- Arkle Resources said data analysed from a airborne geophysical survey had revealed previously unknown and prospective geological features at its Stonepark zinc project.

The company said the Limerick volcanic cover rocks were shown in much clearer detail than on any previous survey, while the so-called Pallas Green Corridor and cross-fault north of Kilteely were better refined

New and prospective features, likely representing buried volcanic centres or intrusions, had also been identified in the south west of the project.

'Our partners continue to build evidence supporting new and exciting exploration targets to the south of the project along the Pallas Green Corridor,' chief executive Patrick Cullen said.

'Very few exploratory holes have been drilled through the cover rocks that lie above these targets.

' We expect further holes to be drilled in the vicinity of Kilteely, where we had exciting drilling results earlier this year.'

'The detail visible in the new data will assist with refining these decisions.'

'In addition, new features, which appear to be buried intrusives, have been identified in the south west of the project.'

'These are prospective targets.'
