Exploration for diamonds in West Greenland has experienced a major boost within the last decade following the establishment of world-class diamond mines within the nearby Slave Province of the Canadian Arctic. Numerous companies have active programmes of diamond exploration and increasingly larger diamonds have been discovered, notably a 2.392 carat dodecahedral stone recovered by the Canadian exploration company Hudson Resources Inc. in January 2007. The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) is currently carrying out several studies aimed at understanding the petrogenesis of diamondiferous kimberlites in Greenland and the physical and chemical properties of their associated mantle source regions (e.g. Hutchison 2005; Nielsen & Jensen 2005).
