✦ Michael Jardine, Managing Director of Ironbark Zinc Limited (ASX: IBG) explains what's coming up next with their ready made project.
The Citronen Zinc-Lead project is one with all its ducks lined up...and ready to fly.
The company's Citronen Zinc-Lead project in Greenland is an intriguing one.
This is because it has all the factors in place for mining and production to happen immediately. This sounds like everyone's dream project, and projects like that don't grow on trees. Furthermore, their Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) which was released in July 2021 showed really positive signs. Another plus point to add to the project.
And yet, nothing is actually happening.
So that's where one's interest is piqued. What's happening here? Or rather, why isn't something happening here?
