Galantas starts underground development at Ireland project
Unerground development has started at TSX-V- and Aim-listed Galantas Gold’s Omagh gold property, in Northern Ireland.
“This is an important milestone in the development of the Omagh underground gold mine. We are pressing ahead with mine development, in accordance with our planning permission,” CEO Roland Phelps said in a statement.
The initial works are for the formation of a portal in the western side wall at the base of the Kearney openpit.
When the portal works are complete, the underground development will continue to access ore beneath a crown pillar retained in the base of the openpit.
It is expected that ore zones are likely to be reached within six months.
“So far, we have boosted our local workforce to 17, including some former colleagues, who were previously laid off during planning delays,” he said.
