Gungnir Samples 4.64% Nickel Over 0.65 metres at Lappvattnet

SURREY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 08, 2020 / Gungnir Resources Inc. (TSXV:GUG)(OTC PINK:ASWRF) ("Gungnir" or the "Company") reports up to 4.64% Ni over 0.65 metres at its Lappvattnet property in Sweden. Results are from re-sampling of archived drill core at the Lappvattnet nickel deposit.

Jari Paakki, CEO of Gungnir comments, "We continue to work on evaluating our nickel projects while actively and currently drilling gold targets at our Knaften project in Sweden. Results reported today are from re-sampling of 1970's archived drill core from Lappvattnet as part of our plan to log and validate historic core. Although a good portion of the 45-year-old drill core has been scavenged, still its availability at the Swedish Geological Survey core archives (indoor) along with three complete core sections from 2007 drilling, which we sampled earlier (see NR dated March 30, 2020), provides us with a cost-effective way to confirm significant nickel mineralization and increase our understanding of the deposit. Our next planned step is to update the historic resource at Lappvattnet."

Along with Lappvattnet, the Company holds the Rormyrberget nickel deposit located in the same general area. The two deposits collectively contain over 70 million pounds (Mlbs) nickel, 10 Mlbs of copper and 2 Mlbs of cobalt in historic resources. At Lappvattnet, the historical estimate is 1,139,000 tonnes @ 0.91% Ni, 0.19% Cu and 0.02% Co for 22.9 Mlbs of Ni, 4.8 Mlbs of Cu and 0.5 Mlbs of Co (see Note 1).

* PGE's g/t = platinum (Pt) + palladium (Pd) + gold (Au)

Re-sampling on a metre by metre comparison basis could not be undertaken, especially in the most massive sulphide sections, since many of the 1970's holes had only a section or two of core available for sampling. In some of the intervals reported above, several, half-decimetre to decimetre sections of core were missing; these missing intervals were assigned a value of 0.00 % Ni and 0.00 g/t PGE's. Incomplete core sections contribute to narrower intervals and lower nickel grades, and also any PGE-rich section, if any, may have been lost. Gungnir's earlier re-sampling of Lappvattnet core returned up to 50.91 g/t PGE's (39.0 g/t platinum, 11.8 g/t palladium, 0.11 g/t gold) and 2.13% nickel over 0.45 metres (see NR dated March 30, 2020).

Sampled drill core is archived at the SGU (Swedish Geological Survey) core facility in Mala Sweden. Drill core samples represent one-quarter drill core which was halved by sawing already split drill core. Core was logged and tagged for sampling at the core facility, then brought to ALS Minerals' Core Services Laboratory also in Mala. Core was sawed on site by ALS staff and sample material was sent to ALS's Lab in Ireland. Ni was analyzed using fire assay method Ni-OG46 and Pt, Pd, and Au were analyzed using fire assay method PGM-ICP27. Sample lengths reported in the above table are core lengths.
