“We are honoured to be listing on First North Iceland. From 1 November we will be able to offer our shares to a larger marketplace, in particular to Iceland, a growing economic market where the Greenland growth story is a well followed current topic. Trading Amaroq IDRs on First North will offer Icelandic investors exposure to Amaroq’s high-value precious and strategic energy transition minerals asset portfolio in South Greenland.
“The close cooperation between Greenland and Iceland paints a very strong growth picture. Both countries are harnessing their natural energy resources sustainably, demonstrating that self-reliance in energy is essential for economic growth and stability. The free trading agreements recently agreed between Iceland and Greenland are testimony to the goodwill of enterprise between the jurisdictions.”
