Big picture - Why invest in Connemara Mining
Connemara Mining Snapshot
Connemara Mining Company Plc (CON:L) is an active explorer that is creating shareholder value by exploring for gold and zinc in Ireland. The company has interests in 47 prospecting licenses in some of the most prospective ground in Ireland, including two 100% held gold projects and two joint ventures in zinc projects, one with Teck and another with Group Eleven Resources.
Ireland is one of the most prospective countries in the world for zinc and lead (as well as Europe’s largest producer) and has a strong track record in mine development over the past 50 years. Recent developments in the development of a gold mine in Tyrone, Northern Ireland have attracted the interest of major investment. Connemara has had early drilling success across the border in neighbouring Donegal at its Inishowen gold project. Recent drilling results from the Mine River project in Wicklow/Wexford includes 4.53 g/t over 8 metres at Tombreen (including 16.1 g/t over 2 metres).
