What type of bronze?

I'm installing a lightning ground plate and I seem to have a choice of aluminium bronze or high-leaded tin bronze. The plate will be isolated from the DC system and the only possible interaction will be with the bronze bolts. I'm not sure what alloy is typically used in the bolts and the shop I've ordered them from has no idea, they seem to think bronze is a base element.

Go with the leaded tin bronze for that application. Al Bronze is better for structural members and is IIRC more elecronegative than silicon bronze.
