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
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.
