Bluejay Mining PLC (LON:JAY) has received an export permit from the government of Greenland for the shipment of the 40,000 tonnes of run of mine bulk sample material from the Dundas ilmenite project to be processed at the company's pilot processing plant in Quebec, Canada.

Bluejay has already completed the construction of the barge landing-ramp for ship loading, with the shipment loading and departure scheduled to commence within the next four weeks.

Various contractors have now been appointed to help handle the shipping process.  

"Receipt of the export permit from the Greenlandic government and the approval to ship the bulk sample to Quebec represents the last permitting milestone to enable the transportation of the bulk sample to Canada,” said Bluejay chief executive Roderick McIllree.

“Furthermore, the engagement of international shipping company, Pangea Logistical Solutions, has provided Bluejay with confidence that delivery will be made on time and on budget.  Our focus is now on completing the construction of the processing plant and the associated supporting infrastructure at its site in Canada, prior to delivery of the bulk sample material to Rio Tinto Iron and Titanium Canada Inc's ('RTIT') Sorel-Tracy facility in Quebec, Canada.”
