Bougainville Island is unique in the world of mining, sitting alone as an unexplored “gem” surrounded by some of the world’s largest copper and gold systems on a key portion of the “Pacific Rim of Fire”.  At one point in the early 1980s, Bougainville Island hosted the world’s largest producing copper/gold mine yet has not received any active modern exploration for 40+ years.

MCB Resources’ strategy is to build superior shareholder value by taking the sound regional geochemical and geological data published by the PNG Geological Survey in the late 1980s and building on this with modern exploration techniques and geological thinking to discover copper-gold mineralisation within one of the world’s most prospective, yet under-explored geological terranes.
