Eclipse Metals Ltd (ASX: EPM), the Australian mineral exploration company, has engaged a leading Europe-based consultancy group to commence the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (EIA and SIA) for its multi-commodity ‘Ivittuut Project’ in South-west Greenland. The EIA and SIA studies will give Eclipse Metals a clear picture of moving forward with the development of Ivittuut (also known as Ivigtût).

Throwing Light on the Potential of Ivittuut
Ivittuut, with a 120-year cryolite mining history, is the world’s largest and only known source of naturally occurring cryolite (a substance used in the production of Aluminium)A combination of surface sampling, historical drill core analysis and satellite imagery analysis had indicated that, in addition to cryolite, the historical mine and the broader project area has enormous potential for rare earth and high-purity quartz. Eclipse moves to develop its understanding of these critical minerals, and explore these new targets during its October 2022 drill program.
The EIA and SIA assessments conducted by the group will be beneficial for the company’s progress in the development of Ivittuut which has rare earth potential and is a prerequisite for Eclipse’s application for a mining licence.
Eclipse Executive Chairman Carl Popal stated, “Overall, results of this work will put Eclipse in a better position with a greater understanding of potential impacts on these aspects so that we can make decisions on Ivittuut’s development.”
Eclipse’s Executive Chairman Carl Popal added, “In Greenland, all projects need to complete an EIA and SIA as part of any mining licence application so once this work is complete we will have a better understanding of what’s needed to move forward at Ivittuut.”
Mineral resources companies must prepare SIA and EIA assessments in connection with developing mineral projects in order to align with the Greenland Parliament Act of 7 December 2009 on mineral resources and mineral resource activities (the Mineral Resources Act).
The study conducted by the group will assist with the overall project description, collection of baseline data, stakeholder mapping, public consultation, and other environmental and social studies. It usually takes two to three years to complete and submit the reports. However, with supporting documents and reports in hand, Eclipse Metals expects that this timeframe will be reduced.
