Gungnir to Drill for Extensions of High-Grade Gold at Knaften
Surrey, BC – June 4, 2020 - Gungnir Resources Inc. (GUG: TSX-V, ASWRF: OTCPK) (“Gungnir” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling is planned to commence on June 15, 2020 at its Knaften project in Sweden. Drilling will focus on expanding the Company’s 2019 high-grade gold discovery at the Knaften 300 Gold Zone (“Knaften 300”) which includes 59.60 g/t Au over 1.0 metre within a mineralized interval grading 14.07 g/t Au over 4.25 metres.
Jari Paakki, Gungnir’s CEO, "We are very excited to re-start drilling at Knaften 300 where last year we tested a new thrust fault model and successfully hit two stacked gold zones in each of the five holes we drilled across 200 metres, including discovery of a new lower zone with high-grade gold (59.60 g/t Au). With a working structural model, this year we are taking some bigger step-outs to test for extensions of these two zones and targeting additional stacked gold zones at depth and laterally where no previous drilling has taken place.”
The Company plans to drill approximately 1,200 metres at Knaften 300. Drilling is planned to first test target areas below and northeast (down-dip) of the “Upper” and “Lower” zones then a larger step-out (approximately 1 km) to the southwest (see Figure 1).
Gold mineralization at Knaften 300 is associated with disseminated arsenopyrite zones typically ranging from about 5 to 20 metres wide (core lengths). Drilling highlights from Gungnir and previous operators include:
- 14.07 g/t Au over 4.25 m (from 138.75 to 143.00 m) in hole KN19-06
- 5.39 g/t Au over 2.00 m (from 98.00 to 100.00 m) in hole KN19-09
- 3.45 g/t Au over 10.75 m (from 67.05 to 77.80 m) in hole 96009
- 3.20 g/t Au over 10.00 m (from 83.50 to 93.50 m) in hole 200707
- 2.92 g/t Au over 13.00 m (from 81.5 to 94.50 m) in re-sample 200707
- 3.11 g/t Au over 8.00 m (from 135.80 to 143.80 m) in hole 200714
- 2.13 g/t Au over 14.45 m (from 55.00 to 69.45 m) in hole KNA01001
- 2.01 g/t Au over 6.70 m (from 190.50 to 197.20 m) in hole 200710
- 2.89 g/t Au over 5.00 m (from 118.80 to 123.80 m) in hole 200715
Drill intersections listed above are all core lengths. 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.

In certain cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "expects", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved", or the negative of these words or comparable terminology. By their very nature forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual performance of the Company to be materially different from any anticipated performance expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements or information include, but are not limited to, statements or information with respect to Gungnir’s plan for future exploration and development of its properties, Gungnir’s plan for future disclosure relating to exploration and development of its properties within the timelines set out above or at all. Forward-looking statements or information are based on a number of estimates and assumptions and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual events or results to differ from those reflected in the forward-looking statements or information. Should one or more of these risks and uncertainties materialize, or should underlying estimates and assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in forward-looking statements or information. For example, there is no certainty, that any economically viable mineral deposit will be located on the properties, that the Company will receive or be able to raise sufficient capital to complete all of its exploration programs as anticipated.
