Connemara to start drilling at zinc property in Limerick this month


Connemara Mining Co PLC (AIM: CON) said drilling is scheduled to start later this month on the Connemara ground in Limerick, where Teck Resources (TSX, NYSE: TCK; formerly Teck Cominco) is operator and holds a 75 percent interest.

The focus is to develop the size of the Stonepark and Stonepark North zinc lenses and to test new anomalies on the 16 licenses, the group told shareholders at today’s AGM.

Work is continuing on the Castlemaine block where good results are being found, and extensive geophysical and geochemical work is ongoing on its other licenses.

The zinc price has recently recovered to a level that is economic for Irish projects, it added.
