The SEGMENT project (South-East Greenland Mineral ENdowment Task) was initiated in 2011 and will terminate by the end of 2015. It is financed jointly by GEUS and the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Government of Greenland (MMR; formerly the Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum). The objective of the SEGMENT project is to increase the data coverage and improve the knowledge-base for the evaluation of the mineral endowment of the North-Atlantic Craton, the Ammassalik Mobile Belt, and the Palaeogene magmatic suite in South-East Greenland between 62°N and 67°N.

SEGMENT was initiated with regional geological reconnaissance, stream sediment, till, and fresh water sampling program through 2009 and 2010. In combination with previous geological reports the analytical data obtained from these sample sets constituted is the first modern and comprehensive data sets from the region and were the basis for the planning of the investigations to be carried out in the following years.

In 2011 and 2012 the focus of the SEGMENT project was centred on the Skjoldungen area of the North Atlantic Craton in South-East Greenland (62°N to 64°N). Major field campaigns were completed, and in the original plan for the field work related to the SEGMENT project was to be continued in the Tasiilaq region in 2013. However, due to budget considerations the fieldwork in the Tasiilaq region was postponed until 2014. Year 2013 was instead used for continued investigations of already sampled material, archived data and results from the Skjoldungen region, as well as the preparation of the 2014 campaign in the Tasiilaq region.

The current report provides an overview of the work carried out in the SEGMENT project in 2014, as well as the fiscal information for the project. Obtained scientific results, as well as compilations of new data and geological maps, are presented in separate report
