Resumé

Dolerite and lamprophyre dikes from Tugtilik in the southern part of the onshore exposure of the East Greenland coastal dike swarm are described. The dolerites, which are earlier, are similar to other tholeiites from the dike swarm and the plateau basalts and also to many Icelandic tholeiites. Transitional varieties have been identified from the Angmagssalik district. The lamprophyres have a nephelinitic composition and are rich in phenocrysts and xenocrysts. In one case, abundant low pressure inclusions occur. Rocks identical to these lamprophyres have not previously been described from Greenland but are well known, for instance, in the African Rift.
