Aerial photography across the Thule Black sands project in Greenland undertaken by Alba Mineral Resources PLC (LON:ALBA) has now been compiled into a georeferenced orthophoto and digital elevation model by GEUS, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.

Alba took aerial photography across the licence area as part of the field programme in the third quarter of 2017.

The aerial photography highlights target mineralisation from across the entire 22km of coastline within the Project area

The work by GEUS will assist in identifying future exploration targets and will aid mapping of the sedimentary features. This will in turn assist the geological modelling for use in future resource estimates.

"We are grateful to the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, GEUS, for their assistance in compiling this report,” said Alba's Executive Chairman, George Frangeskides.

“GEUS has been exploring the Thule region of north-west Greenland for many decades and has amassed a substantial geological database for the region.  This latest analysis of the extensive mineralised coastline at our Thule Black Sands Project will greatly help us in the weeks and months ahead as we prepare a significant field work programme for this coming field season."
