Geus provides a scientific basis for targeted and environmentally sound exploration and exploitation of mineral deposits in Greenland and Denmark
GEUS studies possible sources for metals and fluids, their pathways, and mechanisms leading to metal precipitation, in order to develop metallogenic models for mineral occurrences.
GEUS undertakes mineralogical and petrological studies to improve the understanding of the geological development of Greenland and its economic potential.
GEUS has a number of laboratories for analyses of raw materials, rocks, and aerial photographs.
Geoscientific maps constitute an important element of GEUS' work in Greenland and includes geological and geophysical maps supplemented by geochemical and spectral data.
GEUS assists the authorities with consultancy about sustainable use of Danish raw materials, including identifying the scope and quality of resources.
The Center for Minerals and Materials (MiMa) objective is to build knowledge about issues related to supply and scarcity of raw materials, and to provide solutions for future raw material challenges.
