Report on Interagency Group on the Silvermines Area of County Tipperary.

The Silvermines area has a natural geological occurrence of lead that has been released in to the environment over time both by natural processes and a long history of mining spanning over a thousand years. Although the last mine closed in 1993, years of mining activity left a legacy of open-pits, mine shafts, large waste dumps, tailings and derelict structures, much of which has now been remediated.
