The Connemara Mining Co state it is starting further surveys in the Thurles Area. Connemara holds three licenses in the Thurles area close to the Lisheen zinc mine.
This zinc and gold exploratory mining company said it is beginning geophysical induced polarisation and resistivity surveys across previously identified structural targets in the Thurles Area.
The company state that these surveys are aimed to improve its geological model for the block, as well as sampling and analysing key intersections from its 2012 drilling programme, to identify if it can locate more prospective areas.
Significant work has been previously completed on these three licences by Connemara, including four drill holes, which did not find mineralisation but did identify positive structural indicators.
“The Thurles exploration programme is designed to better identify potential drill targets,” the Chairman Mr John Teeling stated.
