23-25 November 2016 - Mineral Resource Assessment Workshop: The uranium potential in Greenland


A workshop on assessment of the uranium potential in Greenland will be held at Geological Survey and Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) from 23-25 November 2016. Everybody with an interest in economic geology can participate as observers at the workshop.

The workshop is organized by GEUS and the Ministry of Mineral Resources in Greenland (MMR)

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

The workshop will make use of a standardized process in which an expert panel, comprising geoscientists with knowledge on uranium mineralisation and/or Greenland geology assess all data, literature, former work, map, etc. and discuss and assess the possibilities of undiscovered uranium deposits within predefined areas.

The workshop is open to all with an interest in economic geology. However, all non-panel participants will have a status as observer in the workshop and cannot participate in the expert panel.
