From new jobs to environmental stewardship and community investments, we are creating a wealth of opportunities for Tyrone and helping to build a new, industry for Northern Ireland.

Dalradian believes in supporting and contributing to the communities near our mine. That’s where our people live and work, so it’s only natural that we want to help contribute to a better future and to create benefits that last beyond our exploration and mining activities. We want to leave the local area better off than it was before our arrival. We want to build strong ties to our communities, to take part in supporting local initiatives and to give our neighbours opportunities to get to know us.
