Amaroq Minerals partners with Tamarack for Nalunaq Gold Project
Tamarack is proud to announce a collaborative partnership with Amaroq, signing a critical procurement and supply chain support agreement. This partnership entails sourcing, procuring and mobilizing goods and services to facilitate the relaunch of the Nalunaq gold mine in Greenland.
This partnership also complements Amaroq’s contract agreement with Thyssen Schachtbau GmbH to support the rehabilitation and future development of the mine site infrastructure.
Eldur Olafsson, CEO of Amaroq, stated: “Securing these contracts with experienced and reliable partners is a critical step forward in the restart of the Nalunaq mine. A key factor in our selection criteria for both parties was their expertise in working with projects in remote locations, as well as their focus on safety and efficiency. With these agreements now in place, we are ready to move to the next phase of the project’s development, with rehabilitation activities due to start this month."
Notably, the partnership has already seen the successful delivery of the first containers to the Nalunaq site in mid-September. Mobilization activities are well underway, and the procurement of all key long lead items has been efficiently accomplished.
Ben-Schoeman Geldenhuys, co-Founder of Tamarack Mining Services, highlighted the crucial role of seamless procurement and logistical processes in the success of Nalunaq, considering its remote location. "Tamarack Mining Services provides unrivaled procurement support and negotiation power in this space. Amaroq’s adoption of Tamtek’s Blindspot™ AI Technology for supply chain, procurement, and maintenance, demonstrates its commitment to innovation in mining."
"We are excited to work with Amaroq as they continue to demonstrate their strong commitment and leadership in the development of Greenland’s mining sector," he said.
Nalunaq: A Vision for the Future
Nalunaq, a past-producing underground mine in southern Greenland, has a rich history of producing approximately 350,000 oz of gold between 2004 and 2009. Amaroq believes in its low-cost production potential, and with 2020 inferred resources of 251,000 oz at a grade of 18.5 g/t Au, it holds immense promise for the future.
Stay tuned for further updates on this exciting journey towards unlocking Nalunaq's extraordinary potential.
