Our investors

A reliable partner, Norge Mining aims to build value for its shareholders. We will offer long-term opportunities at an attractive investment level, with significant upside. Norway is, politically and environmentally, one of the most stable and developed countries in the world and its government is strongly fostering the mining industry.

Collaborative and considerate

Mining has a controversial past; of that, there can be no doubt. At times, it has come at a cost to the environment and neighbouring communities and wildlife. Norge Mining is creating a different legacy, one that’s centred around mutual respect for people and the planet.

Interactive and visible

Norge Mining will usher in a new era of considerate exploration and sourcing – in collaboration and communication with local people, landowners and farmers. Regional mayors are already involved and we have established close links with the regional and national Norwegian governments.

Sensitive approach

Using innovation and technology we aim to minimise any impact on the environment. 3D geological models and the use of aerial magnetic surveys help pinpoint accuracy. Norge Mining will also use renewable energy power in its exploration and sourcing wherever we can. We will work hard to make sure as much as possible of the waste material we extract – if not all – is used, such as in the construction of roads.

Sustainable future

All of the minerals we are exploring are in high global demand. Some of them will greatly contribute to a more sustainable future – such as vanadium and phosphates. These are both are on the European Union’s 2020 Critical Raw Materials list – along with titanium.

Licences

Norge Mining has purchased 46 licences: Bjerkreim, Eigersund, Lund, Sokndal and Bømlo-Lykling.

This is where we are focusing our exploration and sourcing efforts for three high-demand minerals and metals: vanadium, phosphates and titanium.

Bjerkreim

Bjerkreim

Bjerkreim is situated at the top of the exploration licence area, at the northern end of Rogaland county and the district of Dalane. The municipality covers 651km² and is the least populated in the licence area. It has a population of nearly 3,000. Agriculture, natural forests and spruce plantations are the main land uses, while agriculture is the primary industry. Bjerkreim also hosts a number of windfarms, with total power production of 249 MW.

Eigersund

Eigersund

Eigersund is the most populous of these municipalities with a population of nearly 15,000. It encompasses large geographical areas, but the population is relatively concentrated. Its industrial sector is large and viable. Adopted by the Municipal Council in 2015, the Eigersund Municipality Plan focuses on three themes: population development, business development and the municipality’s economic situation.

Lund

Lund

Lund Municipality has a population of more than 3,000. Just over 500 people in Lund depend upon agriculture with around 600 working in the secondary industries. Lund is actively working on a green structure and nature conservation programme for its natural areas. There are about 30 places within the municipality that are protected as a national park or nature reserve.

Sokndal

Sokndal

Sokndal is the southernmost municipality in Rogaland county, located in the traditional district of Dalane. The administrative centre is Hauge. It has a population of more than 3,000, increasing by 1.5% over the last decade. The North Sea lies to the south west. The south-eastern part of the municipality is very rocky and rugged It’s the site of the large Tellnes mine – a large producer of Titanium.

Bømlo-Lykling

Bømlo-Lykling

Bømlo is a municipality in the southern part of Hordaland county. The administrative centre is the village of Svortland. Most of the municipal residents live on the island of Bømlo. The 247km² area has a population of nearly 12,000, increasing by 8.4% over the last decade. The municipality includes about 900 islands, islets, and skerries – although most are very small and uninhabited. The Lykling village area has become a popular tourist attraction, mainly due to its history of gold mining. It was discovered here in 1862, it’s alleged, by an unknown miner looking for copper.
