Call for Preparatory Project Proposals on On- and Offshore Exploration OUTCOME

Published: 3 June 2015

Following NordMin call for preparatory project proposals on On- and Offshore Exploration and the evaluation of submitted proposals by NordMin Steering Committee, the following preparatory projects have been granted 200.000 DKK each:

  • “Assessment of undiscovered mineral resources in the Nordic countries and Greenland”, coordinated by the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK). The project aims to promote the planning of land use and natural resources management, to direct targeted mineral exploration according to the principles of sustainable development, to create conditions for the continuing development of the mineral sector by homogenizing the data in the Nordic countries and attracting mineral exploration companies, and to strengthen and increase the know-how in the participating organizations concerning the assessment of undiscovered mineral resources.
  • “Modern and ancient VMS-forming hydrothermal systems”, coordinated by the Iceland GeoSurvey (ISOR). The aim of this project is to develop new sensitive technologies for on- and offshore exploration and environmental monitoring, giving new insight into deposit characteristics and how the deposits are distributed and formed  in 2D, 3D and 4D.
