Thunderstruck Resources Ltd. (TSXV:AWE,OTC:THURF) CEO Bryce Bradley was recently featured in an article published by the Fiji Sun following a site visit of the company’s two high-grade zinc-copper exploration assets on the island nation. During the site visit, Bradley and the company’s head geologist, Kris Raffle, toured the Wainaleka and Nakoro properties with geologists from Japan.

The Wainaleka project has shown historical results from when Anglo-American conducted drilling of eight percent zinc and two percent copper. Exploration work on the property has shown that zinc and copper both sit at surface, which would allow for low-cost mining through an open pit. At Nakoro, historical values include averages of 11.6 percent zinc and 0.64 percent copper. The geology at Nakoro is expected to be more complex than at its sister project. Alongside the Wainaleka and Nakoro projects, Thunderstruck is also developing the Liwa Creek gold deposit, which sits nearby the other two properties.

Following the site visit, Bradley and her guests also partook in a ceremony with the local Vunimoli tribe, where she was able to develop relationships with people who previously worked in mines on the properties. “I explained to the Chief that we could not find the location of the drilling sites, nor the camp from when Anglo American had completed their drilling cam­paign in 1978,” she said. “The chief said that he had worked with Anglo at that time and would show us the location of the camp, drilling site, and even the core left from the drilling.” Once weather permits, this expedition will take place.

Thunderstruck is currently exploring joint ventures opportunities to continue expanding these deposits through drilling and turn them into a sizeable resource with the right economics for production. “Large mining companies in search of zinc and copper, like the Japanese company, send their ge­ologists to study the minerals, coun­try and culture in order to assess whether they would like to make the significant investment necessary to explore these types of mineral-rich assets,” said Bradley.
