OSLO: Green Minerals AS announced that Forskningsrådet, one of the Norwegian Government`s key vehicles to help finance innovation- and research projects, has granted development support to the Company through Skattefunn of NOK 1,9m.
The risk-reduction support is provided towards further development of the Company`s proprietary DeepMineX (pending) software, key to the decision-gates in deep sea exploration and mining.
“Norway is well positioned to take the lead globally in extracting the marine minerals and rare earth elements needed for the green energy transition. A strong cooperation between companies, authorities and investors are needed, and we are pleased to see this grant from Forskningsrådet,” says Ståle Rodahl, Executive Chairman of Green Minerals AS.
Green Minerals AS is a pioneer in marine minerals on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Our mission is to deliver minerals for the green energy transition in a responsible and sustainable manner, thereby lowering the environmental impact and reducing the social costs from onshore mining.
