Till) i Kiiminki. Under sommaren 2021 kommer Bolaget även att genomföra geofysiska undersökningar samt ytterligare geologiskt fältarbete i Kiiminki. Målet med pågående arbete är att identifiera målområden där diamantborrning kan utföras under vintern 2021/2022.


Arctic Minerals has signed a contractor for Base-of-Till drilling at the battery metals project Kiiminki in Finland

Arctic Minerals has applied for a new exploration permit of 45 km2 in Kiiminki in Finland. The permit, once granted, will allow for more advanced exploration work. For the summer 2021, Arctic Minerals has signed a contractor to carry out Base-of-Till drilling in Kiiminki with a light drill rig in order to carry out deeper sampling. Additional work for the summer 2021 includes ground geophysics as well as further geological fieldwork. The Company's aim is thus to identify targets for diamond drilling to be carried out during the winter 2021/2022.


Arctic Minerals har genomfört kärnborrning i Joint Venture-kopparprojektet med Rio Tinto

Arctic Minerals har genomfört kärnborrning vid Peräpohjas Joint Venture-kopparprojekt i Finland. Kärnborrning har genomförts i tre målområden och resulterat i värdefull information för att prioritera målområden och utveckla en geologisk modell i mer detaljerad skala. I planerna för 2021 ingår nu borrning med en lätt borrigg för att provta de djupaste delarna av moränen (Base-of-Till), vidare undersökning och provtagning av borrkärnor samt ytterligare geologiskt fältarbete. Ytterligare kärnborrning kan också komma att utföras. Bolaget har för projektet ansökt om totalt 13 nya malmletningstillstånd täckande 487 km2.


Arctic Minerals has carried out diamond drilling in the Peräpohja copper Joint Venture project with Rio Tinto

Arctic Minerals has carried out deep diamond drilling at its Peräpohja copper Joint Venture project in Finland. The drilling program has been carried out at three different targets and resulted in valuable information for the prioritization of target areas and for a target scale 3D geological model. Further plans for 2021 include drilling with a light drill rig in order to carry out deeper sampling of Base-of-Till, additional logging and sampling of archive core and also additional geological fieldwork. Further deep diamond drilling may also be carried out. The Company has applied for in total 13 new exploration permits totalling 487 km2 in the Peräpohja copper project.


Positiva resultat från guldprojektet Nutukka i Finland och fortsatt prospektering med lätt borrigg

Nya resultat från provtagningen bekräftar ett kluster av guldbärande jordprov, troligen av lokalt ursprung. Baserat på de positiva resultaten från prospekteringen2020 har Arctic Minerals ansökt om malmletningstillstånd i Nutukka, där klusterområdet ingår. Bolaget planerar nu att genomföra undersökningsborrning med lätt borrigg under sommarfältsäsongen 2021, med målet att provta de djupaste delarna av bottenmoränen och av bergytan. Även magnetiska mätningar med hjälp av drönare planeras. Fortsatt prospektering kan också komma att omfatta undersökningsdikning med grävare liksom än mer moränprovtagning.


Positive sampling results from the Nutukka gold project in Finland and further exploration with a light drill rig

New sampling results confirm cluster of gold-bearing soil samples likely to be of local origin. Following the overall positive results from the exploration in 2020, the Company has applied for an exploration permit at Nutukka, including the cluster areas. The Company now plans for drilling with a light drill rig during the 2021 summer field season in order to carry out deeper sampling of base of till and top of bedrock. Also planned is a magnetic survey to be carried out by drone. Further exploration work may also include trenching with use of an excavator, as well as further soil sampling.
