100% Owned and Fully Permitted Tuvatu Gold ProjectDr. Quinton Hennigh, Technical Advisor of Lion One Metals speaks about their gold deposit in the South Pacific.“Fiji is a great place to look for gold. It’s part of the Circum Pacific, there are lots of gold mines clear around the Pacific. Fiji is a fantastic place.There are nearly a million ounces in resource here and we’re standing in what could be potentially another world class deposit here. To me, it’s nothing but potential.”

Tuvatu Gold Project
- Tuvatu is the largest undeveloped gold project in Fiji and one of highest grade gold projects anywhere in the world; focused on building production of 100,000 oz. per year over ten years.
- Envisaged production based on 600 tpd CIL operation yielding recoveries of 86% with up to 40% of gold recoverable through the gravity circuit.
- Lion One holds a 200 km² exploration license package covering the entire Navilawa volcano, with the Tuvatu mining lease at its center.
- Proximal to urban infrastructure 24 km from the town of Nadi and International Airport, 35 km from the deep water port of Lautoka.
- 100% owned, fully permitted for construction, mining and processing operations with 21-year surface lease, subject to a 5% government royalty and 3% export tax.
- Porphyry to epithermal gold deposits hosted within the eroded remnants of the collapsed Navilawa volcano, with approximately 80% of known resource within 200 m of surface.
- Outcropping veins extend laterally over 1km inside the Tuvatu mining lease with anomalous gold evidenced over 6 km x 4 km inside Navilawa crater; limits on mineralization have not been defined and remain open at depth and along strike.
