Exploration company reports 'significant' gold results in Wicklow

IMC Exploration Group has today announced "significant" gold results from its Wexford licence area.

This follows on from positive test results in December showing some of the highest recorded gold grades ever found in Ireland.

These additional assay results are from follow up sampling on the company’s Wexford licence PL 2551.

Following the recent announcement from Drillhole 12-2551-04 in Wexford where a core interval from 11.50 to 13.00m has yielded 354g/t gold (=11.38oz/t gold), three distinct gold zones, two at shallow depths and a third at a deeper level, have now been identified in this drillhole.

Dr Glenn Millar, Managing Director of IMC Exploration, commented: "The Board of IMC is very encouraged by these additional significant results from PL Area 2551 and is presently engaged in the next phase of follow-up drilling.

"IMC has made remarkable progress over the last number of months and is convinced that this further drilling will comprehensively define this valuable gold resource."
