About Greenland Anorthosite Mining A/S
The Company’s anorthosite resource is located in Fiskenæsset on Greenland’s west coast, south of the capital Nuuk. GAM is well advanced in the process of delivering an accelerated programme of initiatives for the grant of a mining license for the Majoqqap Qaava project. The resource is unique in size, and studies conducted by the analytics company ALS and the technical mining consulting company SRK show that the material from Greenland Anorthosite Resources’ mine is of particularly excellent quality with low alkali content, making the raw material particularly attractive for use in fiberglass production.
The anorthosite material has a wide range of applications including the production of fiberglass, cement, paint and aluminium all over the world. A critical, proven technical advantage of the high quality anorthosite discovered on the Company’s property is that it enables the production of fiberglass and aluminium using processes that are far more environmentally friendly than the normal production methods, which use materials such as kaolin and bauxite.
The Company’s shareholders include Greenland Venture (established and owned by the Greenlandic Government), SISA (the Greenlandic Pension Fund), Vækstfonden (the Danish State’s investment fund which helps to create more new growth companies by providing both capital and competencies) and several institutional, corporate and private investors co-investing with the Jean Boulle Group.
The successful exploration, discovery and development by the Company was funded solely by The Jean Boulle Group, whose team has been exploring Greenland for a number of years where it has a number of other Discoveries including battery metals.
