Amaroq’s New Licences
Amaroq Minerals has secured the award of two new mineral exploration licences in South Greenland, covering a collective size of 1,916.81km2. This now makes the Corporation the largest single mineral licence holder in Greenland with a total of 9,785.56 km2. The two new licences comprise:
- Nunarsuit – connecting the copper prospectivity seen at the Sava licence to the historical Josva copper mine in the Kobbermineburgt licence in the West and also incorporating the Nunarsuit intrusion, an unexplored Rare Earth Elements (“REE”) district within the Gardar Province, already know to host significant REE and other critical element potential; and
- Paatusoq West – covering the western extension of the Paatusaq Gardar intrusion, prospective for REE and other critical metals.
The Corporation now holds the vast majority of the newly defined South Greenland copper tract under licence, spanning from Kobberminebugt in the West to North Sava in the East. This tract has the potential to host world class copper and strategic mineral deposits in the form of skarns, IOCG and porphyry bodies. These licences also cover part of the Gardaq Province Mineral Belt that holds significant potential for REE projects such as Kvanefjeld and Tanbreez. Amaroq will look to continue its funded exploration activities across these licences and the full licence portfolio over the coming years under the terms of its joint venture with GCAM.
