The field visit to the Galmoy zinc-lead orebodies will consist of an introductory talk at the ARCON International Resources P.l.c. (ARCON) office, a tour of the area and a view of drill core. The drill core will show the stratigraphic setting of the orebodies and mineralization from the CW and G orebodies and from the K zone. The stratigraphic units, the different dolomite styles, the ore mineralogy and the ore textures will be demonstrated.
The field guide is a brief introduction to the geology and mineralization of the Galmoy are-a covering the location, and regional geological setting, stratigraphy, structure, ore bodies and mineralogy.

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.
