Eclipse Metals Limited (ASX:EPM) shared a critical update following Executive Chairman Carl Popal’s site visit to the multi-commodity project in Greenland and his presence at the Future Greenland 2022 conference.

Ahead of the 2022 field season, Mr Popal visited the Ivittuut and Grønnedal-Ika projects. The 2022 field season would include a drilling program at the Grønnedal-Ika carbonatite REE prospect.

This assessment of ground conditions will facilitate the planning of access and drillhole location. The Company has engaged a Greenland-based drilling contractor to undertake the proposed drilling, which is awaiting approval following an application to Greenland’s Mineral Resources Authority last month.

“We took the drillers onsite and discussed the mobilisation of appropriate equipment, with the drilling team potentially able to mobilise in July 2022. We were also able to locate several historical drill collars which will assist in planning the Company’s drilling program,” Mr Popal said.

The Ivittuut site visit facilitated the inspection of the existing pit and infrastructure. Eclipse Metals is actively exploring Ivittuut, a historical cryolite mine and nearby Grønnedal-Ika carbonatite deposit in southwest Greenland for rare earth elements (REE), lithium, base and precious metals and industrial minerals.

Currently, Eclipse is exploring Ivittuut and the proximal Grønnedal-Ika carbonatite deposit in southwest Greenland for rare earth elements (REE), lithium, base and precious metals and industrial minerals.
