Latest News

On 21 March 2012, TANBREEZ Mining Greenland A/S (TANBREEZ) submitted to Greenland Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP) a draft application for an exploitation licence covering rare earth elements and feldspars ("new licence" at Narsaq/Kangerluarsuk in South Greenland, BMP file no. 2012-064338).

Since then, BMP and TANBREEZ have worked together in reviewing and finalising the documentation and information required for filing of the final and comprehensive application by TANBREEZ.

TANBREEZ expects to submit the final application on 28 February 2013, including all required translations of the documents. On the filing date, the statutory hearing process for the application will commence.

Prior to filing the final application, TANBREEZ plans to arrange information meetings as follows:
