Connemara Mining has completed follow-up drilling at the Meeneragh gold target and further sampling at new gold targets at its 100%-owned Inishowen project in Donegal.

It said that 262 metres were drilled on five drill holes as planned. 

It said a  total of 16 metres of drill core had been submitted for assay and 21 samples were collected from outcrop and boulders at four new targets.  

It said these samples were collected across six of the 11 prospecting licences. 

It said results from assays from both drilling and prospecting were expected mid-November.

Chairman John Teeling said: 'We have completed the follow-up drilling at the Meeneragh target as planned, we have intersected veins and we look forward to the assay results.  

'The information from the new drilling gives us a better understanding on the nature of mineralisation and its context in relation to geological structures observed in the area.  

'Connemara's geologists have also completed sampling at other targets across the Inishowen project identified by earlier exploration and the Tellus programme.  

'Our geologists also report that the extreme flooding that occurred in August has unearthed fresh outcrop in many areas which they intend to follow up with a mini-drilling programme.  

'Connemara is the first company to complete exploration drilling for gold in the Inishowen Peninsula, which lies to the west of other exciting projects in the Dalradian rocks of Northern Ireland.'
