Golder, in cooperation with Inuplan A/S in Greenland, has been selected by Greenland Resources to support an updated Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Social Impact Assessment (SIA) for the Malmbjerg Molybdenum project.
Greenland Resources, a Canadian reporting issuer headquartered in Toronto, Canada, is focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties in Greenland. The company’s flagship project is Malmbjerg, a world-class Climax-type molybdenum deposit located in east-central Greenland. The deposit is within the development phase and an updated EIA and SIA are required in order to obtain a new exploitation permit.
The EIA will include development of scoping documents, Terms of Reference (ToR), baseline studies in vegetation and wildlife, as well as the collection of sediment, water, and organism samples for chemical analysis. The SIA will include scoping documents as well as a monitoring and development plan that will be used in public consultations and meetings in Nuuk. Previous environmental and social baseline data will also be applicable for the submission to obtain an exploitation permit.
“We are excited to add Greenland Resources to our client roster. Golder has unique knowledge and skills to assist clients who are facing the many challenges found in this harsh climate,” says Niels Strufe, Golder’s Arctic Group Leader in Copenhagen. “There is significant activity going on, creating an increased demand for consulting services, as global companies have put the Arctic on their exploration agenda. We are happy be part of that expansion as we support our clients with various Golder consultancy services.”
