The Palaeoproterozoic Nagssugtoqidian orogen is dominated by reworked Archaean gneisses with minor Palaeoproterozoic intrusive and supracrustal rocks. The Nagssugtoqidian orogen (Fig. 1) was the focus of regional geological investigations by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) in 2001 (van Gool et al. 2002, this volume). In conjunction with this project, geophysical studies in the inner part of Nordre Strømfjord, Kuup Akua and Ussuit were undertaken as part of the Survey’s mineral resource assessment programme in central West Greenland. The studies include geophysical modelling of airborne magnetic data, follow-up studies of aeromagnetic anomalies by magnetic ground surveying, and geostatistical treatment and integration of different geological, geophysical and geochemical data. The aim is to obtain an interpretation of the region in terms of both regional geological features and modelling of local features of relevance for the mineral resource assessment. This paper presents an account of the field work and some of the new data.
