Vancouver, BC – HUDSON RESOURCES INC. (“Hudson” – TSX Venture Exchange “HUD”, OTC: HUDRF) has been informed by Spliethoff Transport BV, the owners of the MV Happy Dragon that the bulk ship is now estimated to arrive at the White Mountain project on August 12th. The ship was originally scheduled to arrive after July 25th but has been delayed at its last port of call in Iqaluit, Nunavut where it is dropping off a modular hotel. The delay is primarily due to unexpected ice in the harbour which did not allow the ship to unload. The MV Happy Dragon will be taking Hudson’s GreenSpar product to the United States where it will be transloaded for final shipment to various customers.
The company also announces that on July 31st Hudson hosted the US State Department at the White Mountain project. Mr. Sung Choi, Greenlandic Affairs Officer with the US Embassy in Denmark toured the White Mountain anorthosite operations with Hudson President Jim Cambon and was given an update on the Sarfartoq Rare Earth Element (REE) project. The US is assessing REE deposits with the objective of reducing its reliance on Chinese REE’s.
Jim Cambon, President, commented: “We were pleased to host the US State Department at our mine and to discuss the Sarfartoq REE project and our joint desire to see this project advanced. The United States has become quite active in Greenland as issues around Arctic sovereignty and strategic mineral resources come to the forefront ”.
Hudson is pleased to announce that it will be having the official White Mountain mine opening on August 28th and will be hosting the Government of Greenland and local politicians and community leaders.
Hudson, through Hudson Greenland A/S, owns 100% of the White Mountain Anorthosite mine in Greenland. The calcium feldspar mine is in operation and permitted for 50 years.
