The company, which says it has completed construction of a barge landing-ramp for ship loading, will use Pangaea Logistic Solutions to transport about 40,000 tonnes of sample material from 100%-owned Dundas, described by Bluejay as "the world's highest-grade mineral sands ilmenite project".

"Receipt of the export permit from the Greenlandic government and the approval to ship the bulk sample to Quebec represents the last permitting milestone to enable the transportation of the bulk sample to Canada," Bluejay CEO Roderick McIllree said.

"The engagement of international shipping company, Pangea Logistical Solutions, has provided Bluejay with confidence that delivery will be made on time and on budget.  Our focus is now on completing the construction of the processing plant and the associated supporting infrastructure at its site in Canada, prior to delivery of the bulk sample material to Rio Tinto Iron and Titanium Canada Inc's Sorel-Tracy facility in Quebec, Canada.

"We firmly believe that the testing of this material will prove to be both value-adding and transformative for the company as we progress towards commercial mining in tandem with the development of our other key projects in Greenland."
