The properties are located within the established Irish Zinc District and are near or adjacent to major historic mines or deposits. The Irish Zinc District has been a major source of zinc production since the 1960s and is currently home to some of Europe’s largest zinc projects including the Navan (Tara) Zinc-Lead mine (Boliden), the Pallas Green deposit (Glencore) and the past producing Lisheen mine (Vedanta) and Galmoy mine (Lundin Mining).
The district is known for carbonate hosted zinc-lead deposits, also known as Irish-type zinc deposits. The four project areas controlled by the Company all are considered highly prospective for economic Irish-type zinc lead deposits.
