Connemara Mining Company searches for gold in Wickow and Wexford

Connemara Mining Company and Hendrick Resources Ireland (HRI) have announced that an airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey has commenced over the five license blocks of Connemara Mine River licences held in the Wicklow/Wexford area of Ireland. The principal element of the survey is to look for magnetic anomalies which can frequently be associated with gold mineralisation.

Connemara has a joint venture over these licences with HRI, which is a private Canadian company.  HRI will also survey its adjacent block of 11 licences.

The airborne operator is Terraquest Geophysics, a highly experienced international geophysical company from Ontario, Canada.

Chairman of Connemara Mining Company, John Teeling, commented: "Taking a fresh look at the gold potential in Wicklow/Wexford is long overdue. Adding the results from this sophisticated technology and fresh processing to the extensive gold data base held by Connemara offers exciting new prospects in an area long known for gold."

Connemara is a diversified exploration company, with principal assets in base metal zinc/lead exploration licenses as well as shear hosted gold targeting licenses, in Ireland. The company holds interests in 33 licenses covering an area of approximately 1,250 sq km.
