Greenland Resources Provides an Update on the EU Critical Raw Materials Act and Participation at the 2023 EIT / ERMA Raw Material Summit in Brussels, Belgium


Greenland Resources Inc. (NEO: MOLY | FSE: M0LY) (“Greenland Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on today’s European Commission proposed comprehensive set of actions by the European Commission (the “EC”) to ensure the EU's access to a secure, diversified, affordable and sustainable supply of critical and strategic raw materials to meet its Green Deal and digital objectives to be approved by the European parliament (see: In addition, from the 15th to the 17th of May, 2023, the Company plans to present the Malmbjerg molybdenum project at the EIT RawMaterials Summit in Brussels, Belgium and was asked to participate in a round table on responsible mining (see: The Company sees all these events as very positive for the Malmbjerg molybdenum project.

Highlights of EC’s press release about the proposed Critical Raw Materials Act

The EC, in their capacity as the executive body of the EU responsible for drawing up proposals for new European legislation, has proposed the Critical Raw Materials Act which aims to:

  • Equip the EU with the tools to access and secure the sustainable supply of critical and strategic raw materials
  • Identify strategically important projects that would benefit from streamlined permitting and access to finance
  • Protect the environment by improving circularity and sustainability of critical raw materials
  • Set benchmarks for domestic capacities along the strategic raw material supply chain and to diversify EU supply by 2030 by at least 10% of the EU's annual consumption for extraction, at least 40% of the EU's annual consumption for processing, at least 15% of the EU's annual consumption for recycling, and not more than 65% of the EU’s annual consumption of each strategic raw material from a single third country
  • Reduce the administrative burden and simplify permitting procedures for critical raw materials projects
  • Invest in research, innovation, and skills surrounding these goals
  • Create a European Critical Raw Materials Board to coordinate and provide advice for strategic projects’ access to finance

Related to the EIT Raw Materials Summit in Brussels, the Company was invited to speak in a round table discussion on Wednesday May 17 at 9am (CET) to discuss the importance of responsible mining in Europe, its social implications, and the road ahead on aspects of mining and processing. At another session, the Company is scheduled to present its “Greenland Molybdenum Project – Securing reliable high quality molybdenum supply for the EU Green Deal from a responsible EU associate source”.

Dr. Ruben Shiffman, Executive Chairman, commented: “The proposed European Critical Raw Materials Act adds to the good news of our molybdenum project in Greenland. The proposed act, which also aims to support strategic projects combined with the very positive feedback and documentation we have signed directly with European steel and chemical end users and the support we received in recent regulatory stakeholders’ meetings from the government of Greenland, local communities and others, adds to our conviction”.

About EIT RawMaterials

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) RawMaterials, was initiated and funded by the European

Union and has the overarching mandate to support securing the supply of critical and other strategically important raw materials to the European industry by driving innovation along the raw materials value chain. The European RawMaterials Alliance (ERMA), was launched by the European Commission in 2020 as part of an action plan aiming to reduce Europe’s raw materials’ dependency on third countries, diversifying supply from both primary and secondary sources and improving resource efficiency and circularity while promoting responsible sourcing worldwide. ERMA is managed by EIT RawMaterials.

About Greenland Resources Inc.

Greenland Resources is a Canadian public company with the Ontario Securities Commission as its principal regulator and is focused on the development of its 100% owned world-class Climax type pure molybdenum deposit located in central east Greenland. The Malmbjerg molybdenum project is an open pit operation with an environmentally friendly mine design focused on reduced water usage, low aquatic disturbance and low footprint due to modularized infrastructure. The Malmbjerg project benefits from a NI 43-101 Definitive Feasibility Study completed by Tetra Tech in 2022, with Proven and Probable Reserves of 245 million tonnes at 0.176% MoS2, for 571 million pounds of contained molybdenum metal. As the high-grade molybdenum is mined for the first half of the mine life, the average annual production for years one to ten is 32.8 million pounds per year of contained molybdenum metal at an average grade of 0.23% MoS2., approximately 25% of EU total yearly consumption. The project had a previous exploitation license granted in 2009. With offices in Toronto, the Company is led by a management team with an extensive track record in the mining industry and capital markets. For further details, please refer to our web site ( and our Canadian regulatory filings on Greenland Resources’ profile at

The Project is supported by the European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA) as stated in their press release EIT/ERMA_June 13, 2022 Press Release, a Knowledge and Innovation Community of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.

About Molybdenum and the European Union

Molybdenum is a critical metal used mainly in steel and chemicals that is needed in all technologies in the upcoming green energy transition (World Bank, 2020; IEA, 2021). When added to steel and cast iron, it enhances strength, hardenability, weldability, toughness, temperature strength, and corrosion resistance. Based on data from the International Molybdenum Association and the European Commission Steel Report, the world produced around 576 million pounds of molybdenum in 2021 where the European Union (“EU”) as the second largest steel producer in the world used approximately 24% of global molybdenum supply and has no domestic molybdenum production. To a greater degree, the EU steel dependent industries like the automotive, construction, and engineering, represent around 18% of the EU’s ≈ US$16 trillion GDP. Greenland Resources strategically located Malmbjerg molybdenum project has the potential to supply in and for the EU approximately 25% of the EU consumption, of environmentally friendly high quality molybdenum from a responsible EU Associate country, for decades to come. The high quality of the Malmbjerg ore, having low impurity content in phosphorus, tin, antimony, and arsenic, makes it an ideal source of molybdenum for the high-performance steel industry lead worldwide by Europe, specifically the Scandinavian countries and Germany.
