RAPAPORT... The public hearing period is open for True North Gems Inc.'s exploitation permit application for the Aappaluttoq ruby deposit in southwest Greenland through September 12. All relevant documents are  accessible through Greenland's Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP) and True North Gems.

As part of True North Gems' efforts to pursue an open and transparent process, the company will host its own information meetings on August 12 in Qeqertarsuatsiaat (Fiskenaesset),  August 13 in Paamiut and August 15 in Nuuk. These presentations were scheduled ahead of BMP's formal public hearing, and True North stated that it would present the proposal and discuss the opportunities of the project in much less technical form to facilitate an informal dialog with the relevant communities.
 
"All planning and logistical work is completed for the initial round, and together with our Greenlandic stakeholder partners the company is looking forward to a well attended assembly at each of the venues," said Nicholas Houghton, the president of True North Gems.  "The public hearing process and information meetings will be an open and informative opportunity to learn first hand how the production of ruby and pink sapphire will benefit Greenland and each community."

True North also stated that Graham Nicholls was stepping down as executive vice president and he would continue to provide the company with consultation services throughout the hearing process and construction phases.
