Zinc of Ireland NL announced that drilling has commenced at the Company's flagship Kildare Zinc Project with the focus being on the Allenwood Graben. The comprehensive and staged exploration diamond drilling programme is initially targeting prospective areas located outside of the currently defined mineral resources. The major basin-bounding normal fault on the eastern margin of the Allenwood Graben is the immediate focus of exploration drilling. The Company expects to drill approximately 7,500 m of diamond drilling in 2019. Drill holes have been permitted with the relevant governmental department and discussions with local stakeholders undertaken to ensure that the local community is aware of the Company's drilling plans.

Meanwhile, the Company will initially utilise one diamond drill rig, with the likely introduction of additional drill rigs to follow. The current standard operating procedure for drilling within the Allenwood Graben is to drill day shift only, with target depth generally located around 400m below surface.
