Series of transactions

‘Jewel in the crown’
The company is confident that its Citronen Zinc-Lead Project in Greenland offers a rare scale and grade combination with a long mining life in a unique jurisdiction.
Ironbark considers Citronen the ‘jewel in the crown’ because the project has a 30-year mining lease and has 18 million tonnes at 8.24% zinc and lead with 14 million tonnes in measured and indicated resources.
The high-grade zone is within a significantly larger resource of 132 million tonnes at 4.5% zinc and lead with potential for further regional exploration.
