Storø

The Storø gold prospect is located in the Nuuk Fjord area of southwest Greenland, some 40 km northeast of the capital city of Nuuk (Godthab). The Storø exploration license is held by Copenhagen Minerals Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Greenland Resources and comprises a total area of 66 km2. Since 1995, a total of 86 drill holes totaling 15,375 meters have been drilled by previous owners. Gold in the Nuuk Fjord area is located in the strongly deformed and metamorphosed rocks of Archean age. The area is an extension of the North American Craton and is suggested to correlate with the Nain Region in Labrador, Canada.  In the Storø gold prospect, there are two levels of mineralization, the Main Zone and the BD Zone. Both zones are situated within the Qingaaq Mountain and are up to 12m thick with 10-50m wide low grade alteration halos. The main focus of Greenland Resources’s exploration is the Qingaaq Mountain area in the southwest of the license. The Main Zone occurs in an antiformal fold in the upper amphibolite unit and consists of auriferous quartz veins in garnet and biotite alteration zones up to 50m thick. Surface rock grab samples have returned up to 82.3 g/t Au (Sample RGC106916) in this area with common visible gold in both surface and drill core samples. The Main Zone has been traced to 150 m below the surface in drill holes and gold grades in drill samples range up to 52g/t Au over 2m (DDH05-05 47m-49m). The BD Zone occurs lower, on the contact between biotite-sillimanite-garnet gneiss and the upper amphibolites and gold occurs mainly in quartz-veined, arsenopyrite-bearing zones along the contact and in both rock types up to 20m away from the contact. Gold grades in drill core samples range up to 15 g/t Au over 10m (DDH 10-54 39m-49m). The BD zone has been followed along strike for 700-800 m with channel samples that returned up to 22g/t Au over a true width of 1.8m (Sample RCH213061). The mineralization has been traced to nearby Aappalaartoq Mountain situated 4 km to the NE from Qingaaq Mountain. On Aappalaartoq surface samples return up to 25.6 g/t Au (RGB212942) in situ and 46.4 g/t in scree (SCS111358).

Selected intercepts of the auriferous zones below Qingaaq Mountain comprise but are not limited to: 20m of 6.3g/t Au (DH95-03); 12m of 4.2g/t Au (DH05-01); 23.9m of 6.4g/t Au (DH05-05); 12.1m of 5.6g/t Au (DH06-32); 28.8M of 6.74g/t Au (DH10-54). True width is likely to be less than the apparent intercept depending on the orientation of the mineralized structures. Au grade = weighted average (total length*total grade/total length).
