Explore the mineral resources and geoscientific data of Greenland

Use the Greenland Mineral Occurrence Map to explore selected geoscientific data relevant for mineral resources in Greenland. The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland has developed the map for the Bureau of Mineral and Petroleum. The facility will gradually be enlarged to include information from many regions in Greenland. Information on the project, definitions and further explanations are available elsewhere on the page. Use the clickable map or the corresponding links below. This will open a new window in GEUS´ ArcIMS environment.
