Since the early 18th century the search for exploitable minerals has been the motivation for geological investigations in Greenland. GEUS plays an important role in these investigations - involving a variety of geoscience disciplines and methods. Field work and research is carried out in large international networks of both companies and universities.
The assessment of the economic geological potential of mineral deposits in Greenland
is an important ongoing obligation for GEUS.
