The Cork Project is located 15km south-west of Cork in southern Ireland. 

The Project consists of carboniferous mudstones and limestone, and hosts the Rag Bridge zinc-lead anomaly where previous exploration has returned 1.63m grading 3.79% Zn+Pb from 17m and 1.6m grading 3.84% Zn+Pb from 120.75m.

Mineralisation at the Cork Project is associated with faults, with one target area to the east shown to coincide with interpreted fault zones. A second key target area exists to the west of the Rag Bridge anomaly in relatively under-explored terrain. 

These anomalies along with several small zones of untested geochemical anomalies provide immediate re-sampling targets.

Why Zinc?

Strong Fundamentals

  • Zinc is the LME’s best performer in 2016.

  • LME zinc stockpiles are at 12 year lows, declining for the past four years.

  • Forecast to be a large deficit for the next two years and beyond.

  • Additional 3.0 - 3.5Mt zinc needed for the next 5 years to meet forecast demand and balance current deficit.
