INITIAL TESTS SUGGEST THERE REALLY COULD BE GOLD IN DONEGAL HILLS

first_imgThere really could be gold in the hills of Donegal after all!There could be plenty of gold in the hills of Inishowen.Irish exploration company Connemara Mining has identified a target area for more detailed investigations after finding material with gold values in Inishowen.The firm said that it has finished the first phase of prospecting on its newly acquired Inishowen block. The company said that quartz vein material with gold values in excess of 15 grams per tonne have been traced to a possible nearby source area.Follow up work will now include a soil sampling programme to further refine the target and will be followed by an initial trenching programme and a later drilling programme, if justified.Chairman John Teeling said: “This is an exciting time for Connemara, and Irish minerals exploration. The Ulster gold play was unlocked with previous discoveries in Tyrone and Monaghan.“We believe that this geology extends from Donegal into central Scotland. It is early days but initial results seem to confirm our working model.” INITIAL TESTS SUGGEST THERE REALLY COULD BE GOLD IN DONEGAL HILLS was last modified: June 26th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Coneemara MiningdonegalGoldInishowenlast_img
