Airborne high-resolution geophysics in Greenland

Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS)

Based on public funding and a defined strategy to stimulate mining exploration activities in Greenland, airborne geophysical surveys have been conducted over parts of Greenland, producing a total of 643 000 linekilometres of geophysical data.

The AEM Greenland 1994-1998 project, encompassed high resolution detailed multi-parameter surveys (electromagnetic, magnetic and partly radiometric) in the years 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, and 1998 survey 1 and survey 2 producing a total of 75 000 linekilometres. The Aeromag projects, encompassed high resoultion magnetic surveys conducted in 1992, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2001, and 2012 producing a total of 568 000 linekilometres. The projects were financed by the governments of Greenland and Denmark. More detailed information on the available geophysical date is given in Geology and Ore No. 22, and information on how to order data is here .

Exploration companies active in Greenland have also carried out airborne geophysical surveys. Information and data can be obtained from GEUS for surveys where confidentiality is not applied.

All available geophysical surveys are shown on the Greenland Mineral Resources Portal :
