RAMA CREEK COPPER PROSPECT
Access road construction into the Rama Creek Cu-Au Porphyry is progressing. Upon completion the Rama Creek road will provide reliable and cost effective access for the advancement of this key asset. In addition, the Company is currently interpreting the results of an additional 60 surface rock and trench samples submitted for Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Terraspec spectral analysis designed to further define the proximal sericite and core zone potassic altered porphyry intrusive rocks at Rama Creek, and apparent highly potassium altered lithologies at the Liwa Creek epithermal gold prospect (see the Company's May 17, 2018, News Release).
LIWA CREEK GOLD PROSPECT
Thunderstruck crews recently commenced exploration at Liwa Creek. Fieldwork recently completed has included detailed geologic mapping designed to refine potential diamond drill targets at the Liwa Ridge, Jensen's and Gun gold zones; and collection of an additional 140 ridge-and-spur auger soil samples is underway (see the Company's February 13, 2018, News Release).
NAKORO and WAINALEKA ZINC/COPPER PROSPECTS
During early July 2018, the Company conducted a logistical and geological reconnaissance of its high-grade Wainaleka and Nakoro Zn-Cu Volcanic-Hosted Massive Sulphide (VHMS) prospects, where prior drilling by Anglo American returned average grades of 8% Zn, 2% Cu and 11.6% Zn, 0.64% Cu respectively. Discovery outcrops at both prospects were examined, and the locations of historic drill collars were scouted and recorded in an effort to improve our existing 3D geological model.
Towards advancement of the Company's Zn-Cu massive sulphide assets; J. Bruce Gemmell, Ph.D. (Gemmell Geoscience), was commissioned to conduct a review of the Wainaleka and Nakoro prospects. Dr. Gemmell is past Director of the world leading ARC Centre for Excellence in Ore Deposits (CODES) at the University of Tasmania from 2014-2017, and is a recognized expert with respect to VHMS deposits.
Key conclusions from the Gemmell Geoscience report regarding the Company's Wainaleka and Nakoro VHMS prospects included:
The significantly underexplored nature of the Wainaleka and Nakoro prospects,
Presence of numerous poly-metallic lens/sheet, sub-seafloor replacement-type VHMS prospects with a high likelihood of further discovery,
Recognition that the Wainaleka and Nakoro prospects are of the sub-seafloor, replacement-style, which expands the exploration space within Wainimala Group volcanic host rocks.
Sub-seafloor replacement-style VHMS deposits often occur in particular strata, but not always in the same position, hence, there is increase discovery space and opportunity.
Thunderstruck will continue to advance all four assets over the coming months, and will provide corporate and exploration updates as assays are completed. Concurrently, the Company is engaged in active discussions with potential joint venture parties.
