Geology

The Fluorite Mineralisation is contained
within a series of near vertical veins
hosted in limestone from the
carboniferous period.


The hydrothermal mineral enriched veins are
formed in the cracks and fissures within the
limestone fault systems.
The East –West trending Fluorite veins extend
from the base of the overlying shale to the
underlying volcanics.

The mineralogy of the veins is predominantly
Fluorite, Baryte and Galena together with
Calcite and Silica which can be used as a
construction aggregate.
