Abstract

During the past decade the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) has carried out two major resource evaluations in the Precambrian basement terranes of South and West Greenland in order to locate potential areas of mineral deposits (Steenfelt et al. 2000, 2004; Stendal & Schønwandt 2003; Stendal et al. 2004). Based on geological field work and geochemical and geophysical data, these evaluations have assessed the interplay between the magmatic, tectonic and metamorphic evolution in the study areas and their mineralising events. As a result of the second of these evaluations it is now possible to outline a succession of mineralising events in the northern part of the Nagssugtoqidian orogen and in the Disko Bugt area of central West Greenland (Fig. 1), and relate them to the general Archaean and Palaeoproterozoic geological evolution of this region. However, uncertainties still exist concerning the age and detailed setting of many epigenetic mineralisations.
