Bluejay Mining granted exploration approvals for Greenland projects

AIM-listed junior Bluejay Mining has been granted approval for exploration programmes at its two projects in Greenland.

Greenland’s Mineral Licence and Safety Authority approved applications for exploration at the Pituffik Titanium Project and the Disko-Nuussuaq nickel-copper-platinum project with work at both to commence immediately.

The programmes aim to expand and upgrade the current resource at Pituffik, develop bulk sampling with an eye on progressing offtake discussions, identify civil construction requirements, map out future maritime transport logistics and advance exploration permitting.

Bluejay is also commencing an electromagnetic survey at Disko and is evaluating the best to value creating at the nickel-copper-platinum project.

“The 2017 work programme has begun. Development plans have been on the drawing board since the completion of our 2016 season and the finalised work programme is streamlined to deliver maximum result for cost,” said Bluejay CEO Roderick McIllree.

“This will be a value add second half, as we demonstrate the true scale of this very unique project. Having proven that Pituffik is the highest-grade ilmenite project globally, we will now demonstrate the size characteristic and its ultimate commercial value.”
