5 Company Strategy 5 Utilise our existing geological data to cost- effectively expand our mining portfolio in Ireland Refine our exploration to better understand our assets and move closer to realising asset value Utilise the management team’s considerable network and experience to identify and realise value in Ireland and abroad Enter into Joint Ventures with partners to explore and develop our mining portfolio Shareholder Value

6  Primarily used to galvanise thin sheet metal to protect against corrosion, particularly for the construction & automotive industries  Extensive use in die casting parts for a wide variety of uses including white goods and automotive  Consumption growing at 4% pa due to increasing demand from Brazil, Russia, India, and China.  Current prices are profitable for Irish zinc producers.  Sluggish supply towards the middle of the decade with the closure of several large mines. Almost 1 million tons of supply expected to be lost to the system.  Very little exploration in the last 30 years and mines are running out. Zinc Zinc in Ireland Ireland is the most prospective country in the world for zinc Ireland produces 25% of Western Europe’s zinc The Boliden/Tara mine is the largest zinc mine in Europe and 6 th largest in the world. The Vedanta mine at Lisheen is in the top 12 worldwide Over 20 international firms are exploring in Ireland Three significant discoveries have been made in the last few years: Teck/Connemara, at Stonepark in Limerick Xstrata, Limerick – bought out junior partner, Minco for $19.4m in 2011 Lundin Mining, Clare – high grade results 6

7  Fundamentals look good. Uncertainty stimulates demand  Growing uses in jewellery and electronics  Gold was mined in Ireland over 1000 years ago  In 1796 a Gold Rush in Avoca with estimated 9000oz Au extracted  Recently there has been a revival —Galantas operating a small mine near Omagh, County Tyrone —Dalradian have a 2.7m oz deposit in Tyrone, can proceed with underground development without Environmental Statement —Conroy has extensive low grade mineralisation on the border region —Significant discoveries in the Wicklow/Wexford area by 3 companies but nothing commercial to date.  The principals of Connemara have been involved in gold exploration since the 1980’s Gold 7

9 Licence Summary 9

10  Connemara has two Joint Ventures with Teck – Canada’s largest diversified resource company – Third biggest producer of zinc in the world  JV in Limerick; Teck have spent €5.7m, Connemara €1.7m. Teck control 76.2%. Connemara have the option to dilute by not subscribing  JV in Oldcastle, Teck spending €1.35 m to earn a 75% interest Joint Venture Agreements 10  Joint Venture with Hendrick Resources, a private Canadian gold company  JV exploring five licences held on Wicklow/Wexford border – 130km 2.

11  Comprises of six connecting licences in County Limerick  23.8% owned by the Company, 76.2% owned by Teck Ireland Ltd. €7.4m spent to date  Located 5km away from the Xstrata Pallas Green zinc discovery  Three significant zones of zinc mineralisation (Appendix 1 and 2) all of which remain open: – Stonepark (discovered 2007) – Stonepark North – High Grade (2009) – Stonepark West (2011)  Principal issue for Teck is whether there is 30m mineable tonnes at sufficient grade  Xstrata is completing a pre-feasibility study on Pallas Green. They need more ore.  Connemara will not participate in the 2013 budget so will own 23.5% by end of 2013  Teck focus moved to north Irish midlands Limerick Area: Teck JV: Zinc/Lead on Stonepark/Monaster 11 The Stonepark Discovery Key:

12 2012 Limerick Status 12 Untested area in Limerick Syncline – depth to target >1500m. Large hydrothermal breccia system (6x14km) with multiple zones of Zinc and Lead mineralization Hydrothermal breccias and 35% Zn+Pb over 2.0 m, remains open to the northwest – still largely untested Deep hole failed to reach top of target horizon

13 Oldcastle Block – Joint Venture with Teck: Zinc/Lead 13

14  Geologically and structurally analogous to the setting of the >100 Mt Navan deposit just 30 km to the east  Offers the prospect of large tonnage – like Tara  Consists of 5 licences covering 130 sq kms  An 11 hole drilling programme carried out by Connemara in 2008 proved up extensive low grade Zn/Pb mineralisation related to significant NE- SW striking mineralising faults at Drumlerry  Teck has completed a seismic and virtual drilling programme with targets currently being evaluated  Drilling could to commence by Q  Teck must spend €1.35 m to earn a 75% interest.

16  Five prospective licences obtained in this area which has a long gold history  Recent high grade discoveries by IMC on adjacent ground  Extensive database from previous exploration held by Connemara and others  Gold has previously been discovered at Tombreen and Knocknalour with grades of up to 18.6g/t  An airborne magnetics survey has revealed a number of hotspots  Recent soil sampling producing positive results  Detailed target follow-up to possibly to include deep overburden sampling/trenching/detailed IP  No cost to Connemara as Hendrick is spending €1m to earn a 75% interest Wicklow/Wexford: JV Hendrick Resources: Gold 16 Mine River Block

22  Licences were chosen for their proximity to the Lisheen Zinc Mine – (22.79Mt, 12.04% zinc / 2.05% lead)  And the Galmoy Mine – (9.9Mt, 12.8% zinc / 1.3% lead).  Similar host lithologies to both mines, interesting regional structural trends and relatively sparsely explored nature  Target blocks were chosen from available geological/geochemical and geophysical databases  4 drill holes completed for a total of 1200m (Red dots)  No mineralisation encountered but positive structural indicators  Licence extension obtained Thurles Block: Zinc 22 Target Blocks Thurles Block

23  Teck returned this 10 licence block to Connemara in Q  Located approx. 20km southeast of Stonepark area  14 drill holes completed totalling 3228 metres (Red stars)  Intercepts from on-trend mineralisation include: – 5.3m grading 9.6% Zn, 2.1 %Pb – 4.5m grading 12.3% Zn, 1.6% Pb  Connemara has identified 5 high potential areas on the block  5 Eastern licences surrendered in April Newcastle West Block: Zinc/Lead 23 Newcastle West Block

24 Newcastle West Block: Sole Venture: Target Areas 24

25 25 Newcastle West Block: Sole Venture: Targets Area A On the northern side of a major ENE trending linear that extends from the Kilmeedy inlier and stops against NW-SE trending gravity ridge – a possible fault offset. Much of this zone is untested by recent geochemical soil sampling, so this could also be extended. There are relatively high Zn soil values in the northern part of this area. Area B This area is on the eastern side of NW-SE trending gravity linear, with a weaker ENE linear to the south. High Pb soil values in the area. Area C This is an area of elevated Zn soil values and lies to the east of a NW-SE trending gravity linear. Area D This area lies to the east of a NW-SE trending gravity and topographical linear. There is minor brecciation in the target testing drillholes on PL1943 to the west, which would be worth lithogeochemical sampling. Area E A weak NW-SE trending magnetic linear to the west of this area, with high magnetic intrusives to the east frame this area. This is also on a NNW trending high gravity ridge and with generally high Pb*Zn values. Area F This area lies on the northern edge of a ENE trending gravity high, and generally high Cu/Pb/Zn soil values.
