PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - June 3, 2015) - Greenland Minerals and Energy Ltd ('GMEL' or 'the Company') (ASX:GGG)(OTC PINK:GDLNF)(FRANKFURT:G7P) is pleased to announce the maiden Ore Reserve Estimate for the Kvanefjeld Project. The reserve estimation has been produced by SRK Consulting (Australasia) Pty Ltd, who conducted an updated Mining Study as part of the Kvanefjeld Feasibility Study (May, 2015). The Mining Study is supported by the Mineral Resource Estimate, which was released in February 2015.

The Ore Reserves estimate has been developed to JORC 2012 standards as summarised in Table 1. The following constraints were applied to the estimate for the preparation of this statement:

The Ore Reserves are situated in the upper part of the Kvanefjeld Deposit, the largest of three defined mineral resources within the broader project area. At the projected production rate of 3 million tonnes per annum, the Ore Reserves are sufficient to sustain 37 years of operation, inclusive of ramp-up.

Dr John Mair, GMEL Managing Director commented:

'An initial ore reserve of 108 million tonnes is an outstanding result, and is another really important project milestone. It takes a lot of work across numerous disciplines to achieve this level of confidence. The Ore Reserves estimate reinforces Kvanefjeld's status as one of the most advanced and significant emerging projects in the rare earth and uranium sectors globally.'
