Eclipse Metals Ltd: Pioneering sustainable critical minerals development

Eclipse Metals Ltd acknowledges the significant hurdles in developing viable critical minerals assets, particularly amidst the growing demand for these resources in the pursuit of future technologies.

In a bustling market, Eclipse stands out as a forward-thinking, environmentally and socially conscious entity poised for expansion in the critical minerals sector.

With projects spanning Australia and Greenland—a jurisdiction gaining attention for its rare earths and critical minerals—Eclipse exhibits a strategic edge supported by a robust technical team and a steadfast commitment to sustainable practices and stakeholder engagement.

Bridging Global Demand and Mining Realities As a dual-listed company on the ASX (EPM) and the FSE (9EU), Eclipse Metals has dedicated over a decade to bridging the gap between global demand for critical minerals and the intricate challenges of establishing viable mining ventures.

The company sets its sights on unlocking rare earth mineral reserves in southwest Greenland at its flagship Ivigtût Project—a region witnessing increased recognition for its untapped rare earth element (REE) potential.

This 100%-owned project underscores Eclipse’s strategic approach in harnessing Greenland’s vast REE resources, buoyed by the nation’s stable mining environment, favorable regulations, and a rich history of cryolite mining.

Commitment to Sustainability and Social Responsibility Eclipse walks the talk on sustainability and social responsibility, adhering to stringent environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards. In Greenland, this entails preserving the country’s mining heritage through collaboration with local communities and the Sermersooq municipality.

The company is diligently conducting environmental and social impact assessments as part of its preparations for mining licensing and eventual production.

Diversified Portfolio and Proactive Engagement Beyond rare earths, Eclipse explores other critical minerals essential for clean energy technologies, such as quartz. Led by experienced leadership including Executive Chair Carl Popal and directors Rodney Dale and Ibrar Idrees, the company pursues thorough exploration and strategic acquisitions to bolster its asset portfolio.

From uranium projects in Australia’s Northern Territory to a variety of minerals like bauxite, manganese, cryolite, and fluorite, Eclipse boasts a diversified asset base—a testament to its commitment to sustainable mining.

Aligned with EU Initiatives and Market Position Eclipse is aligned with the European Union’s initiative to secure a stable supply of critical raw materials. As a member of the European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA), the company actively engages with European agencies to develop rare earths and polymetallic exploration efforts in Greenland.

With a market capitalization of approximately A$13.2 million and a cash reserve of A$1.3 million as of December 2023, Eclipse Metals is well-positioned to drive sustainable critical minerals development and contribute to the global transition to net zero emissions.
