Greenland's vast natural resources, ranging from oil and gas to uranium, rare earth and iron ore, have remained largely inaccessible under thick layers of ice, making them too difficult and expensive to extract. But with a receding ice sheet and new transport routes opening through the Northwest Passage these prized materials have now placed Greenland at the threshold of a potential commodities boom that could see the territory transformed. This potentially paves the way for companies like the Australian mining consortium Greenland Minerals and Energy (GME) to start digging for deposits of rare earth in places like the Kvanefjeld mountains near the town of Narsaq on the west coast of the territory. In places like Narsaq, opinion is starkly divided over the issue.
