Silvermines Hydroelectric project announced. 11 Jan 2016.
Old opencast mining site, ( aerial photo ) Tipperary.

From an aerial vantage point, this shows the location of the reportedly 70m deep lake to be utilised as part of the new project, with Silvermines village at top left.
SIGA Hydro's proposal is to excavate a reservoir on the higher ground to the right of this view, then drop the water through turbines near the lower water storage area to then produce electricity. Planned output is expected to be 360KW.
