MAJORGAP QAVA ANORTHOSITE DEPOSIT GREENLAND
The Jean Boulle Group has been active in mineral exploration in Greenland for over 20 years. Today it is the majority shareholder of Greenland Anorthosite Resources which discovered a large anorthosite deposit on the country’s west coast. The mineral found there is particularly attractive given the rarity of its low-alkali content making it a more valuable, greener choice for use by fibreglass manufacturers and in aluminium production. As a result, the project has attracted co-investment from the governments of Greenland and Denmark who recognise the benefits which responsible mining can bring to the country’s much needed development. Geological findings indicate that the company could enable Greenland to make a meaningful contribution to the green transition and operate for over 100 years.
