Tellus involves two types of surveying – airborne geophysical surveying using a low-flying aircraft and ground-based geochemical surveying of soil, stream water and stream sediment.
Surveying activities for 2018 consist of airborne surveys in counties Limerick, north Tipperary and in West Cork.
The airborne survey commenced in early August 2018 and it will continue to operate through winter 2018.
The airborne survey blocks are outlined below:
