The company derives its name from the location of its Copper Zinc assets located in the northeastern tip of the Vanua Levu, Fiji near the International Date Line.
Since taking control of the permitted Gold Links mine in Colorado, the company has consolidated ownership of additional mining and exploration ground in the region and now owns 100% of two, permitted gold mines and two permitted mills in Colorado.
The company is reviewing its interests in Fiji with a view to identifying a JV partner that would enter a farm-in-agreement to increase the known JORC inferred resource of 4.5 million tonnes @3.9% zinc and 1.2% Copper.
