Greenland Mining Projects
Greenland is rich in all varieties of minerals from rubies to precious metals, iron and iron alloys, base metals and critical minerals such as rare earth elements, niobium and tantalum. The goal of the Government is to translate the great potentials of minerals into good jobs and revenue to develop welfare in the Greenlandic society to benefit the population. This means great opportunities for Greenland – as well as for foreign investors and buyers of minerals.
Greenland has experienced a very positive development of mineral licence interests during the last decade. Several of the exploration activities are now in an advanced stage just before the exploitation preparations. At present, one exploitation permit has been granted and more projects are getting closer to be mines.
The Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources (MIM), the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and several of the mining projects will be presented at the Greenland Day session. In addition, new aeromag data from South East Greenland will be released during the session.
