Summary:The past 20 years have seen an increasing awareness of the mineral resource potential of Ireland, which is currently a world-ranked producer of zinc, lead and barytes. The prime source of information collation and dissemination is the national Geological Survey; the administration dealing with regulatory aspects is found in the same government department. Exploration to date has been undertaken mainly by private industry, and the relatively simple legal framework has played a significant part in stimulating exploration activity. Direct State aid is limited at present to developmental work for certain minerals, largely through the Industrial Development Authority. [J.M.H.]
