(AIM:AMRQ)(TSXV:AMRQ), an independent mining company with a land package of gold and strategic mineral assets covering an area of 7,615.85km2 in Southern Greenland, is pleased to announce that it has now signed a Memorandum of Understanding ('MoU') with ABD Solutions, a business within AB Dynamics PLC, to investigate the potential for the introduction of vehicle autonomy systems for various mining vehicles at the Nalunaq site in Greenland.

With a mission to accelerate the transition to autonomy, they offer specialised vehicle agnostic driverless automation solutions capable of working across a wide range of off-highway environments.
- Amaroq Minerals (Amaroq) is currently planning a pilot mining and processing operation at its Nalunaq Project in Greenland the aim of which is prove the continuity of the mineralisation and provide input to a feasibility study and detailed engineering which would provide the design basis for a subsequent full scale mine.
- Amaroq intends to work closely with ABDS during this process to enable ABDS to adapt its existing driverless automated vehicle management solutions to the specific environmental and vehicular requirements of the Nalunaq site. The MoU sets out the principal terms and conditions on, and subject to which, Amaroq Minerals is willing to enter detailed discussions regarding this process.
- The long-term goal of the MoU is to provide a framework for ABDS to deliver the support, software and hardware solutions needed for the Company to operate a diverse range of automation equipment and retrofittable mining vehicles on the Nalunaq site in Greenland. These vehicles would be operated automatically and supervised from a central control room, therefore, improving safety and streamlining the mining process, both operationally and financially.
Amaroq's strategy prior to beginning the next stage of redevelopment at Nalunaq is to explore innovative technologies so as to operate in the most sustainable way as well as to leverage existing mine infrastructure. ABDS' mission is to accelerate the transition to autonomy by providing retrofit solutions that enable the automation of conventional vehicle fleets rapidly and cost-effectively.
Eldur Olafsson, CEO of AEX Gold, commented:
'We are delighted to announce our planned partnership with ABD Solutions a well-regarded automation company with substantial experience working with organisations to accelerate the transition to autonomy. We are focussed on ensuring that we seek out and deploy innovative technology across Nalunaq, and going forward the rest of the assets within our extensive licence area, as we believe that this will allow us to introduce new skill sets to the workforce in Greenland and to operate safely, efficiently and sustainably. The team look forward to working closely with ABDS and utilise their considerable knowledge throughout the Nalunaq development process.'
