Zone 3

Zone 3 is located along the northeastern margin of the Ilimaussaq Complex and features outcropping lujavrite. Geological mapping suggests that Zone 3 represents the apex of a structural culimination that focused REE-U rich lujavrite magma. Initial drill holes confirm a significant mineralized body of REE-U rich lujavrite underlies the area and expands with depth. Following drilling conducted in 2011, an initial resource estimate is anticipated in early 2012.

Northern Ilimaussaq Specialty Metal

Iimaussaq Complex – Specialty Metals (Kvanefjeld) The Ilimaussaq complex is one of the most unique geological environments on the planet, and host to prolific resources of rare earth elements, uranium, and zinc. It is the type-locality for a layered peralkaline igneous complex, and is as unique in its unusual rock-types…

Kvanefjeld – REEs, uranium, zinc

Kvanefjeld – REEs, uranium, zinc Kvanefjeld is located at the northwest corner of the Ilimaussaq complex. Underlying the broad plateau is a vaste multi-element resource that includes one of the world’s largest resources of rare earth elements (as defined by JORC or NI 43-101 reporting codes), along with extensive resources…

Sørensen At Sørensen lujavrite occurs below a naujaite cap, but thick layers of lujavrite outcrop in the steep slopes that run between the ridge crest at 700m elevation, and Tunugdliarfik fjord. GMEL reported in mid-2010 that drilling had encountered significant intercepts of lujavrite. The results of the first hole drilled…

Steenstrupfjeld Steenstrupfjeld occurs at the top of the Narsaq valley, to the immediate east of Kvanefjeld. Mineralised lujavrite outcrops and was recognized historically. However, recent drill holes that were originally intended to sterilize the adjacent plateau intersected mineralization under a thin veneer of cover up to 950m away from the…
