The Lismore Project area is located in the southern sector of the Irish Zn-Pb orefield, covering approx. 20,000 hectares.
Significant mineralization intersected in shallow drilling at Garycloyne & Ballinanchor on the block by previous operators; including 39.3 m @1.76% Zn) by previous operators.
Mineralized breccias and associated dolomitization similar to those seen at Lisheen and Silvermines suggestive of being peripheral to a Lisheen-type deposit. (ore associated alteration at the Rathdowney Trend deposits)
Detailed soil sampling delineated strong zinc anomalies along northern and southern limbs of the syncline.
Adventus believe that considerable untested potential remains north & east of these two areas of drilling and in the poorly explored eastern half of the syncline.
Garrycloyne & Ballinachor Mineralization
Detailed soil sampling delineated strong zinc anomalies on the northern and southern limbs of the Lismore syncline at Garrycloyne and Ballinachor.
Diamond drilling located low grade, breccia-hosted, zinc-rich mineralization at or close to the basal Waulsortian.
Sphalerite-bearing breccias occur as lenticular pods and indicate a mineralizing system.
Mineralization is zinc-rich and lead poor; pale brown to yellow disseminated sphalerite occurs in breccia matrix, locally replacing clast margins.
Breccia textures and associated dolomitization are features similar to those seen at Lisheen and Silvermines - the breccia mineralization at Lismore - peripheral to a Lisheen-type deposit?
The mineral occurences are suggestive of a mineralizing system with similarities to those which formed economic deposits in the Irish Midlands exist on the Lismore block.
A €288,100 Phase 1 work program in 2017 is planned, utilizing advanced geochemistry and mapping, to target a Phase 2 drill program.
