Joint Venture Partner Receives Funding from Glencore

 

Partner on the Stonepark Zinc Project, Group Eleven Resources Corp., has received funding from Glencore Canada Corporation

Arkle Resources PLC (LON: ARK), formerly Connemara Mining Company plc, the Irish gold and zinc exploration and development company, is pleased to note the agreement between Glencore Canada Corporation ("Glencore") and our partner at the Stonepark Zinc Project, Group Eleven Resources Corp. ("Group Eleven").  Arkle holds a 23.44% stake in the project.

 

Highlights

 

-      CAD 1,008,000 has been invested by Glencore (implying an equity interest of 11.58% in Group Eleven) of which 70% of the net proceeds has been covenanted to be spent between the Stonepark Zinc Project and Group Eleven's PG West licences

 

-      Glencore's Pallas Green deposit lies adjacent to the deposit located in the north of Stonepark

 

 

Patrick Cullen, Chief Executive Officer of Arkle, commented, "As we have said in the recent interim report, there is significant interest in the Stonepark Zinc Project.  The established Resource is higher grade and lies at shallower depths than the adjacent Pallas Green deposit.

 

"The recently drilled 'Kilteely hole' intersected the outer margin of potential new Irish-Type zinc system and there is a compelling case for further deep drilling in that area.  We look forward to further updates."
