|The Greenland Mineral Occurrence Map (GMOM) project.
The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum in Nuuk (BMP) have worked together for many years to inform the international exploration and mining community of the mineral potential of Greenland. Since 2004, data on mineral occurrences in Greenland has been organised in the database GMOM and presented on the Web together with various geodata. The information and data in GMOM are described in Thorning et al (2004), 'On-line presentation of mineral occurrences in Greenland'.
The presentation encompasses result of the regional mineral resources assessment programme in West Greenland (1999 to 2003), in the Nuuk region, southern West Greenland (2004 to 2008), and from South Greenland (late 1990's). Other regions to follow.
An ArcIMS environment was chosen for the web presentation of information. The facility is anchored on the pages you are reading now, and will open its own window; you can easily return to this window to check definitions and get further background information.
