Bluejay Mining plc, the AIM and FSE listed Greenland focused company is delighted to announced that the 42,000t bulk sample from its 100% owned Dundas Ilmenite Project, the world's highest-grade ilmenite mineral sands project, has successfully departed Greenland destined for the Port of Contrecoeur in Canada. This material will be stockpiled at Bluejay's processing facility to undergo further refinement of up to ±10,000t of heavy mineral concentrate from which half will be sent to Rio Tinto Iron and Titanium Canada Inc for testing at their Sorel-Tracy Plant in Quebec as set out in the agreement announced on 28 May 2019. Once delivered this material will undergo large scale smelter test work designed to confirm suitability for long term commercial use at this facility. The Company engaged US based bulk commodity specialists Mid-Ship Group LLC to assist in the identification of logistic specialists capable of delivering on a project of this scale. The shipping was executed by Pangaea Logistic Solutions via its subsidiary Phoenix Bulk Carriers, Copenhagen based Nordic Bulk carriers, pioneers in the shipment of bulk cargoes through the north west passage with stevedoring executed by Phoenix partner Guy J Bailey Ltd from Newfoundland.

Ship-loading was completed efficiently in less than 3 days, at an average loading rate of just over 19,000 metric tonnes per day with minimal disruption. The ship-loading operation was supported by existing onsite mining equipment as well as additional systems transported in by Phoenix and owned and operated by G J Bailey.
