Focussed on Greenland

  • Highly prospective and underexplored land mass
  • Greenland is seeking to increase economic independence as Danish subsidy is reduced
  • Opportunities in gold, zinc, lead, coal, iron ore, rare earths and precious stones, etc.
  • Angel is the only operational mining company in Greenland
  • Founder Member of the Greenland Mining Association

  • Shipment of the new long hole drill is now planned for 4 October and it should be on site early November
  • Bolt tests complete so resin packs are now on order
  • Agreement needed with BMP to enable us to use mechanical rock bolts where rock failure would not otherwise be significant
  • Development in Mountain Block are going well – a series of single rises to create a stope – grade over 100gpt

  • Production has been poor in August and September due to low grade and problems with crushing circuit

16/8 Pour 18 17.6kg 507 ozs gold

26/8 Pour 19 8.31kg 240 ozs gold

13/9 Pour 20 8.87kg 256 ozs gold

  • Crushing circuit is now fixed so that all crushing can be done underground
  • Delay in delivery of balls for ball mill has caused gold recovery to fall. Balls due on site today.
  • New liner for the ball mill is in transit – due before end of month

black angel zinc lead mine
Black Angel Zinc/Lead Mine
  • A high grade zinc/lead mine (typically 15% Zn, 6% Pb)
  • Operated by Cominco from 1976 and closed in 1990
  • JORC compliant resource
    • 4.5m tonnes @ 8.6% Zn and 3% Pb,
  • Plus non-JORC compliant resource
    • 2.6m tonnes of @ 14.9% Zn and 5.5% Pb
  • Capex estimate to build the mine - $85 million
  • Target output pa 30,000 tonnes Zn and 8,000 tonnes Pb
  • Cash generation potential of first 5 years (pillar extraction) - $186m
  • Life of Mine – over 20 years

Deep Ice Zone

  • Extensively drilled by Cominco pre JORC
  • Grid pattern was 200m x 300m drilling through the ice cap
  • Many intersections with mineralisation
  • Best hole hit 5.9m, 19.5% Zn, 13.1% Pb

Internal Report by Dr. Bob Dowdell, dated August 2008, estimates:-

2.6m tonnes of inferred resource at 14.9% Zn, 5.5% Pb

Indicated Resources: 0.2 Mt @ 9.0% Zn & 3.4% Pb


Measured Resources: 492kt @ 4.7% Zn & 2.2% Pb

Black Angel - Financing
  • Need for JORC resource statement for Deep Ice Zone
  • Cash Cost per tonne estimated at $1,125
  • Fuel Oil accounts for 34% of cash cost
  • Net Smelter Return, at a MP of $2,000 per tonne for Zn/Pb, is $1,416
  • Margin potential is therefore $291 per tonne
  • Hydro could reduce fuel oil cost to 8% of cash cost and reduce the cash cost per tonne to $960 per tonne
  • NIRAS can produce a pre-feasibility assessment of the hydro scheme before the end of the year

The Future

  • We have already learned a great deal,
  • much of it – the hard way.
  • We now know how to operate in Greenland.
  • To set the standard for mining in Greenland
  • Develop NGM, BA and other Greenlandic projects
  • To lead in the new, and last, frontier
