Living Beside a Mine

Sponsored Content by Dalradian

Although mining is a new industry for Co. Tyrone, modern mines can be found throughout Europe – including close to home in both Ireland and Britain.

Mining exists safely alongside communities across these  islands and you don’t have to look far to find an example. Just 85 miles from Omagh is Tara Mines, located on the edge of Navan in Meath’s historic Boyne Valley, an area renowned for its tourism, agri-food and angling. The mine, which is beside a tributary of the river Boyne, has been operating safely and successfully for 40 years, and employs around 1,000 people.  Tara is Europe’s largest zinc and lead mine and although no two mines are the same, Navan’s example demonstrates that mining not only provides direct economic benefits, it also successfully co-exists with and enhances wider community life.  Thanks to the gold and silver deposit at Curraghinalt, we believe that we can replicate those opportunities and successes for our community in west Tyrone.
