- Erris Resources said it recorded positive results from soil sampling carried out at the Abbeytown project in Ireland.

Positive results from 527 closely-spaced soil samples had defined new targets south of the Abbeytown mine.

A maximum value of 10.65ppm silver, 1,585 ppm lead and 2,530ppm zinc was returned from one soil sample near the Ox Mountains fault.

'The soil sampling programme has returned some excellent results and shows that anomalies exist well outside the area of previous surface drilling by the company at Abbeytown,' chief executive Anton du Plessis said.
