Asia Pacific Resources PTE is a Fiji company driven by technological innovation, self-reliance, and fairness to the community and nation of which we are part.

What We Do


Asia Pacific Resources (APR) is a private limited company owned by small investors, including industry professionals. We develop mineral resources and other geologically related business.

Our principal mine produces zinc, silver, gold and copper at Wainivesi, in North Tailevu Province, 65 km north of Suva.

The company's model of innovation and very low costs allows it to thrive where large, high-overhead companies cannot.


Innovation & self-reliance


Wainivesi is the most complicated ore body ever developed in Fiji. Separating out the higher-value metals from this type of ore is extremely difficult, as it is around the world.

With its ambitious R&D program, APR has developed two new processes that allow the different metals in the concentrate to be separated – a world first.

To support APR's innovation, most design, construction and analysis is performed in-house.


Community & nation


For more than 10 years, APR has made a significant contribution to the nation's economy and has helped to build a strong rural community in which people have gained higher skills and a better standard of living, and are enjoying good family life.

As production increases, the company's contribution to Fiji Government revenue will amount to tens of millions of dollars a year – helping to build schools, improve health services, and fix roads.
