Bluejay Mining has been awarded a new mineral exploration license surrounding its existing Kangerluarsuk zinc-lead-silver project in west-central Greenland. The 586-km2 license expands Kangerluarsuk by more than fivefold to 692 km2. The company plans to initiate its first drilling program on project later this year, along with other exploration activity, as part of its 2020 field season.

Bluejay CEO Roderick McIllree commented, “We are delighted to have been granted this new license area at Kangerluarsuk. Our decision to increase our land holding by over five-fold is testament to our confidence in the license’s prospectivity.

“With this in mind we are excited to commence our 2020 field season. This includes a relatively low-cost maiden drilling campaign (subject to approval
by Greenland’s Mineral Licence and Safety Authority), which will target known zinc, silver, lead, and copper occurrences that have correlations with the neighboring former Black Angel zinc-lead-silver mine.

“We look forward to updating shareholders in due course on developments relating to the upcoming summer work program, as well as at our advanced Dundas ilmenite project and the Disko-Nussuaq project, both also in Greenland, as we prepare for a highly active 2020.”
