Operations

Connemara Mining Company holds interests in zinc/lead and gold exploration assets in Ireland. The company holds 47 Prospecting Licences as granted by the Exploration & Mining Division (EMD) covering some of the most prospective ground in Ireland. These licences are in 6 Blocks, 4 of the blocks are targeting stratiform Lead-Zinc ore-bodies and 2 blocks are targeting gold. 

Connemara's Licences

Stonepark (zinc) Six contiguous prospecting licences in County Limerick. Connemara and Teck made a significant zinc discovery at Stonepark in Limerick in 2007. The discovery is adjacent to the Glencore Pallas Green deposit containing 42 million tonnes of 8% combined zinc/lead. Two additional discoveries were made, Stonepark North and Stonepark West. A total of 135 holes have been drilled.  Group Eleven Resources (a private company with plans to list on the TSX) have recently acquired Teck’s 76.56% stake in the JV for a cash consideration of C$2.15 million and 4.5% NSR with buy-back provisions.  The average grade of the discoveries to date is in excess of 11% combined zinc/lead.  Connemara holds 23.44% of the joint venture company.

Inishowen (gold) Eleven licences on the Donegal peninsula of Inishowen.  Successive exploration campaigns have identified a series of parallel gold bearing veins in a small area.  Initial drilling intercepted 4.82 m @ 5.48g/t over 2 high grade narrow veins.

Mine River (gold) Five contiguous licences in Wexford and Wicklow.  Connemara holds an extensive gold database.  A joint venture is ongoing with Hendrick Resources, a Canadian exploration company, discussions are advancing on the future of both the Mine River joint venture and the prospecting licences held by Hendrick Resources. Drill targets have been identified following extensive sampling and geophysics. Early stage investigations have begun into the lithium pegmatite potential across the block.

Oldcastle (zinc) Five contiguous licences located in counties Cavan and Meath, with strong drilling results from earlier drilling. The geology is similar to Tara Mines 20 km away. Joint venture with Teck who are spending €1.35m for 75%.  Seismic completed.  Drilling in 2016 found traces of mineralisation.  The targets are deep and support for the model has been gained from the recent high grade deep discovery at Tara.

Derrykearn (zinc) Six licences in total, five contiguous licences in County Laois and one (PL3313) licence to the south in County Kilkenny.  The licences lie to the east and northeast of the Galmoy lead-zinc mine, and are located on the Rathdowney Trend.  Work compiling historic geochemical sampling and drilling is being completed and new drill targets are being investigated.  Discussion with other parties will begin and Connemara will consider joint venture over this block and/or drilling and other exploration activities.

Ladyswell (zinc) Two contiguous licences in West Cork, south of Clonakilty.  The licences surround the site of an historic baryte mine and numerous historic occurrences of base metals, including zinc, are recorded in the area.  Initial work will consist of mapping, sampling and assay of mineral occurrences.
