In the light of the recent upsurge in Gold exploration, both internationally and in Ireland, the Exploration and Mining Division (EMD) and GSI have collaborated to produce the first ever digital release of data on Irish gold occurrences. The free CD_ROM has primarily been designed to provide explorationists with synoptic information on the plus 300 gold occurrences in Ireland.
The CD includes;
- Summary descriptions of the most significant occurrences (as pdfs)
- A comprehensive bibliography of Irish gold references
- A number of the most relevant articles reproduced (With permission of GSI and IAEG)
- The following GIS data-sets:
- Bedrock, float and alluvial gold occurrences,
- 1:600,000 simplified geology of Ireland,
- Prospecting Licence areas (Current as of February 2004),
- Generalised prospectivity maps for a range of potential gold plays.
- and a free GIS viewer
