Rathdowney Resources (RTH:TSX.V) is a mineral exploration and development company focused on finding and developing the next generation of zinc deposits.
Rathdowney's operational focus is in Poland, where it has acquired a 150 square kilometre property in the Upper Silesian Mining District, an area of world-class Mississippi Valley-Type zinc-lead deposits. Rathdowney's Project Olza is an important zinc-lead-silver property with the potential to host a long-life mine. An initial estimate of substantial zinc-lead resources in the East Corridor was announced in September 2012. This area lies within extensive deposit footprints identified from historical drilling on the property, indicating excellent potential for resource expansion. The Company has moved forward with data collecting and other studies to support the permitting process in Poland and advance the project.
Rathdowney's interests also include zinc properties highly prospective districts located in Alaska and Ireland. Given the potential of its project portfolio, Rathdowney represents a compelling investment opportunity among a small peer-group of zinc-focused juniors.
Rathdowney is associated with Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI), a diversified, global mining group with more than 25 years of mineral development success.
