This move is expected to enhance GPAC’s portfolio in the region, with exploration activities due to commence in 2024 to realise the property’s significant copper and gold porphyry potential.

Spanning 347km², the Tinga Valley Property has drill-ready, high-grade copper-gold porphyry and associated skarn exploration targets.

Historical data suggests the presence of an epithermal overprint and the potential for a substantial project scale, with multiple porphyry bodies identified within a large alteration halo measuring 2.5km by 1.5km.

This property is situated in the Papua Mobile Belt, a copper and gold district that is home to several world-class mines, including the Porgera mine operated by Barrick Gold, and the high-grade Ok Tedi mine.

Tinga CEO Martin Pawlitschek noted: “Through our work, visits to the region and via the compilation of a substantial amount of historic data, we have demonstrated the Tinga Valley Property has the potential to host both large size and high-grade deposits.

“The targets identified are modelled after Tier 1 geological analogues such as the OK Tedi Copper Gold Mine.”
