Bluejay Mining has started permitting activities at the Pituffik titanium project in Greenland after being notified by the Mineral Resource Authority that it had entered the pre-consultation phase of the process. Bluejay said the public pre-consultation period covered a period of 35 days. It added: "By facilitating early input, this phase is aimed at creating a collaborative dialogue between any interested individuals and stakeholder groups throughout the later public consultation process and exploitation application process. "The company recently concluded settlement meetings throughout Greenland as part of the Social Impact Assessment process. "Importantly, there were no issues raised by the community, only that it should employ local people." Bluejay chief executive Roderick McIllree said: "We have ownership over the purest ilmenite project in the world, and therefore we are delighted to have commenced this phase which represents a milestone towards its commercialisation. "We have received significant support from the government and the local Greenland population to date, given the opportunity Pituffik will provide the area, and we look forward to working with them to establish the asset as a significant operation in Greenland."
