Greenland Mineral Occurrence Map on-line

A new source of information on the mineral occurrences of Greenland has been created by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP) as a web site based on an ArcIMS© facility. This provides access to maps and data for many commodities encountered at sites classified as indications, prospects or deposits.

A new source of information

Greenland is a promising country for many commodities. Following a clearly defined policy for the attraction of international investments, GEUS and BMP have for a number of years co-operated to make data and information easily available for the international exploration industry. In January 2005 a new source of information concerning mineral occurrences in Greenland has been opened, providing a GIS interface on the Internet for a first look on the compiled data available in GEUS archives and databases.
