Rathdowney's main focus is its Olza zinc-lead-silver project located in the Upper Silesian Mining District of Poland. Historical drilling indicated the presence of extensive Mississippi Valley-Type zinc-lead deposits in the project-area, which has been confirmed as a result of Rathdowney's work.
Drilling programs have led to estimates of significant mineral resources at Project Olza, with excellent potential for expansion across the large property. Preliminary metallurgical testwork on Olza mineralization showed that standard flotation will result in high quality zinc and lead concentrates. Strong results from a preliminary economic assessment of a 6,000 tonnes per day underground mine and processing facility for Project Olza were announced in April 2015.
Rathdowney's current work is designed to advance project evaluation and development planning, and to support permitting as outlined for projects in Poland. Baseline environmental data collection is well-advanced and engineering studies are progressing.
