"Today marks a highly exciting moment for AEX Gold, with our successful fundraise allowing us to progress our corporate vision, whilst also providing UK and European investors with the opportunity to be a part of Greenland's growing gold sector. We now have the financial capacity to push forward to production at our high-grade Nalunaq gold mine together with targeted exploration across our wider gold acreage in Southern Greenland. Our ambition is to become a full-cycle gold mining business of scale in Greenland, with Nalunaq the first project in what we believe could be many from our existing portfolio of gold assets."
