Tinka Resources is an exploration-development company focused on advancing its 100% owned Ayawilca project in central Peru. Ayawilca is one of the largest zinc-silver deposits in a junior mining company, and one of the best undeveloped zinc resources in the Americas. Ayawilca has significant exploration potential and has an additional tin (copper-silver) resource, open in all directions. In 2021, the Company published a PEA on the Zinc Zone, which showed that the Ayawilca deposit has the potential to become a global Top-10 zinc producer.
Tinka is well funded for its 2022 work programs, and is currently undergoing a drill program to extend the measured and indicated resources for both the Zinc Zone and the Tin Zone.
Tinka has two strategic investors, Nexa Resources and Buenaventura, both important players in the zinc and precious metals mining industry in Peru. Nexa is the largest miner and smelting company of zinc in Latin America, while Buenaventura is one of Peru's most important independent public mining companies.
