WHAT WE DO

As an exploration company our sole aim is search for mineral deposits in the ground. The information gathered during exploration is used to assess the potential size and prospectivity of a mineral deposit for further development. 

Our work involves non-invasive to low impact methods including desktop-study, soil sampling, rock sampling, geological mapping and passive geophysics. Prospecting licences permit such work with the consent of stakeholders. Prospecting licences do not permit mine development nor does the granting of one mean that a mining license will be granted in the future. Irish law and regulation protect sensitive areas. This company or any wishing to carry out exploration must submit in-depth environmental impact assessments to the authorities for independent assessment. 

For more information on the law and your rights as a stakeholder please contact the Exploration & Mining Division of Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment.
