Abstract [en]

The Nordic countries, including Greenland, have a long tradition in mining. Documented mining dates back to the 8th century AD. Today this region is the most important metallic mining district of the European Union. Metals are producedfrom active mines in all countries except Iceland and related industries are thriving in all countries. Important ore deposit types include: volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits (Cu, Zn, Pb, Au, Ag), orogenic gold deposits (Au), layered intrusions (Ni, PGE, Ti±V), intrusive hosted Cu-Au, apatite-Fe deposits, Cr and anorthosite hosted Ti deposits. Besides these welldocumented deposits, new kinds of deposits are being explored, e.g., iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG), and shalehosted Ni-Zn-Cu and different types of uranium deposits.
