Greenland Mineral Resources Portal - Status 2016. Mineral Occurrences under the Greenland Portal

Simun D. Olsen

Research output: Book/ReportReport (publicly available)


The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland has stored information about mineral occurrences since 1989. This information was made available on the web in 2004 for the first time as the Greenland Mineral Occurrence Map (GMOM). In 2011, the mineral occurrence data were moved from an Access to an Oracle database and in 2012 the Greenland Mineral Resource Portal was launched and has since grown to host numerous data sets including data about mineral occurrences from GMOM. This portal functions as a stepstone for industry as it holds a wealth of information and provides links to original resources. Our ambition is to add more datasets in the future and to continue to provide up-to-date information about Greenland’s mineral resources.

This report describes the current status of the mineral resource datasets that have been compiled over the last 2 years, with new and updated mineral occurrences, intrusions and Mineral Assessment Workshops tracts, and presents the Greenland Mineral Resource Portal, the webpage that hosts these data.
