Research output: Contribution to journalArticleCommunication


Supply of rare earth elements (REE) is complex. REE deposits are geographically unevenly distributed and the content of individual REEs varies from deposit to deposit; some deposits only containing a few of the REEs in demand. Greenland is endowed with several large REE deposits, related to various geological settings. Several projects have reached advanced stages of exploration. Additionally, Greenland also holds geological terrains favourable for hosting undiscovered REE deposits, as concluded in a recent REE workshop.
