Advancing the 100% owned and fully permitted Tuvatu Alkaline Gold Project
Lion One Metals is set to become the premier high-grade gold producer in the South Pacific Island nation of Fiji at its 100% owned and fully permitted Tuvatu Alkaline Gold Project. Lion One is focusing on cost-effective and environmentally responsible construction and development. They’re also focused on the advancement of Tuvatu towards production and exploration of its license areas covering the highly prospective and underexplored Navilawa mineralized volcanic complex.
Tuvatu Alkaline Gold Project
“Those who know alkaline systems really well can readily see that Tuvatu is a big system. This is the real deal.” says Technical Advisor, Dr. Quinton Hennigh.
Tuvatu is located 24 km NE of the town of Nadi on the island of Viti Levu in the Republic of Fiji. Further, the project lies between elevations of 100 and 600 m in the eroded crater of the Navilawa caldera. It overlooks the Sabeto River valley and town of Nadi on the western coast of Viti Levu.
Moreover, permanent mine site facilities at Tuvatu are accessible by a service road that connects to the Queen’s Highway.
The main mineralized zone at Tuvatu (Upper Ridges) comprises eleven principal lodes with a strike length over 600m. It also has a vertical extent of more than 300m. Another major zone of mineralization (Murau) strikes east-west and consists of two major lodes with a mapped strike length in excess of 400 m. A total of 39 different lode structures have been identified in the Tuvatu resource area. This includes 11 lodes in the Upper Ridges area, 3 lodes in the Murau area, 4 lodes in the West area, 2 lodes in the Tuvatu area and shallow dipping veins in the SKL area. Numerous additional lodes have been identified but require further testing to merit inclusion in resource estimates.
