In this episode we have a returning guest who appeared back in Feb 2022 (Episodes 209). Eldur Olafsson, Founder and CEO at Amaroq Minerals who are a Greenland-focussed mining company engaged in the identification, acquisition, exploration and development of gold properties and other strategic minerals assets in Greenland.
Eldur is a geologist by background and has worked in around Greenland and Iceland for well over a decade and started Amaroq Minerals which was formally know as AEX gold back in 2017 so has come a long way since then and he shares his journey, what Amaroq Minerals has been up to since we last spoke and gives us an update on the progress of the Nalunaq project.
"Greenland has in our mind, one of the best mineral potential you can find… Geological prospectivity is fantastic."
"We have a current resource of 320,000 ounces. Our target is to increase that resource to well above a million ounces in the next three years."
"We are among, if not the largest private investor in Greenland… There's been a lot of investment into things like rigs, camps, all of these things you need to be able to be successful."
"The logistical route into Greenland is via Copenhagen or via Halifax… So that's a pretty good service compared to many other countries around this Arctic region."
