Rathdowney is a zinc exploration and development company. Rathdowney is publicly traded in Canada on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol RTH.
Rathdowney's flagship project is located in the Upper Silesian Mining District of Poland, an area of world-class Mississippi Valley-Type (MVT) zinc-lead deposits. Project Olza is easily accessible by road in a region with well-developed mining infrastructure, including smelting facilities.
Rathdowney updated the estimate of the mineral resources at Project Olza in 2014, which at a 2% zinc cut-off, comprise 24.4 million tonnes in the inferred category grading 5.53% zinc and 1.49% lead (7.02% combined) containing 2.98 billion lb of zinc and 802 million lb of lead(1). As the footprint of this resource covers only a portion of the large mineralizing system on the 150 square kilometre Olza property, there is excellent potential to substantially increase the mineral resources. In addition, preliminary metallurgical testwork returned excellent recoveries of zinc, lead and silver from the mineralization at Olza.
The company's current focus is on data collection and technical studies to advance project development and permitting.
Rathdowney also includes an interest in a highly prospective property located in Alaska that presents significant potential for development.
Given the potential of its project portfolio, Rathdowney presents a compelling investment opportunity among a small peer-group of zinc-focused juniors.
