Mineral Resource Assessment Workshop - The nickel potential in Greenland , 27 - 29 November 2012


A workshop on assessment of the nickel potential in Greenland is held at the Geological Survey and Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) from 27 to 29 November 2012.

The workshop is organised by GEUS and the Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP).

The aim of the workshop is to assess the presence of undiscovered nickel deposits in Greenland in the top 1 km of the Earth's crust. Compiled information on known deposits and examination of different geological provinces are used to assess the nickel potential.

An expert panel will assess data, literature, former work, maps, etc. and discuss and assess the possibilities of undiscovered sedimentary nickel deposits within predefined areas.

The following two international nickel deposit experts will attend; Michael L. Zientek from USGS and Marco L. Fiorentini from The Centre for Exploration Targeting, University of Western Australia.

Non-panel participants consisting of exploration companies and research scientists will participate in the workshop as observers. Observers have access to all workshop sessions, can participate in discussions, but do not have voting rights during the assessment sessions.

Due to limited space, the workshop is fully booked and closed for further participation.
