    Abstract

    The Caledonian crystalline complex of Renland and the southem Stauning Alper, south and north of the outer part of Nordvestfjord, was mapped by GGU (Grønlands Geologiske Undersøgelse) on a 1:50 000 scale in the summer of 1969. The region to the west, around the inner part of Nordvestfjord, was mapped in 1968 (Henriksen & Higgins, 1969). To the east the crystalline complex is bordered by prominent faults which separate it from the Upper Palaeozoic and Mesozoic rocks of the Jameson Land basin.
