Event Details


Mineral Resources in North Norway (MINN) is a government-funded program for geophysical mapping in Northern Norway and is part of the Norwegian governmental strategy for developing the country’s mineral industry.
Geophysical mapping, using planes and helicopters, is a crucial pursuit for NGU in the MINN program. NGU acquired new high-resolution airborne electromagnetic (EM), magnetic and radiometric data in the framework of the project. Geologists will then follow up on several points of interest while, at the same time, several thousands of moraine samples are collected for geochemical analysis. Examples from Northern Norway airborne data interpretation and ground follow-up work to revisit the known graphite deposits and find potential new ones will be presented.
