Minco Exploration is an exploration and development company currently engaged in base metal exploration and development in the Republic of Ireland. Minco holds base metal exploration interests in the Republic of Ireland and is pursuing exploration for zinc and lead, both in joint venture with Boliden Tara Mines near Navan and on its own licences at Moate. Minco has also entered into a new exploration agreement with Boliden Tara Mines on twelve Prospecting Licences in County Galway.

Minco operates through wholly-owned, indirect subsidiaries all of which were transferred from Buchans Resources Limited pursuant to an agreement dated as of June 29, 2019 for ordinary shares of Minco. Minco, through its subsidiaries, Minco Ireland Limited and Westland Exploration Limited, is engaged in the exploration for zinc and lead in the Irish Midlands Orefield.

Minco traces its roots in Ireland back to 1966 as Minco Ireland Limited, and from 1997 until 2017, Minco Ireland was an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Minco Plc, a public company incorporated in Ireland with its shares traded on the Alternative Investment Market (“AIM”) of the London Stock Exchange. In August 2017, as part of a transaction whereby all of the shares of Minco plc were acquired by Dalradian Resources Inc., all the remaining assets of Minco plc, except a 2% royalty on the Curraghinalt gold property in Northern Ireland, including Minco Ireland, were “spun-out” to shareholders of Minco plc via a distribution of the shares of Buchans Resources Limited.

In December 2019, Buchans Resources reorganized its mineral assets and investments by way of a plan of arrangement involving Buchans Resources, Canadian Manganese Company Inc. and Minco Exploration Limited whereby the shares of Minco Exploration Limited previously held by Buchans Resources were distributed to the shareholders of Buchans Resources, yielding a more focused company structure with Minco Exploration engaged on the Irish base metal exploration interests.
