During the summer of 2007, POLOG acted as turn-key operator for exploration activities by Ironbark Gold Ltd in North Greenland.
The requirement of Ironbark Gold was a fully functioning 40-person camp, designed for year-round activities.
POLOG managed authorizations and permissions, equipment purchasing, camp design, construction and operation.
POLOG also coordinated the airlift and transport of a Prinoth snow grooming machine in to the camp site (approximately 350 km from the nearest airport).
POLOG used this machine to construct a fully functional runway on sea-ice to accommodate a C-130 cargo aircraft. The C-130 was used to airlift in approximately 300 tons of equipment.
