Greenland Resources Supports the Local Community of Ittoqqortoormiit in East Greenland

Greenland Resources Inc. (NEO: MOLY, FSE: M0LY) (“Greenland Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that today, the Company commenced a sponsorship agreement with the Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq municipality aimed at helping the local community of Ittoqqortoormiit, the only nearby settlement located 190 km to the southeast of the Greenland Resources Malmbjerg Project (“Project”). Ittoqqortoormiit has 354 inhabitants and was established in 1924.

Upon consultations with the municipality and Ittoqqortoormiit local council, the parties have entered a sponsorship agreement for the period August 1, 2022 – December 31, 2024, with the possibility of prolonging the agreement and establishing support in areas like education and mining training. Among others, and as per the highlighted needs of the community, the Company will support various initiatives including the upcoming 100-year anniversary of the founding of Ittoqqortoormiit, the restoration of the new curation of the museum as well as grant means for supporting the skiing community in providing poles for skiing training, especially for children and youth. The new curation of the museum in Ittoqqortoormiit will be done with high curation standards communicated in Greenlandic, English, and Danish. The new curation will first and foremost benefit the local population as well as visitors and tourists coming to Ittoqqortoormiit.

Dr. Ruben Shiffman, Executive Chairman of Greenland Resources, stated: “We are very pleased to be able support the people of Ittoqqortoormiit. Despite the community being 190 km away and having no presence, hunting nor fishing in the Project area, we aim to have mainly Greenlandic people working, participating and training in our project where Ittoqqortoormiit will play an important role. We have a very positive track record on corporate social responsibility in previous TSX listed mining projects, social responsibility is a very important part of our corporate culture. Our intention is to go way beyond legal obligations, contracts, and license agreements, and therefore provide new life skills to the community and help people live a better life.”

Mr. Kristian Hammeken, local representative from Ittoqqortoormiit working for the municipality Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq states: “It is important for the development of Ittoqqortoormiit that it also benefits the local community clearly when international economic development takes places. We are happy that Greenland Resources wants to enter a sponsor agreement that goes beyond their legal obligations. We are especially happy that the sponsorship will benefit children and youth for the upcoming skiing and winter season and will benefit the 100th anniversary of Ittoqqortoormiit.”

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 25% 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 million pounds per year, of environmentally friendly molybdenum from a responsible EU Associate member country, for decades to come. The high quality of the Malmbjerg ore, having low impurity content, makes it an ideal source of molybdenum for the world leading high performance steel industry in Europe.
