This webinar provides an analysis of the development of the natural resource sector in Greenland, identifies the challenges facing mining firms and the opportunities created for services firms such as Arcadis, CH2M HILL, ENVIRON and ERM. As the Arctic ice sheet melts it exposes mineral deposits – gold, zinc, platinum, nickel, iron and rare earths – on Greenland’s coast. Mining firms such as Greenland Minerals and Energy and North American Nickel have bought up exploration licenses from the government of Greenland which is increasingly seeking to develop the natural resource sector in a country with a surface area three times the size of Texas and a population of just 57,000. While the jury is out on when mining operations will begin, mining firms will require a wide range of engineering consulting and environmental services. Which services firms are best positioned to meet this demand in what will become a booming natural resources market?
