Core from three drillholes (DDH 3202/7, 3202/8 and 3202/19) is presented by Navan Resources pic and C.E.C. (Ireland) Pty Ltd. The holes were drilled in the vicinity of the Rag Bridge Zn-Pb prospect near Inishannon (Fig. 1). Drillhole 3202/19 shows details of the Carboniferous stratigraphy in the Inishannon area of the South Munster Basin, and drillholes 3202/7 and 3202/8 show examples of the styles of mineralization encountered at Rag Bridge.

Irish Carbonate-Hosted Zn-Pb Deposits
This paper describes the stratigraphy, basin evolution, and structural geology of Ireland so that the hydrothermal processes which formed the deposits can be placed in a geological context. Informal regional nomenclature are used throughout this paper to provide a clearer overview, rather than the myriad of existing local formation names (see Jones and Earls, this volume). The stratigraphy, together with series and stage designation and available radiometric ages, is presented in Figure 1.
