New results from North Greenland added to the Zinc data Package

Publiceret 30-01-2014

Recent fieldwork in North East Greenland adds new data to already established data package on zinc.

In 2012 and 2013 reconnaissance work was carried out in the Eastern part of the Franklinian Basin of North Greenland - within the framework of the so called NordZink project. The areas of Kronprins Christian Land, Peary Land and Amundsen Land were covered and stream sediment samples were collected. The analytical results of this work complement those included in the zinc data package, originally released in 2011. The new data (locations + complete analytical results) on these additional stream sediment samples can be downloaded at ZincDataPackageUpdate.xls (Microsoft Excel file ~600kb). This new data can be used in new exploration initiatives.

Further information on the results of the carried out work, including the setting of recently identified mineral occurrences, can be found in the following published reports:
