Conico to acquire East Greenland Projects through acquisition of Longland Resources

Conico Ltd (ASX:CNJ) has signed a binding term sheet to acquire 100% of England-registered Longland Resources Ltd and its projects in East Greenland in consideration for 120 million shares in Conico.

Longland has a 100% interest in the Ryberg project which covers 4,512 square kilometres and contains the Sortekap gold prospect and the Miki Fjord and Togeda copper-nickel-cobalt-PGE-gold magmatic sulphide prospects.

Underexplored province


Ryberg is an underexplored mineral province containing multiple targets and deposit styles akin to those in the Yilgarn of Western Australia.

Gold is associated with the greenstones and significant magmatism that has intruded through sediments of the Kangerlussuaq Sedimentary Basin has resulted in sulphide saturation in the mafic-ultramafic rocks and the formation of magmatic sulphides visible at surface as globules and disseminations.

CEO appointment


Geologist and Longland founder Thomas Abraham-James will join Conico as joint chief executive officer.

Abraham-James is a geologist with more than 15 years experience in the mineral exploration industry having undertaken both technical and corporate roles.

Longland was founded by Abraham-James in 2017, focused solely on the Ryberg Project in East Greenland, a locality he identified as being highly prospective and underexplored for nickel-copper magmatic sulphides.

Aside from Longland, he has held senior positions (managing director and exploration manager) wiRead More – Source
