The Citronen Zinc-Lead Project represents one of the world’s largest undeveloped zinc-lead resources with a resource in excess of 13 billion pounds of contained zinc and lead metal. The project is located in northern Greenland, a self-governed part of the Kingdom of Denmark and has a low level of sovereign risk.
To date in excess of 67,000m of diamond drilling has been completed at the Citronen Project. Citronen is a sedimentary exhalative (SEDEX) deposit- a potentially very large type of deposit. The mineralisation at Citronen starts from surface, is flat lying and is currently open in almost all directions. The deposit is adjacent to a deep water fjord that provide near mine ship docking and loading opportunities.
