Commenced: Kvanefjeld public consultation phase

In December 2020, the Greenland Government approved the start of Kvanefjeld’s EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) and SIA (Social Impact Assessment) statutory public hearing. This marked an important milestone in the Greenlandic Government's formal decision-making process concerning the issuance of an exploitation license for Kvanefjeld.

The public consultation started on 18 December 2020 and will run for 12 weeks. Public meetings will be conducted in South Greenland, attended by representatives of the Greenlandic Government, officials from the Ministries of Mineral Resources and Environment, independent scientific experts as well as Greenland Minerals’ representatives.

Accepted: Kvanefjeld EIA

In September 2020, Greenland’s EAMRA advised that the independent scientific review of the Kvanefjeld EIA along with supporting studies was finalised. The EIA was assessed and met all requirements of the EIA Guidelines for public consultation. EAMRA mentioned that the process was very satisfactory and conducted with a high degree of mutual flexibility and cooperation.  

This marked a major Company milestone, the climax of several years of in-depth studies conducted by an array of independent experts.

Completed: Successful capital raising

In November 2020, Greenland Minerals launched a capital raising through an institutional share placement followed by an SPP. $ 30 million was raised from North American, European, and Australian funds via the placement. Besides, $ 34 million was raised via the SPP.

According to the company, funds are likely to help in finalising licencing and permitting, converting the optimised feasibility study to a DFS, advancing offtake and project funding discussion, expanding organisational capacity and catering to general working capital purposes.

Key observation: Metallurgical development

During the December 2020 - January 2021 period, more than 50kg of flotation concentrate assaying over 20 % TREO was generated by Nagrom. The concentrate will be processed in Q121. Besides, three rare earth products will be produced.

This marked an important step in discovering the optimal intermediate product for downstream processing, along with the development of value chain integration. Greenland Minerals aims to conduct a pilot plant for the Kvanefjeld refinery process in 1H21 to provide design information and risk reduction to the refinery design. Notably, planning for this pilot plant work has begun.

Participation: Commercial and technical conferences  

Across Q420, Greenland Minerals participated in several rare earth focused commercial and technical conferences. Virtual presentations were given for ERES 2020 and the ALTA 2020 conference. The Company also presented in CLSA’s rare earth deep dive forum and the New World Metals conference.

Way forward

In 2021, Greenland Minerals aims to work on following aspects-

  • Advance project permitting.
  • Focus on technical work programs to convert all aspects of Kvanefjeld to DFS level.
  • Tap commercial engagements with a strong focus on European industry.
