Again from Energy Voice yesterday, good news on Scotland. They’re becoming a regular source of these for me.
According to the report, GreenOre Gold, already a big ‘gold-digger’ in North-East Scotland has acquired rights in Ayrshire too. They already have around 200 square miles under licence in the North-East. Some have suggested that the area near Towie in Aberdeenshire might contain ‘billions of pounds worth of gold.’
In partnership with Turkish company, Koza, they’re going to begin stream-sampling in Ayrshire this year then, perhaps, ‘scout drilling.’
The GreenOre Gold director says:
‘The addition of the Ayrshire licence agreement signals a commitment to develop gold prospects with real economic potential. Scotland has a vast unexplored mineral wealth waiting to be explored. ….the Scottish sites are part of the same geological “supergroup” as the massive Curraghinalt gold deposit in Northern Ireland. The Dalradian supergroup – thought to have formed more than 500million years ago – runs from Northern Ireland in a north-easterly direction up through Aberdeenshire.’
Once more, we need to be an independent nation to get the full income from this kind of thing.
