Mestersvig

Project Overview

SEDIMENT HOSTED Zn-Pb-Ag

The Mestersvig Project is located on the east coast of Greenland and only 5km from the Metersvig military base.  Containing the historic Blyklippen Mine that produced a total 545,000 tons of ore at 9.3% lead and 9.9% zinc between 1956-1962.  There are multiple mineralised occurrences that remain un-tested by drilling, and 13km of un-tested strike length that extends from the Blyklippen Mine.

Mestersvig Geology

Local geology is dominated by Carboniferous, Permian and Triassic sediments intruded by Palaeogene dolerite sills and dykes. Towards the south, the area is bordered by the Palaeogene Werner Bjerge alkaline complex, in the west it is bordered by a major regional fault beyond which is the Caledonian fold belt. A 15-20 km-long anticlinal fold structure occurs at Mestersvig, with widespread faulting and the Mestersvig Graben being the most conspicuous structure. The graben is 4km wide and 12km long, with the western graben fault being the host to the Blyklippen Mine.

Mestersvig: Mineralisation

Mineralisation occurs as fault controlled epithermal lead-zinc veins with accessory silver and copper. The veins are widespread in the Mestersvig area, associated with the border faults of the Mestersvig graben, but also occur distal. Mineralisation is hosted within quartz veins that range in thickness from 2-50m, from surface to unknown depth. Ore minerals are typically massive galena and sphalerite, with minor chalcopyrite and barite.
