Low Flying Aircraft

Post by Higgie »

Hi All

Please keep a look out around Clare and Limerick, I've just recieved this

Dear Sir/Madam

Aurum Exploration Services have been retained by Lundin Mining Exploration Limited to manage the logistics of two airborne geophysical surveys. The surveys are being flown to help further understand the geology of parts of Counties Limerick and Clare.

We are endeavouring to make people aware of the surveys through a series of mailshots and advertisements in the local media in order to answer queries or concerns that people within the survey area may have. In particular we wish to alert other air users such as operators of small aircrafts, microlights, paragliders or hot-air balloons before the survey so they can adjust schedules if required within the survey area.

The survey areas lie between Foynes and Newcastle West eastward to the outskirts of Limerick City and in the vicinity of Ennis, as shown on the attached maps. The survey will commence in mid-to late April (Monday – Sunday inclusive) and will continue for approximately two to three weeks.

The height of the aircraft is closely controlled and the Irish Aviation Authority has granted permission for the aircraft to fly at 80m-85m (or about six times the height of a two-storey house) in rural areas and will generally avoid any urban areas.

If you have any questions or concerns about this survey, or would like further information please contact our information line 086 241 2025, or visit our website http://www.airborne-survey.com;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; particularly if you require notification of the areas to be flown on any particular date.

Yours sincerely
