Abstract

We report new zircon U-Pb and Hf isotopic data from the Skjoldungen region between c. 62°30´ and 63°40´N in South-East Greenland. The work was carried out under the South-East Greenland Mineral Endowment Task (SEGMENT); a joint project between the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the Ministry of Mineral Resources (MMR) in Greenland to assess the mineral endowment and update the geological knowledge of the region using modern petrological, geochemical and geochronological tools. This paper presents new zircon U-Pb and Hf isotopic data from a range of different Archaean rocks in the Skjoldungen region, which greatly improve the understanding of the history of crustal growth.
