Lion One Metals Ltd. is focused on the exploration and development of mineral projects in the under-explored volcanic centers of the Fijian Islands. The company's flagship property is the Tuvatu gold project, which was subject to advanced exploration, development work and feasibility studies in the late 1990s. Lion One plans to build value through leveraging upon previous investment in Tuvatu and by conducting systematic exploration of prospective areas within the rest of the 38,034 ha held under license. The company's vision is to become a low-cost gold producer while building a portfolio of quality projects in Fiji and abroad.

The Gold Report Interview with Jeb Handwerger
"Lion One Metals Ltd. came down to visit in South Florida a few weeks ago. President George Young and Vice President Hamish Greig presented its story. What impressed me so much in their presentation was the experienced management team. Lion One has the high-grade Tuvatu gold project in Fiji. There is a lot of exploration upside potential there. It's a well-funded company. It just took over Avocet Resources Ltd., which should bring more money into the bank and diversify it into uranium and iron ore. It is also going to bring in a very strong technical team that can help accelerate Tuvatu closer to production. . .the management team is very strong. Young is the founder of MAG Silver Corp. Walter Berukoff made several companies that were acquired, including Miramar Mining Corp. Lion One has $15M. The deposit shows it has the potential to rival some of the largest in the world. This is a company that's going to survive and thrive in a difficult market environment."
Brien Lundin, Gold Newsletter (Jefferson Financial)
"Lion One Metals Ltd. has reported additional drill results from its ongoing exploration campaign at Tuvatu, the company's flagship gold project in Fiji. . .these holes are confirming the grade, thickness and continuity of previously identified mineralized lodes. . .Lion One is on the trail of an elephant-sized deposit in Fiji. . .expansion potential remains very real, as does share price appreciation."
The Gold Report Interview with Eric Coffin
"Another company I follow [is] called Lion One Metals Ltd. The company has a gold project in Fiji called Tuvatu, which hosts a gold resource of about 650,000 ounces at about 6.5 g/t gold. Work by Lion One has shown the veins that host the resource are still open along strike and there are several other gold bearing structures that have not been brought into the resource. There are workings in place on much of the resource and a feasibility study from the 1990s that indicates the project should be quite profitable at current prices. The company is well funded with over $15M at Sept. 30. Lion One recently made a takeover offer for a small Aussie explorer, Avocet Resources Ltd. This deal would bring another $4M onto the balance sheet, several good-looking gold and iron ore projects in Australia and a strong technical team that could help accelerate work at Tuvatu. It looks like a smart deal."
Lawrence Roulston, Resource Opportunities
"Lion One Metals Ltd. reported further drill results from its Tuvatu gold project in Fiji that continue to extend the zone of known mineralization. . .the company has produced a compliant resource estimate that outlines a total resource (Indicated plus Inferred) of 652 Koz gold grading 5.7–7 g/t. . .the recent results suggest that number could be well exceeded. . .the Tuvatu project is very attractive as a high-grade gold deposit, with underground development already in place, in an area with good access and with a government highly supportive of mine development."
The Gold Report Interview with Brien Lundin
"Lion One Metals Ltd. is progressing with permitting and development of its Tuvatu gold project in Fiji, a project with upside potential that I don't believe is being valued by the market at all. Over $30M was spent on this project by Emperor Mines Ltd. in the late 1990s, including over 85,000m of drilling and 1,600m of underground infrastructure. All Lion One has to do is dust off and update an existing feasibility study, and get the necessary permits to get into production. It is doing that right now, and will use proceeds from Tuvatu to fund exploration of the multimillion-ounce potential of the project. Management, including legendary financier Walter Berukoff, owns about 40% of the company, so it has solid support going forward. It's a great buy at these levels."
