Greenland Minerals Ltd (ASX:GGG) has received confirmation that its mining licence application for the Kvanefjeld Rare Earth Project in southern Greenland has been received by the Mineral Licence and Safety Authority (MLSA).

As required by the Government of Greenland (GoG) the following supporting documents were included in the application:

The MSS, EIA and SIA were prepared for the company by independent expert consultants with the scopes of the EIA and SIA framed by terms of reference approved by the Greenland Government in late 2015.

After lodging the mining licence application, company representatives held a series of meetings in Kommune Kujalleq, the municipal authority for the region of southern Greenland which includes the project.

Key findings of the EIA and SIA were presented to the mayor of southern Greenland as well as members of the Kommune.

The next step in the permitting process is a period of public consultation over the course of 8 to 12 weeks with interested stakeholders to provide feedback on the application.
