Prospecting for dimension stones in Greenland

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftArtikelForskningpeer review


Dimension stones, or ornamental stones, are naturally occurring rocks that have properties that make them suitable for decorative exterior and interior use in the building industry. Large parts of Greenland should have a good potential for finding occurrences of valuable dimension stones, and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and Greenland Resources A/S (GRAS) therefore carried out prospecting in several parts of Greenland in the summers of 2001–2004. The project is mainly financed by the Government of Greenland, but recently the European Union and Nuup Kommunea have also contributed.
