Connemara Mining Company holds interests in zinc/lead and gold exploration assets in Ireland. The company holds 35 Prospecting Licences as granted by the Exploration & Mining Division (EMD) covering some of the most prospective ground in Ireland. These licences are in 7 Blocks, 4 of the blocks are targeting stratiform Lead-Zinc ore-bodies and 3 blocks are targeting gold.
A significant zinc discovery was made in 2007 on the Connemara licences at Stonepark (Monaster Block) in Limerick. This discovery is adjacent to the large Glencore discovery at Pallas Green. This is a joint venture with Teck the second biggest zinc producer in the world. Connemara has further licenses close to the Lisheen zinc mine in Thurles and in Oldcastle with similar geology to Tara Mines 20 km away. Shear-hosted gold and Volcanogenic Massive Sulphides (VMS) potential exists on 5 licences in Wicklow/Wexford where work has been undertaken as part of a joint venture with Hendricks Resources. The recently acquired Donegal licences show similar geology to that in the Dalradian discovery in Tyrone.
