Abstrakt

During field work in 2008, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland investigated the gold potential of hydrothermal vein systems in the Nuuk region of the Archaean North Atlantic craton. A new gold occurrence was discovered on the island of Qilanngaarsuit, 35 km south of Nuuk. Two cross sections through hydrothermal alteration zones, that locally contain up to 672 ppb Au, were mapped and sampled in detail. In this study, we present petrological and geochemical data in order to constrain the conditions for ore formation and transport of elements during fluid–rock interaction.
