Irish explorer Connemara Mining chairperson John Teeling is open to bringing in a new joint venture (JV) partner for the company’s zinc exploration projects in Limerick and Meath, claiming on Wednesday that progress is too slow in a market where zinc prices are rising fast.

Connemara has two JV agreements with Canadian major Teck Resources. One at Stonepark, a few metres away from Glencore’s Pallas Green project, and the other in the Oldcastle area straddling the border of Meath and Cavan.
