GREENLAND - TRUE NORTH GEMS of Vancouver has received formal approval from the Greenland government to sell rubies and pink sapphires from the company's property on the west coast.
True North is in the final stages of sorting, grading and analyzing the concentrate from its 30-t bulk sample recovered from the Aappaluttoq occurrence during the 2006 field season. Cutting has begun on select parcels of stones and True North expects to provide initial cutting information in the first quarter of 2007.
