DescriptionGreenlanders are bracing for a snap election that is being viewed as a referendum on a controversial mine that has not yet opened.

Kvanefjeld, the rare-earth mineral project near Narsaq in southern Greenland, has divided the political system for more than a decade, and is of significant importance to the global mining industry.

Greenland Minerals, an Australian company, owns the site and China’s Shenghe Resources is its largest shareholder.
According to the company, Kvanefjeld has “the potential to become the most significant Western world producer of rare earths”.

On Tuesday, Greenlanders will vote for their national parliament, the Inatsisartut, and municipal representatives.
