Conroy, which is publicly quoted in London, has already reported good results from metallurgical tests. Today, it said that the attractiveness of its Clontibret gold project had been boosted “substantially” by better than expected metallurgical results. This means the value of gold in the mine is €70m rather than the €54m previously thought.



Gold recoveries from the flotation test were 90pc, a figure higher than assumed in an earlier project.



The metallurgical test work, which was carried out by Goldfields, also indicated a much lower sulphur content in the concentrate than assumed, something that will reduce process operating costs, Conroy said.
