Questions raised about
shares in GMEL
In 2009, Fairfax media claimed
that Shemesian controlled more than
20 per cent of GMEL stock. Range
Resources, another company tied to
Shemesian, had earlier been accused
of paying the disputed government
of the Puntland State of Somalia,
linked to Somali rebels, more than
US$6m for resource rights to the
region. Since then, there have been
very few stories about him.
Kirkegaard responded that the
government dismissed any concerns
about GMEL---"the alleged events
all occurred outside Greenland s
jurisdiction"---and claimed that the
company didn t own an exploration
license anyway, so there was nothing
to worry about.
This isn t quite the case: Greenland
Minerals and Energy A/S (GME), the
firm granted the licence, is the whol-
ly-owned Greenlandic subsidiary of
So is "Mick Many Names" Sheme-
sian involved with GMEL? John Mair,
the company s executive director,
said he isn t "registered as a share-
holder." But he would not guarantee
that Shemesian has no involvement
Mair is proud of the Kvanefjed
project, where "risks can be appro-
priately mitigated." GMEL was
"working with Greenland to help
establish a secure and viable econ-
omy that will help sustain their
increasing political independence,"
he told me, adding that he was "opti-
mistic" GMEL would be granted a
mining license in the foreseeable
future because "we have much local
community support in Greenland."
A key shareholder in GMEL is
Perth-based geologist Greg Barnes,
founder and CEO of Tanbreez. He
said he has personally invested
US$40m towards mining possibilities
in Greenland. He said he has known
Shemesian for 30 years and "has
heard that he has a 50 per cent share
in GMEL and I ve heard that he has
zero per cent. I have no relationship
But in December last year he told
Grønlandsposten, a Greenlandic
newspaper that, "he and Shemesian
could probably fire GMEL s board if
they wanted to." He said this referred
to the make-up of GMEL many years
"[Greenland] is the size of Western
Australia but it has no mines"
said. "In Western Australia an appli-
cation for mining would take three
months but in Greenland it takes
years." A vast part of Greenland has
been "staked out by a number of
Perth companies." Barnes isn t con-
cerned about climate change
"because it didn t really show up in
places like Greenland apart from
some ice sheets reducing."
