For this to be possible, access to solid geological back - ground information and large amounts of geoscience data are re quired. Through determined and planned efforts, the Bureau of Mine rals and Petroleum (BMP) and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) have been intensively involved in the geological in vestigation of Green land, and during the last couple of decades with in creasing emphasis on regional mineral resource assessments involving all disciplines of earth sciences.
