The efforts carried out to stop the increased water inflow to the Irish Tara mine have been successful. Work is now beginning to restore the mine, which includes pumping and mapping of any damage as a result of the water inflow.
As a result of increased water inflows to the Tara mine, production was stopped for safety reasons on 23rd November and efforts were initiated to stop the water inflow and to protect production-critical equipment. The efforts to stop the water inflow have been successful and starting today we have the water inflow under control. Several efforts are now being initiated to restore the mine to normal production. When this can happen is still uncertain as water accumulations need to be removed, and a survey of damages to the mine infrastructure must be carried out. No person has been severely injured and no impact on the external environment has been registered, however, the situation is monitored continuously.
