Research output: Contribution to journalArticleCommunication


A workshop on the ‘Assessment of the nickel potential in Greenland’ was arranged by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the former Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP) on 27–29 November 2012. The purpose of the workshop was to assess magmatic komatiite-hosted, conduit- and contact-type nickel deposits, and also to assess the possible presence of undiscovered nickel deposits in Greenland in the uppermost part of the Earth’s crust and to rank the most prospective areas. The procedures for the assessment and ranking of the individual tracts were designed to comply, as much as possible, with the ‘Global Mineral Resource Assessment Project’ (GMRAP) procedures defined by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
