Registration of kimberlites and other potentially diamond-bearing rocks in Greenland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


    Kimberlites are potentially diamondiferous rocks. They have been found at a number of localities in Greenland (Fig. 1), notably in the Holsteinsborg-Sarfartoq region and south of Frederikshåb (Andrews & Emeleus, 1971, 1975, 1976; Larsen, 1980; Scott, 1977, 1979, 1981; Thy <i>et al.</i>, 1987). Prospecting for diamonds and kimberlites was carried out by several mining companies in West Greenland in the years 1970-1988.
