The Mineral Resource Assessment project is an ongoing project to assess the potential for undiscovered economic mineral deposits. Each year a new commodity is selected for assessment. An expert panel is convened, comprising experts in the commodity and mineralisation type and experts in the geology of Greenland. A workshop is held to discuss the potential for undiscovered deposits in Greenland, based on the know geology and mineral occurrences and using a standardised system of assessment developed by the United States Geological Survey. Previous workshops have assessed the potential for orogenic gold, rare earth elements, tungsten, magmatic nickel, zinc, iron ore, platinum-group elements, titanium and vanadium, unconformity-related and sediment-hosted uranium, and graphite. In 2018, the panel will assess the potential for industrial minerals. The project is co-funded and carried out by MMR and GEUS.
