Arctic Layered Intrusions as a Source of Critical Metals for Green Economy (KO 5125)
Funded by Kolarctic CBC 2014-2020

Objective of the project

The aim of the micro project was to plan a larger, collaboration project, which will conduct a detailed study of mafic layered intrusions in the Arctic region for the genetic models and exploration strategy of the mineral deposits.

Main activities

Workshops between the partners, field trips,


During the workshops, a research and educational collaboration platform for the green-economy metal mineralization involving both academy and industry was established among the 3 participating countries. In terms of ore deposit model refinement, the project has identified the key research questions and research methods to address them in a larger collaboration project. From the two workshops and several other seminars, there are about 30 presentations all together. Two abstract volumes were published related to these presentations (26 abstractes together). Cumulatively, there are 57 personals participated the workshops and seminars. One manuscript using co-eval mafic dyke swarms in Fennoscanida to constrain the magma source of layered intrusions has been submitted to peer reviewed journal, and a draft of project proposal has been completed.
