Global warming in Greenland is shaping up to be a golden goose for the international mining industry.
Delegates to a Greenland Day conference at The University of Western Australia will have a chance to get on board this promising resource frontier.
Greenland's Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP), in partnership with UWA's Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET) are hosting the conference on 4 December.
CET's Research Associate Professor Marco Fiorentini said senior Greenland government officials and international industry representatives would showcase investment opportunities that have arisen in a sector benefiting from rising global temperatures.
"Now in its fourth year, the Greenland Day conference gives industry members a chance to learn how they can benefit from the island's mineral riches," Professor Fiorentini said.
"Technical presentations on the latest initiatives, the island's geological history, and some of the potential exploration activities will be given by senior members of BMP, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland and the CET."
Company project presentations include Czech Geological Research Group, Greenland Minerals and Energy, Hunter Minerals, Ironbark Zinc, North American Nickel, Tanbreez, and Platina Resources.
Greenland Minerals and Energy, BMP and the Centre for Exploration Targeting are the major sponsors of the event. Also sponsoring are Ironbark Zinc Limited and MinesOnline.com.
The conference will be held at UWA on Tuesday, December 4.
