China’s rare-earths giant Shenghe Resources Holding Co. and an Australian firm were on the cusp of developing a mine along the icebound island’s southern coast when Greenland’s government called a snap election amid mounting controversy over the project’s impact on the environment.
On Wednesday, Greenland’s left-wing pro-environment party Inuit Ataqatigiit finished first in that election with 37% of the vote, paving the way for IA’s 34-year-old leader, Mute Egede, to form a coalition government. The incumbent center-left party Siumut, meaning Forward, garnered only 29% of the vote after backing the mining project. headtopics.comRead more: The Wall Street Journal »
