This is the non-technical summary of the Social Impact Assessment (SIA) for the Ilmenite Project near Moriusaq, North-West Greenland.
The aim of the Ilmenite Project is to extract ilmenite from onshore beaches of 'black sand' deposit on the South coast of Steensby Land peninsula in Northern Greenland. Ilmenite is a titanium-iron oxide mineral (FeTiO3) that is mined and processed for its titanium. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is an important commodity used as pigments in paint, plastics, enamels, paper and cosmetics and in the making of different metal alloys.
The project is owned by Dundas Titanium A/S, a company registered in Greenland.
Dundas Titanium A/S owns 100 % of the current exploration license (number 2015/08) and has been responsible for all the exploration work at the site carried out over the last three years. Dundas Titanium is 100 % owned by Bluejay Mining plc.
A separate Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has been developed for the project.
The non-technical summary describes the project, the SIA methodology and process and the result of the impact analysis.
