The mining project is located in mountainous terrain where the nearest town is Ittoqqortoormitt, some 185 kilometers southeast of Malmberget. The nearest place with any infrastructure is the Danish defense station at Mestersvik, some 30 kilometers northeast of the deposit. The Canadian company Greenland Resources plans to break 12.8 million tons of ore annually and from that, extract molybdenum concentrate.
The Malmberg mining project in Eastern Greenland, where molybdenum concentrate is to be extracted, is currently subject to a public hearing round with input deadline on 22 February, according to Sermitsiaq. The hearing is part of a process leading to two different impact assessments, which if approved may lead to the company’s receiving an exploitation license.
