Rathdowney is focused on finding and developing the next generation of zinc deposits. The current programs are directed toward advancing its flagship Olza zinc-lead-silver project in Poland. Project Olza is a 150-square kilometre property in Poland's Upper Silesian Mining District, a region of world-class Mississippi Valley-Type zinc-lead deposits. Rathdowney holds a 100% interest in Project Olza through a wholly-owned subsidiary, Rathdowney Polska.
Project Olza is an important zinc-lead-silver property with the potential to host a long-life mine. Substantial zinc-lead resources have been estimated along a trend on the Zawiercie and Rokitno concessions. This area lies within extensive deposit footprints identified from historical drilling on the property, indicating excellent potential for resource expansion. The Company has moved forward with data collecting and other studies to support permitting and advance the project's development.
Rathdowney's interests also include zinc properties in highly prospective districts located in Alaska and Ireland. Given the potential of its project portfolio, Rathdowney represents a compelling investment opportunity among a small peer-group of zinc-focused juniors. Rathdowney is associated with Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI), a diversified, global mining group with more than 25 years of mineral development success.
