Garde, senior research scientist at GEUS, have discovered the remains of a giant 3 billion year old impact near the Maniitsoq
region of West Greenland.
Discovery of the crater at Maniitsoq
has attracted the interest of a Canadian mining firm because asteroids deposit valuable metals such as nickel and platinum.
The crater has been named Maniitsoq
after the nearest settlement 40km away.
Lokken described how a proposed aluminium smelter, in Maniitsoq
on Greenland's south-west coast, will bring in 3,000 workers, swamping a town of 2,800 people, and transforming a natural landscape into an industrial one.
It also runs 2 molybdenum mines in Norway and the Maniitsoq
diamond deposit in the Greenland.
The aluminium smelter project is being built at Maniitsoq
, located in Greenland's western region, with Tasersiaq chosen as the site for the supporting hydro-power plant.
