Mawson Resources has reported the first channel sample results from its 100% owned Rompas gold-uranium project in northern Finland.

The assays from 39 surface channel samples include 0.3m @ 1,866 g/t Au and 8.0% U, and 0.26m @ 1,510 g/t Au and 3.95% U.

The diamond saw-cut channel samples are considered the first representative samples collected at Rompas.

Included in this batch were 10 mineralized grab samples that averaged 672g/t Au and 2.06 % U and ranged from 0.2g/t to 3,230g/t Au and 14.6ppm to >15% U.

The channels were taken over a strike distance of 75m and grab samples over an area of 65m by 125m.

To date, hundreds of gold and uranium showings have been discovered at Rompas over a surface area exceeding 6.5km in strike and 200m average width.

A total of 984 rock chip samples (including 111 highly radioactive samples) remain to be reported by the laboratory from the field program conducted this summer at Rompas.

Mawson Resources president & CEO Michael Hudson said that this first reported set of representative channel sample results are a milestone for Mawson at Rompas, as they demonstrate the repeated occurrence of bonanza grade gold developed within multiple, 10-30cm wide structures with mineralized margins.
