The Rama Creek Prospect was discovered in 1971 following reconnaissance stream sediment sampling, geological mapping, geochemical and geophysical surveys carried out by Barringer Fiji Ltd. (Barringer). After the discovery, Barringer entered into a joint venture agreement with Australian Anglo American Ltd. (Anglo).
In 1975 Anglo drilled four vertical diamond drill holes for a total of 802m. A 250m vertical hole DDH1 intercepted a 244 metre interval averaging 0.22% Cu between 6 and 250 metres downhole, ending in mineralization; including 72 metres averaging 0.23 grams-per-tonne (g/t) Au between 6 and 72 metres1. Drill hole DDH 3 collared approximately 100m to the east of DDH 1 returned 60 metres averaging 0.098% Cu from a depth of 6 to 66 metres within pyrite-chalcopyrite mineralized volcanic rocks. Given the disseminated nature of porphyry copper-gold mineralization, the relationship between the drill intercepts and the true width of mineralization is not known.
Southern Pacific (1974-1980) carried out an aerial photographic interpretation over Rama Creek. Their fieldwork included panning of stream sediment samples that outlined an area of anomalous gold over 8km2 to the south.
Thunderstruck believes Rama Creek has the potential to host a large copper-gold porphyry system, and has acquired available historic exploration dataset for use on its current exploration programs.
