The organizing committee of the NAC Conference 2014 would like to invite you to attend a two day conference on craton specific exploration targeting, using the North Atlantic Craton (NAC) as the area of interest.
This event is organised by the Cardiff and St. Andrews University Chapters of the Society of Economic Geologists, and the Applied Mineralogy Special Interest Group of The Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland, in conjunction with the British Geological Survey and Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.
This workshop, on the mineral potential of the North Atlantic Craton (NAC) as a whole, is aimed at initiating and furthering trans-Atlantic collaboration in understanding the Archaean cratonic controls on ore deposit formation through time. The Archaean high-grade gneiss terrain of the NAC stretches from Labrador, Canada, through Greenland and into NW Scotland, UK. Acceleration in exploration efforts for various commodities across this region, particularly in Greenland, has highlighted the potential of its mineral resources. More recently, the importance of a craton-specific approach to mineral exploration has been realised.
