Providing research and education at a high international level is a prerequisite for the raw material sector to develop competitive and cost effective exploration methods. The NordMin project CRUSDMID-3D is a consortium between research institutes, academia and SME supporting a PhD project to study some of the geological processes in Greenland that are related to ore deposits, to understand the relationships between structures and mineralization. The new geological and structural data together with aeromagnetic/electromagnetic surveys and the drill-core data added new values to the regional knowledge of East Greenland. The exploration tools developed within the PhD-project are expected to be useful in planning and executing future exploration campaigns in similar but also other geological environments.



The project CRUSMID-3D

The project CRUSMID-3D (Crustal Structure and Mineral Deposit Systems: 3D-modelling of base metal mineralization in Jameson Land, East Greenland) is based on a consortium between GEUS (The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland), LTU (Luleå University of Techology), ISOR (Icelandic Geosurvey) and Avannaa Resources (Mineral Exploration company). The Project was co-funded by NordMin (A Nordic Network of Expertise for a Sustainable Mining and Mineral Industry) for a period of thirty months. Unfortunately the private company closed down for several reasons at the end of 2014 without continuing the economic support to the project. The economic loss was partially covered by NordMin with an amendment to the contract in 2015.
