Abstract

In 2004 the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) initiated a study of the origin and tectono-metamorphic evolution of greenstone belts and important regional structures in the central Godthåbsfjord region, southern West Greenland (Fig. 1; Hollis et al. 2004). Like other Archaean belts worldwide, these greenstone belts are locally host to gold mineralisation. Their complexity requires a combination of detailed geological mapping, geochemistry, petrographic work and geochronological studies to develop models of their geological setting, evolution and gold mineralisation.
