Regulations for field work regarding mineral explorations in Greenland.

National Environmental Research Institute,

Dept. of Arctic Environment

Mineral explorations in Greenland are subject to regulations from a set of rules that aims to protect the fauna, flora and terrain of the Greenlandic environment.

These rules are prepared by the Greenland Government's Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum (BMP) in co-operation with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the National Environmental Research Institute (NERI).

The rules are prepared under article 24 of the Mineral Resources Act and can be found in full in: Rules for field work and reporting regarding mineral resources (excluding hydrocarbons) in Greenland by the Government of Greenland, BMP, June 1999, which is obtained through this

Parts of the rules apply in addition to the general provisions also to fieldwork and exploration within areas and periods of particular significance to the wildlife.

All the provisions are based on the existing biological knowledge and are shown on a dynamic web map service.

This dynamic web map service shows a map of Greenland and the user is offered the opportunity to browse through the areas of Greenland and observe the location and type of the areas that are considered important to the wildlife.

Areas protected by nature conservation and areas with license to mineral exploration are shown too.

Most of the map layers can be switched on and off.

The maps on which the areas are shown includes the 1:2,500,000 and the detailed 1:250,000 maps of Greenland from GEUS and the National Survey and Cadastre.

When zooming closer than a 100-km view the detailed maps are used and will take somewhat longer to load.

The dynamic web map service can be managed by tools like: PanZoomIdentify and Print.

A link to further help with the webgis is on the upper right of the map page.
