Ironbark has three projects in northern and eastern Greenland targeting base metals – the world class Citronen Zinc-Lead deposit, the Mestersvig Project containing the historic Blyklippen Lead-Zinc mine and the prospective Washington Land Project.
A recent feasibility study, completed in September 2017, revealed that the Citronen Zinc-Lead deposit contains up to 200,000 zinc metal, with a potential annual production of 3.3Mtp over a 14 year life of mine.
