Mineralogy and genesis of the Skaergaard PGE-Au Mineralisation

The Skaergaard intrusion, East Greenland, hosts a large-tonnage but low-grade platinum-group element and gold mineralisation, and is a world-renowned laboratory for understanding igneous processes. GEUS actively collaborates with researchers at leading universities in the EU and US to advance the understanding of both this deposit and fundamental processes in layered mafic intrusions.

Minerals have been concentrated from many drill-core samples, photographed, measured and analysed to have a complete picture of the mineralogical and petrographic relations.
