About Greenland

Greenland lies between latitudes 60° and 84° N and longitudes 11° and 74° W and is the third largest country on the North American continent (although Greenlanders traditionally record themselves as Inuit but having a lifestyle more like Europeans). The Atlantic Ocean borders Greenland's southeast; the Greenland Sea is to the east; the Arctic Ocean is to the north; and Baffin Bay is to the west. The nearest countries are Canada, to the west across Baffin Bay, and Iceland, east of Greenland in the Atlantic Ocean. Greenland also contains the world's largest national park, and is the world's largest island.  Greenland is an independent colony of Denmark responsible for all affairs except foreign and defense. Greenland with a north south length of nearly 2000 km has a great variety of climates from the extreme artic deserts of the north and east coast to the very mild, Gulf Stream affected South-West coast where this deposit is located.

On the same latitude as Helsinki, Oslo and North Scotland this area has average winter temperatures of 0-5oC, and a summer temperature of about 10-13oC. Thus it is considerably warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Qaqortoq is the main town and port in the area. It is situated 20 kilometers south of the License. It has a population of 3093 (January 2018). The second port, Narsaq (population 1365, January 2018), is approximately 10 kilometers east of the License area.  The deposit ranges from 0 - 4 kilometers from a potential deep water ice free port site.  The international airport and former US air base of Narsarsuaq is situated about 30 kilometers to the north east of the License area.
