The site visits were conducted by the Company’s consultants WSP Danmark A/S to collect additional data for the Environmental Impact Assessment and Social Impact Assessment application. The work included the retrieval of information from the two weather monitoring stations installed in the Schuchert Valley and Mesters Vig Inlet in the summer of 2021; the upgrade of two monitoring stations to provide real time online data; collection of water samples in various sites; documentation of vegetation transects, as well as documentation of seasonal pack ice in King Oscars fjord at Nyhavnand Mesters Vig Inlet. A reconnaissance trip covering the aerial rope conveyor route that will transport ore from the mine site to the harbour without producing CO2, and generates its own electricity in excess 1.3 Mw was completed. The Company also signed a sponsorship agreement during the summer aiming to help the nearby community of Ittoqqortoormiitas per press release dated July 14, 2022. The Company is on schedule with the proposed permitting chronology described in section 20.2 of the Company’s NI 43-101 Feasibility Study SEDAR filed on April 11, 2022.
In addition, the Company continues discussion with potential strategic partners and end users together with the European Raw Material Alliance, as per their press release https://eitrawmaterials.eu/erma-supports-greenland-resources-in-development-of-the-malmbjerg-molybdenum-project-in-east-greenland/. As part of the marketing efforts, the Company will attend the International Molybdenum Association (“IMOA”) 34th Annual General Meeting in Geneva, Switzerland 4-9 September 2022 and will conduct meetings with various industry stakeholders. IMOA is a non-profit trade association that represents around 95% of molybdenum mine production and almost all conversion capacity outside China, as well as some mining and conversion capacity within China. Members include producers, converters, traders, service providers, downstream processors, and users of molybdenum.

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 lead worldwide by Europe, specifically the Scandinavian countries and Germany.
