A mining company has said it is delighted with initial tests for gold in Donegal.
Arkle Resources were delayed by Covid but tests show positive results in explorations in the county.
“The Irish lockdown cost us four months. It was not possible to get on the ground. It is a tribute to the staff and field crews that they were ready to move once permissions were granted.
“Our Donegal gold sampling has produced good results. We were sampling on a tight grid along a trend where we had previously obtained some good gold grades.
“We found what we were looking for but were delighted to discover strong gold indicator mineral levels to the southwest on our licence, stretching outside of the sampling area.
“We are immediately sampling this new area to identify drill targets.”Tags:
