Galantas is unique in that it owns Ireland's only gold mine. Its high grade open pit and processing plant is designed to produce up to 30,000 ounces of gold per year in sulphide flotation concentrate for sale to commercial smelters. Accessory silver and by-product lead are also produced. Some free gold in the ore will be recovered in a small gravity section in the plant for down-streaming into the Company's Galantas™ jewellery business. Market trials of jewellery made from certified Irish gold extracted from bulk samples of ore from the Omagh mine have produced over CDN$645,000 in jewellery sales.

The Company recently acquired additional, strategically located, surface rights and raised CDN$3.5m via a private placing.
