TORONTO – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Greenland Resources Inc. (NEO: MOLY, FSE: 2LF) (“Greenland Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce a schedule for the feasibility study of the Malmbjerg Molybdenum Project (the “Project”) NI 43-101 which is being prepared by Tetra Tech Canada Inc.
In 2018, the company, in association with many world-class consultants, began optimizing the previous 2008 feasibility study prepared by Wardrop, now Tetra Tech. The Company’s engineering work completed to date includes a successful design study (DRA, 2019) that proposed the use of modularization of processing equipment and the establishment of a shorter material handling route to the north to the tide, with the aim of reducing construction and operating costs and project commissioning time. In addition, during the summer of 2021, an ambitious field program was successfully completed and confirmed the information and processes necessary for the conclusion of the feasibility study as described in the press release of the Company as of September 15, 2021. On October 12, 2021, the Company’s press published a larger NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate (Tetra Tech, 2021), and recent metallurgical flotation tests at the scale of the company. bank of mineralized samples collected as part of the summer field program have improved the pro forma metallurgical recovery response compared to the test work of the 2008 feasibility study. In addition, the Company announced on the 19th October the creation of a European Advisory Board and the appointment of its first Senior Advisor in order to strengthen its presence on the European markets. As buildability workshops, engineering design and our marketing efforts gain momentum, the company is now ready to provide a project schedule and aims to release the feasibility study in the first quarter of 2022.
Dr Ruben Shiffman, Chairman, commented: “We aim to have proven and probable reserves of molybdenum and a new NI 43-101 feasibility study early next year. This is relevant for our project and also for the European Union (EU) and its associated member countries like Greenland, given that the EU has no reserves of molybdenum, despite being the second largest user. of molybdenum to the world. The time is right and there is a strong economic focus for our world class project as the EU moves towards securing minerals in Europe for their Green Deal and molybdenum, a green energy transition metal, is trading above a thirteen-year high in the past six months. ”

About Greenland Resources Inc.
Greenland Resources is a Canadian reporting issuer for which the Ontario Securities Commission is the primary regulator and is focused on the development of its 100% owned Climax-type pure molybdenum deposit located in east-central Canada. Greenland. Malmbjerg molybdenum deposit has pit limited measured and indicated resources of 281 million tonnes at 0.18% MoS2, for 661 million pounds of molybdenum metal contained (Tetra Tech, 2021). The Malmbjerg project benefits from a feasibility study carried out in 2008 by Wardrop (now Tetra Tech), an environmental and social impact assessment (SRK, 2007), a technical optimization concept study (DRA, 2019) and a previous operating license granted in 2009. With offices in Toronto, the Company is led by a management team with extensive experience in the mining industry and financial markets.

About molybdenum and the European Union
Molybdenum is a metal used primarily in steel and chemicals that is needed in all technologies of the next green energy transition (World Bank, 2020; IEA, 2021). When added to steel and cast iron, it improves strength, hardenability, weldability, toughness, temperature resistance and corrosion resistance. Based on data from the International Molybdenum Association and the European Commission Steel Report, the world produced around 546 million pounds of molybdenum in 2020, where the European Union (“EU”) as that the world’s second-largest steel producer used about 25% of global steel production. molybdenum supply and has no domestic molybdenum production. To a greater extent, European steel-dependent industries, such as automobiles, construction and engineering, account for around 18% of the EU’s $ 16 trillion GDP. Greenland Resources Malmbjerg’s molybdenum project has the potential to provide in and for the EU around 25 million pounds per year, of environmentally friendly molybdenum from a responsible EU associate member country, for decades future.
